How-to Get the Perfect Red Lip for Valentine’s Day

HI, beauties!

A while back, I had written a piece for Cliche magazine digital publication, which is about how to determine the perfect red lip that is right for you. With Valentine’s Day, approaching, I had thought that this would be so perfect :).


Here is an excerpt of the article, that I know you’ll want to read:

Most women shy away from wearing red, thinking it does not compliment their skin tone. Chances are high that they’ve tried a red that doesn’t match their complexion and decided they will not wear red again, under the belief that no shade of red is for them. Well, ladies, there is a shade of red that is right for you. It’s all about opting for the correct red! First, you need to determine what your undertone is. You do this is by turning your wrists over, so your palms are facing upwards. If you see blue veins, you have a pink undertone, so you have a light complexion. If you green veins, you have a yellow undertone, which means you have an olive/medium complexion. If you have both blue and green veins, then you have both, yellow and pink undertones, which means your complexion is light/medium. Read on for a hopeful little guide to determine the right hues for your skin tone.

If you have a pink undertone to your complexion, then your complexion is considered to be cool. Therefore, deep reds like wine, burgundy, rosewood, cranberry, carmine, and maroon would best suit your skin tone.
