Red lipstick is one makeup item every woman should have. It is a beauty statement that speaks a thousand strong words to millions of powerful women worldwide. It is iconic and synonymous with elegance, high fashion, sexuality, beauty, rebellion, and more.
Regardless of your skin tone, there’s a red lipstick out there waiting to become your signature. To ensure you get the correct shade, go for a universal tone like Mac’s Ruby Woo or, more importantly, go with one that fits your skin undertone. Fair complexions usually have a pink-based undertone, while dark skin tones have a yellow undertone. Lastly, since the red lipstick stands out, it’s always best if it’s the focal point of your makeup so it gets the attention it deserves.
