How to: Bold, Sexy Lips

Red: The color of passion, the color of love and It’s probably the sexiest color around and when painted on your lips, it’s dynamite..

Wearing red lipstick it’s so simple but yet so tricky, not all of the shades of red are a perfect fit for everyone, maybe you even think that you are not able to pull off a red lipstick look because it looks funny or weird on your lips, maybe it just means that you haven’t been wearing the right shade or you still haven’t found it. Don’t worry we got everyone covered.

Let’s start

If you have pale skin with neutral to peachy undertones the best way to go with a red lipstick is one that is matte and that slightly errs on the side of orange tones.. one of our faves on this category of color is: NARS Lipstick in “Red Lizard”. 

Pale Skin with yellow undertones, a good red match for this type of gals is a warm brick-red lipstick color, remember people with yellow undertones don’t get really flattered with pinks, remember to always keep that in mind.. the one we recommend for this type of people is: Clinique High Impact Colour in “Sassy Spice”


Beige Skin, sun-kissed skin with reflections of gold, it’s perfect to wear a dark, deep red with gold undertone, in fact many well-known makeup artist like Raychel Wade, says that this is one of those shades that can work with all skin tones. So Why not give it a try!? Wade, also recommends: NYX Black Label Lipstick in Black Cherry.

Bronze Skin Tone, this lucky ladies that were born with this beautiful bronze complexion can wear just about anything. With a warm undertone and Peachy cheeks, a bright bold coral-y red lipstick will work beautifully. What do we recommend? well if you are lucky and have this type of skin you definitely need to try the Sephora Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencil in “Coral Glow” 


Got Bronze Skin Tone With Olive undertones!? We also got you covered for this gals a combination of cherry/pink/red lipstick goes beautifully with that bronze, golden-y skin of yours. And for you girls we recommend the Chantecaille Lipstick in the color “Cayenne” 


Dark Skin with natural gold undertones, works perfectly with a matte orange/red this helps with keeping it all in the same warm family for guy ladies we recommend: Rouge pur couture the mats in the color “Orange Imagine” You guys will love it.

Deep Dark Skin you gals can wear cool blue based shade and works even better when you carry it through the rest of the makeup (shadows, blush..) we suggest for you guys to try the lipstick made by La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Colour in “Velvet”
