You’d think it would be easy - just hop into a makeup store and pick out the reddest red they have, right?
But picking the most flattering red lipstick for yourself is a little more complex than that.
Don’t worry, though. We’re here to help you pick the perfect red lippie to make you look like a vixen!
Here’s what you’ve gotta do:
Understand your undertone.
All reds aren’t created equal. Some are warm, some are cool, some are neutral.
To know which one you should pick, look at the veins on the inside of your wrist.
If they look green, your skin’s undertone is warm. If they’re blue, it is cool. And if you can’t quite tell if it’s blue or green, your undertone is neutral.
Pick a red corresponding to your undertone.
Now that you’ve understood your undertone, try to go for a red that corresponds to it.
For example, if your veins are green, you should choose a red that leans a little towards orange (like MAC Lady Danger).
If your veins are blue, opt for a cooler, more pink-toned red (like MAC Relentlessly Red).
If you’re neutral, congratulations: you can pull off almost any red lipstick!
