Understanding Your Skintone

Before we dive into the world of red lipsticks, it's crucial to understand your skintone.

Skintones generally fall into three categories: warm, cool, and neutral.

A quick trick to figure out your undertone is to look at the veins on your wrist.

If they appear more bluish, you likely have a cool undertone. If they look greenish, your undertone is warm.

If you can't quite determine the undertone, you might have a neutral undertone.

The Reds for Warm Undertones

If you have warm undertones, consider yourself lucky because you can rock a wide range of red shades!

Opt for red lipsticks with warm undertones themselves. Think corals, brick reds, and orangey-reds. These hues will complement your warm complexion beautifully and add a touch of radiance to your look.

A shade like our Gloria lipstick, Charon or Cita liquid matte, Yolonda or Niyah lipgloss  might just become your new go-to. Tons of options.

Cool Undertones and the Perfect Reds

For those with cool undertones, your red lipstick journey takes you towards blue-based reds.

These shades will harmonize with your cool complexion, creating a striking contrast that's both bold and sophisticated.

Our lippies in shades:  Cita or Shaneak liquid matte, Niyah  lipgloss, Flossie (returning soon)will bring out the natural coolness in your skin and give you that enviable pop of color.

Neutrals Play Well with Both Worlds

Neutral undertones give you the flexibility to experiment with a wide spectrum of red shades.

Go for classic true reds that are neither too warm nor too cool.

A shade like Shirley or Flossie (returning soon) will provide the perfect balance and make your lips the focal point of your makeup look.


The Final Verdict

Choosing the right red lipstick based on your skintone is all about enhancing your natural beauty.

Whether you have warm, cool, or neutral undertones, there's a red out there that's just waiting to make you feel fabulous.

So, next time you're getting ready to rock that red lip, keep your skintone in mind.

Remember, it's not just about the color; it's about the confidence it brings to your stride.

Go on, embrace the power of red, and let your lips steal the show!
