Find Your Dream Red Lip Shade

Choosing a red lip color is much like choosing from dozens of different shades of red flowers. It can seem daunting, but knowing how to compliment colors is the most important aspect of finding the best shade of red, whether you’re dressing up a room- or your complexion.

In order to find your dream red lipstick, you’ve got to know what tone your skin has so as to flatter it best. Here is how to tell which colors look best on you:

  1.  Check the color of your veins on the inside of your wrist. If they are bluish, you’re skin has cooler undertones. If they appear green, you’ve got warm undertones.
  2. Have a look at those peepers. Your eye color is a good way to gauge your skin tone and therefore bring you that much closer to the perfect red lipstick. Blue, gray, or green eyes mean cool undertones while brown, amber, and hazel colors means a warm undertone.
  3. Try the jewelry test: Does silver tend to look better on you? Or does gold compliment your skin best? If silver does, your skin is cooler and if gold is your go-to, then your skin is warm.
  4. How about those lovely locks? Girls with black hair (and especially blue eyes) or brown and blonde hair with ashy, blue, violet, or silver tones have cool skin. Deeper colored hair like strawberry blonde, chestnut, reddish brown and black with gold, red, orange, or yellow undertones have warm skin.

Taking a look in the mirror is one way to find out which shades will suit you best while turning to nature and red flowers reveals the best tones that are out there.
