Red lipstick is a classic look that is always on trend, but finding the right shade can be a mission! There are a few things to keep in mind that will help guide you in the right direction. With a few simple steps, you will know how to pick the best shade of red lipstick for you.

- Determine whether you are pale, olive, tan, dark, or a combo. From there, analyze your undertones: are you pale with yellow undertones? Pink? Think about your overall coloring and what colors of clothing you usually wear to help here.

- Decide whether you want a look that is a little more subtle or if you want to make a statement. This is more about your mood than anything and will determine the finish you should get. Gloss and tints are less intense, whereas a matte or satin finish will be bolder.

- Search for a color that will compliment your coloring and contrast in the most flattering way. This will perk up your features for the full “wow factor.”



The right shade of red can make you feel like a rock star, a beauty queen, or Hollywood starlet. Use this guide and try on as many as you can until you find the one that makes you shine!
