Luscious red lips pack a serious punch of sex appeal and sophistication. Years ago we saw bright red pouts from acting icons like Rita Hayworth, Marilyn Monroe, and Joan Collins. Today, leading ladies like Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Susan Sarandon, and Meryl Streep work the resurfacing trend that seems as if it’s here to stay.
Red lips are great because they brighten your smile and have the power to transform even the most basic outfit into something mysterious and highly glamorous. So is red right for you? Depending on your skin tone, there are shades awaiting everyone!
If you have fair skin opt for a sheer blue-based red, as it will not look overly harsh against your tone. If you have olive skin, you are able to pull off nearly any red because you have warmer undertones. If you have darker skin, choosing a red with a brown base is ideal for you. Dark cherry or burgundy never fails this type of skin tone.
The power of red has been around for decades and it has become a make-up staple that is here to stay!
