lipstick for your skin toneis like hunting down the perfect pair of Levi's. How

How to Pick Red Lipstick
All reds are not created equal and finding the right red means you'll need to know
your skin tone.
To find out what your skin tone – warm, neutral or cool – is, stand in natural light
and place a piece of white paper behind your wrist. Is the tone a red-orange, red-blue,
pink-blue, peach or yellow?
If the skin inside your wrist shows red or orange undertones, your skin tone is warm.
If your undertones are peach, yellow or olive, you've a neutral skin tone.
Blue and pink undertones indicate a cool skin tone. Talk to a beauty consultant
if you aren't sure.
If your skin has pink undertones, you should pick reds that have a pink base. On
the other hand, if you've warm orange undertones, a red with a golden or tawny base
suits you best.
If you're pale and pink, you'll look amazing with red lipsticks that have a bluish
touch. Asian skin should pick berry tone reds such as plum, raspberry, and cherry.
How to Wear Red Lipstick
1. Lightly buff away any dead skin from the lips using a soft toothbrush or damp
washcloth. You want smooth and flake-free lips in order to pull off bold red lips.
2. Apply a moisturizing lip balm, and blot away any excess. Or, you may want to
try a thin layer of lightweight moisturizer.
3. Use a primer on your lips to make a more even surface. Then, outline your lips
within your natural lip line with a well-matched lip liner. This ensures the red
lip color doesn't "bleed".
4. With a lip brush, apply a thin layer of red lipstick. Blend the lipstick into
the lip liner so that there are no hard edges.
To make red lipstick really long lasting, blot and reapply a few times. Separate
the layers in a tissue, and with a large makeup brush, apply a coat of loose powder
through a single-ply of tissue before your last lipstick application.
5. Red is an attention-grabbing color, so make sure keep the rest of your makeup
is as natural as possible. Tone down your blush, eye shadow and eye liner. Nothing
makes a more powerful statement than red lips on a nude face.
