5 Red Lipsticks That Will Suit Every Skin Tone
As much as we love a perfect nude lipstick for everyday wear, there’s nothing quite like a bold red lip to show off some personality. A trusty red lipstick has been an essential part of beauty arsenals for centuries and there are countless ways to mix and master the classic shade. Not all reds are created equal though and finding the right one for you all comes down to your skin tone. Individual skin tones require different lipstick shades and undertones to match their skin, but with a little perseverance (and a lot of swatching) you will find the best shade for you. Keep these tips in mind as you shop:
Light Skin Tones: People with lighter skin tones tend to look better in cool reds and berry reds with blue undertones, like cranberry.
Medium Skin Tones: Medium skin tones have a bit more versatility when it comes to picking a red lipstick. Olive skin looks best in yellow or orange-based reds and warmer medium tones look great in brown-reds.
Dark Skin Tones: Dark skin can handle more intense colour, like deep reds and reds with blue undertones. Try going for wines, berries or a brick red.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Rouge d'Armani lipstick 系
