There’s no better way to look holiday party ready than painting your lips a pretty shade of red. Thing is, most girls shy away from the bright color 'cause they think they can’t pull it off.
The trick to wearing rouge lips is to pick the right shade. Colors can be divided into two groups: cool and warm. Cool shades are blue-based and include hues like cranberry. These shades look great on gals with fair skin. Warm reds are orange-based and look great on peachy and tan skin tones. We've got the best shades for your skin!
Porcelain pretties should choose a pretty blue-pink hue. The color will go on darker and really make your kisser stand out.
For this type of skin tone it's best to pick a red lipstick with an orange undertone. The color will appear brighter and more orangey, and make your pucker pop.
Chicas with dark skin can usually go both ways with color. You ladies look luscious in cool AND warm reds. It really depends on if you’ve got more of a pinky or orangey complexion. A cherry lipstick with pink undertones looks great on most gals with dark skin.
