So a couple of weeks ago Araffa from Grazia asked me some beauty tips on choosing a red liptick for your skin tone which can baffle many women or the other alternative they don’t wear a red lip at all!! They also featured me in one of their issues and on Grazia online sharing my tips. Now you all know I love a red lip its the one makeup item that is a must have as it just lifts the complexion in an instant.

A stained red lip also can work well if you are too scared that it will be too bold, just take your lipstick and press with finger tips.

For those paler complexions with a more yellow undertone a red with a hint of pink undertone can look really amazing too.goldmediumFor those golden/medium skin tones you can go bolder I fall into the more golden skin tone and I get away with pretty much all the shades of red but I do steer clear of the more brown reds. Here you can go for a bright red like Mac Russian Red, L’Oreal Colour Riche J Lo’s Pure Red or what I am wearing in the above picture the L’Oreal Colour Riche in Scarlett Creme. I also love Lady Danger and Ruby Woo for this skin tone so play around and see what you love the most.

Dark redFor the darker skin tones a deep reds and reds with a brown undertone looks pretty amazing, if you are more the medium to dark you can definitely pull off the brighter reds not all dark skin tones can wear a bright red but everyone is different so again play around.
