As the season changes and your tan fades, there is no better time to revamp your everyday makeup look than the present. More importantly, this time of the year is the perfect opportunity to become a little more daring with your makeup for evenings out on the town, as well. Red lips are a classic look for any occasion, especially in the fall and winter months, where darker reds are more commonly incorporated into stylish fall clothing and autumn landscapes. Depending on your personal skin tone, there are many approaches one can take to achieving the perfect red lip. Testing out different shades before making a final purchase is recommended, because sometimes red, once applied to the lips, can easily be too bright, too dark, too orangey, etc. Here is the official guide to finding the red that was practically made for YOU.
For the fairest of fair, you're possibly the luckiest of us all! Red looks amazing with your gorgeous porcelain-esque complexion. In your case, bright corals look amazing on you in the summer, so it is time to switch it up to a deeper, yet still orange-based red. You are one of the only complexions able to pull off the eccentric tones of any lip color (minus shades of beige). Try to play up the pale and have fun with a luminous orange-red.
Girls with pink undertones should go for the tinted pink reds when looking for their perfect shade. A little touch of pink in your lipstick will only help enhance other blushing facial features and look equally as great for everyday and nighttime wear. A funky shade of raspberry-red would be amazing for evening in the upcoming autumn season.
If you are someone with an olive skin tone, play with those majestic maroons that are so gorgeous this season. Not only does maroon have a gorgeous, dark pink-red tint to it, it is also ultra-bold without being outrageously overpowering on your lips. The wine color family is close to being neutral, but much more fun than just being a bland nude or brownish shade, which looks awesome on your darker skin.
Dark skin tones can do a variety of different looks with red lips, it really depends on the mood you are trying to play up! Bright, shiny red lips look amazing on dark skin just as much as deep, dark, matte maroons. However, steering away from orange tones in the fall is an excellent way to transition seasons and try something different once the layers start coming on for the winter.
Having fun with lipstick is easy once you find a few shades you love. Rocking red lips is a statement that screams confidence in itself, so make sure you are happy with what is on your face before stepping out in public wearing. Enjoy the vivacious shades of fall when they last, and happy lipstick shopping, ladies!
