Sexy Red Lips

Nothing makes a statement like that one thing that pops. Why not make that your sexy red lips? First off, you have to pick the red that is suitable for your skin tone.
  • Fair skin – If your skin has cool pink undertones, colors that suit you are blue-based reds. If your fair skin has yellow undertones, try colors such as corals and red colors that have orange and golden undertones.
  • Medium skin – Olive and golden skin tones suit brown based and orange based reds. Also, cranberry shades look great on you!
  • Dark skin – Deep, rich colors such as warm brick red and burgundy colors would suit your skin tone the best. Don’t try anything too bright, it may look too harsh.
Before you apply your lip colour make sure to exfoliate so that way the colour goes on smoothly and lasts longer.







Six simple steps! Remember, a red lip is powerful so keep the rest of your makeup minimal and don't add too much gloss. A matte effect is usually better than a glossed effect but if you do choose to gloss, keep it minimal. Have fun guys!

Peace, Love & Blaze,
