Red Lips!

One of the latest makeup trends seen on the streets is RED LIPS. This look is a Fall must! However, i know most people are afraid of red lipstick. Everyone I know is always saying you are so lucky being able to wear red lipstick. I usually tell them you can pull it off as well, you just have to find the PERFECT shade.

If you have Fair Skin.
Coral-y reds look BEAUTIFUL on you. They add just a shot of color.   
Here are three colors that you could try. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & ice. YSL Rouge Volupte in No. 16, Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipstick in Are You Red-dy, Lorac Lipstick in It Girl.

If you have Medium Skin.
Anything from true red to pink cranberry shades will work. Your golden undertones will play up the extra color.
Rouge Dior Lipstick in Red Premiere, CoverGirl TruShine Lipcolor in Valentine Shine, Channel Rouge Allure in Audace.

If you have Dark Skin.
You should stick with deep, rich colors. Super bright ones can seem too harsh. L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Red Rhapsody. Lancome L'Absolu Rouge in Smoky Rouge, Urban Decay Lipstick in Sellout, Yves Saint Laurent Pure Lipstick in Opium Red.

 Don't know what kind of skintone you have???
You can find a rich, classic, true red. This works on most skintones. Make sure you just keep the rest of your look to a minimal. You could try Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Underage Red or Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipstick. Red lips look best on an almost bare face.
