Nothing exudes glamour like a ruby pout. Period.
Yet many women are afraid of this look, with legitimate fears that, if chosen or applied incorrectly, it may lead to a garish and tasteless look — like the joker!
The first step in choosing the right red lipstick is deciding upon your skin’s undertone! Two questions will help you decide this issue:
1) Do you look better in gold or silver jewelry — or both? If you look better in gold, your skintone has a warm undertone. If better in silver, your skin is cool-toned. If you cannot decide — or you look good with both — your skin tone is neutral.
2) Do your veins appear blue or green beneath your skin?. If blue, you are definitely a cool-toned individual. If green, your skin is warm-toned. If you cannot decide, count yourself among the neutral toned group!
Here are some celebrity examples — and some recommendations for flattering lipsticks for your skin tone:
