Pick the Right Shade of Red

Few makeup products are as synonymous with the holidays as a bold red lip. But with so many different formulas and hues, it can be tricky trying to find the perfect shade that suits you best. Here is an easy guideline: pale skin tends to look best with a bright red lipstick that has blue undertones, medium to olive skinned women can really pull off an orange or brick shade of red, and dark complexions look best in high pigment, deep reds, burgundies, and oxbloods. When you are ready to apply, make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized, then add the lipstick, line your lips afterwards to get a really neat and sharp line, and use a little concealer around the mouth to hide any smudges so your lips will look party-ready and Pinterest-worthy!
