Information & Advice
A good place to start when finding your perfect red lipstick is by matching it to your complexion. Not sure what your complexion type is? Easy - think about your jewellery. If you suit gold better, you're warm toned, silver you're cool. Shades of red can have three different undertones - blue-toned, orange-toned and pink-toned. By holding them next to each other, you can see which is which.
Blue toned red lipsticks are often called 'true reds' and will complement a cool complexion down to a tea. The great thing about the blue undertones in these shades is that they make your pearly whites appear even brighter. All the more reason to flash your very best red carpet smile!
Pink toned reds warm the complexion, if you're an English rose then these will look fab on you. The pink undertones help to highlight the rosiness in your cheeks, livening up your skin tone and releasing your inner glow. Pretty in pink indeed!
If your complexion is warmer, why not go for an orange-toned or tomato red? The great thing about these coral shades is that with one quick slick you've transformed your daytime outfit to evening chic, simple! The bright orange tones will add a playful, tropical twist to any outfit - happy days!
Deep, ruby reds and cherry-chocolate shades are bang on trend this season. Because it's such a striking shade, forget matching it with your skin tone and match it with your outfit instead. Why not add a vampy edge to the vintage look that's so hot right now? Come on ladies, make a statement and strike a pose!
