So everyone knows i’m a red lips girl, one thing that’s always in my purse is my red lipstick. So i thought i would make a quick tip blog on choosing lipsticks for all shades
Now i think people with fair or olive skin will have an easier time choosing lip sticks as long as they avoid colors too deep as to avoid looking washed out or vamp like. But for me it’s a little more difficult … i usually stick with the the deep red or plum shades…
I wish i was more adventurous like MopTopMaven. I lover her blog
How to Pick the Right Shade of Red
“Many women wrongly believe they can’t wear red lipstick. The secret to choosing the right red lip color is in the undertones. Pink-skinned girls should opt for cherry red. Those with olive skin can wear fire-engine red. Dark skin looks great with deep reds. One big red lipstick no-no: It’s best not to match lips to your outfit.”
Don’t be afraid to use a lip liner – I usually use dark red lip liner about 4 shades darker than my lipstick.
“While you can line lips before or after lipstick or gloss application, I find lips look more natural when I line lips after I apply lipstick.
“To keep lipstick from wearing off so fast, fill in lips with liner before applying lipstick. This acts as a color base, so when the lipstick wears off you still have color.To keep lipstick from wearing off so fast, fill in lips with liner before applying lipstick.

Also if you’re going to wear red lipstick avoid applying super heavy eye shadow as to avoid the “heavy makeup” look.
Blending is in
“Few makeup artists stick to one shade of any lipstick, they tend to blend a few to create the perfect colors. If you’ve bought a red lipstick shade that’s too bright, dark or whatever, don’t throw it away. Instead, experiment with other lipstick shades you have on hand to create the perfect shade of red.”
My Favorite Red lip sticks are from MAC – i usually use the Ruby woo or the Russian Red
