Red Lipstick – Lakmé
Red is a color that suits all skin types and looks good on almost everyone. It’s a color that even looks good on green dresses.
There’s a reason Christmas decorations catch your attention: Red and green are also complementary colors. Pair a classic red lip with a solid green dress. You can also experiment with light and deep fuchsia lip colors. Don’t wait until Valentine’s Day to try this striking color combination.
If you’re wearing a bright and fun color like yellow, look for lipstick shades that are just as bold and bright as red and pink. Red and yellow is a classic combination that will never let you down. Pink lipsticks will give your makeup a fun and youthful touch, while red lips will give you a chic and grown-up look.
Keep your lips neutral and soft when you wear a mint green dress. Although juicy berry tones can look cool on some girls, this is quite the exception, so you’d better avoid red lipstick shades if you’re wearing mint green.
For a glam aesthetic, try a red or burgundy lip. This bold, glamorous pairing is particularly stunning. If your eyeshadow is a cool, jewel-toned green (like emerald), a cool burgundy or berry lipstick shade can look fabulous. For warmer shades of green, try a classic red lip.
You can choose to match the lipstick to your nail polish or have it different. Some makeup gurus will agree that lipstick should match your nails. Coordinating everything was a big trend a few years ago, but not so much today.
If you want your dark lipstick to be the focal point of your makeup, keep the rest of your makeup light and simple. Use light, neutral eyeshadows and a soft pop of color on your cheeks. Don’t use bright pops of color on your lids that clash with your dark lipstick color.
“Anyone can wear red lipstick because it’s just one color and it’s for everyone. All you have to do is find your shade on the spectrum of red and you’re set done.”
