To determine your skin tone, look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If they appear blue or purple, you likely have a cool undertone. If they appear green, you likely have a warm undertone. If they appear both blue and green, you likely have a neutral undertone.
Once you've determined your skin tone, you can start to choose a red lipstick with the right undertone. If you have a cool undertone, look for red lipsticks with blue or pink undertones. If you have a warm undertone, look for red lipsticks with orange or yellow undertones. If you have a neutral undertone, you can wear both warm and cool undertones.
Consider the Intensity of the Red: The intensity of the red lipstick you choose should also be taken into consideration. If you have fair skin, a bright or bold red lipstick can make a statement. If you have medium skin, a deeper red lipstick with berry or plum undertones can be flattering. If you have dark skin, a bold red lipstick with blue or purple undertones can make a striking statement.
When it comes to choosing the right red lipstick, it's important to try before you buy. Many beauty stores offer testers or samples of lipsticks, so you can try them on and see how they look with your skin tone. You can also ask a beauty consultant for advice on which shades and undertones would be most flattering for your skin tone.
