When it comes to red lipsticks, there are so many options out there. If you’ve tried your fair share, you’ll know that different reds are flattering on different skin tones. If you have warm undertones, a yellow or orange-based red is going to complement your skin tone best. If your skin is more pink with cooler undertones, a blue-based red is going to be perfect for you. And of course, there are also the really neutral reds that don’t swing either way, and those are going to more or less work for everyone!
You can of course break the rules and just go with whichever red you love the best, which I highly recommend. Sometimes, you’d surprise yourself by how much you like a lipstick that theoretically shouldn’t be flattering on you.
But for anyone who wants to know which category of red is going to be a safe bet, we’ve put together four different selections for you. There are bright red lipsticks, which I personally love more for daytime and “summer”, and the deeper more sultry reds which are just kickass at night. But as always, when you wear which shade is completely up to personal preference, so have fun with it!
