The Best Red Lippies for Your Skin Tone

The Perfect Red Lippie

Let’s talk about red lipstick. It’s classic, you can wear it for any occasion, and it goes with any season. But, not all shades of red are suitable for every skin tone. To make sure you’re always slaying a red lip, check out which LiveGlam KissMe shade will look most flattering on you!

What’s your undertone? 

With most makeup choices, it’s crucial to first identify what the undertone of your skin is. This can be either cool (pink), neutral, or warm (yellow). The easiest way to tell this is by your veins. Take a look at your wrist. If your veins look more blue or purple, then you have a cool undertone. If they look green, you’re warm. If you can’t tell or they’re a mixture, you’re likely neutral!

Another easy way to tell is through your preference in jewelry. If you look better in silver, you likely have a cool undertone. If you love to rock gold, you’re probably warm. If both suit you, neutral it is! Fair complexions also tend to have more pink-based undertones, medium complexions tend to be more neutral, and deeper complexions likely have warm undertones. 

Now that you know your undertone, let’s get red-y to find the perfect KissMe lippie for you!

Cool Undertones   

If you have a cool undertone, you should choose red lippies that also have a cool undertone, such as blue-reds. Poison Apple, a cool-toned candy apple red from our October LiveGlam KissMe collection, or Couture, a matte, brick red from our July Collection are the perfect shades for you! You can wear these to any occasion to feel bold and classy.

Neutral 

If you’re a neutral babe, you can go either way and change up your red lip depending on the season! In the winter, you may lean towards more blue reds, and in the summer you can go for the corals, oranges, and yellow-based reds. While you can choose pretty much any hue, we recommend Cosmo from our May 2017 Collection for a true, matte red perfect for making a statement all-year-round!

Warm Undertones 

If you have a warm undertone, you should go with reds that have more of an orange and yellow tone. From KissMe, we recommend Goals from our January Collection, and Poppy from our April Collection. Both of these are striking, bright red matte shades that will suit warmer skin tones. If you’re a fan of more pinky-reds and corals, go for Poppy!

All of these shades are from previous Collections, so if you didn’t get your hands on them, be sure to head to our Rewards page or see if they’re available for Trade through your Dashboard. You can always trade individual lippies or your whole Collection before your package ships out each month! Learn more here.
