Beauty Product Tip: How to choose the right shade of lipstick


Warm, orange-y reds work best on yellow-toned skin tones but you can still wear them if you have red undertones if you neutralize those undertones first with foundation. Classic warm reds include Mac’s Lady Danger, Rouge d’Armani 401 and Rouge Allure Incandescente 97 by Chanel. Cool bluish reds and pinky reds work best with cool skin tones. One of the bluest red lipsticks is Tom Ford’s Cherry Lush. Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge Ruby Exquis 182 is another good one. And Maybelline Super Stay 14hr Lipstick in Non-Stop Red 510 is a real favorite right now among makeup artists. More neutral reds that almost anyone can wear are the classic Ruby Woo by Mac, Maybelline’s Colour Sensational Lipcolor is Fatal Red 530, and Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire and Ice, which has been around as long as your grandma has been wearing makeup. (And it's probably holding up a lot better than she is.)
