Top 10 Favorite Red Lipsticks đź’‹

Red lipstick is either a love or a hate relationship for most women! It is so bold yet adds such a subtle glam look. I personally love to put on a bold lip if I'm not feeling totally put together that day! 

Finding Your Undertone

Undertone, undertone, undertone! If you're not a beauty junkie or simply think one foundation color matches all, then you might not be too familiar with this term! "Undertone" means the tone that's beneath and mixed in your skin. Am I still not clearing it up for you? If you don’t already know your undertone, not a problem! Follow this simple trick!

Let's get science involved. Take a look at the veins on your wrist; if they look bluish, you’ve got cool-toned skin. If, however, they look more green, then you have a warm skin tone – the golden tone or "warm tone" of your skin acts as a filter over the color of your veins making them appear green. If your veins appear bluish-green, then you are a very special one! This means you have a neutral undertone, so you can basically get away with pretty much anything – I'm super jelly!! 

Here is a list of my top 10 favorite red lipstick colors that are universally flattering on all skin tones!

What’s Your Skin Undertone?

Always get compliments when you’re wearing a particular shade? That’s probably because it tones perfectly with your complexion.

Cool Skin Tones

Avoid yellow undertones, and steer away from orange tinges to your red lipstick. Reds with a blue undertone, berry hues, and rosy pink lipsticks will look best on you. Look for lipsticks with blue hues like plum, cherry, mauve, crimson and purples.

The lipstick shades you need are 

1.  Stila Cosmetics True Red (matte)

2.  Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Icon (matte)

3.  M.A.C. Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo (matte)

4. Huda Beauty Power Bullet in Promotion Day (matte)

Warm Skin Tones

If you love coral lipstick, chances are you have a warm undertone. Peachy pink shades, orange-toned reds, coral, browns, golden, copper and rosy nude shades will complement your skin tone best. 

The lipstick shades you need are 

1.  Nars Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil "Cruella" (semi matte)

2. Retro Matte Lipstick in Dangerous (matte)

3.  Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Love Bite (lipstick)

4. Ilia Color Block High Impact in True Red (lipstick)

Neutral Skin Tones

Neutral skin tones you can rock pretty much anything. Neutral skin tones have both cool and warm tones, so there’s pretty much nothing that doesn’t suit you. Seriously, stop rubbing it in already!

The lipstick shades you need are 

1.  Sephora Collection Always Red (matte)

2.  Shiseido Visionary Gel Lipstick in Shizuka Red (gloss)

3.  Fenty Beauty Uncensored (lipstick/gloss)
