The Perfect Red Lip
Lipstick: NYX Perfect Red
When the holidays roll around I use every chance I get to pull out my red lip shades. Holiday parties, Christmas dinner, or any festive event I attend, I love to plan my outfit around my lips. I wanted to share my secrets on finding and choosing the perfect red lip for your skin tone. Determining your skin tone is the first task, whether it is light, olive, tan or dark. Choosing your undertone can be tricky, you will either have yellow, blue or pink undertones in your skin. Knowing your undertone will be very helpful when choosing your red (I have a yellow undertone). I find that light skin with pink or blue undertones look great in an orange based red. Light skin with yellow undertones look best in blue/purple based reds where as olive, tan or dark skin look best with bright, true red shades.
