New Delhi– Red Lipstick, the crown jewel of lipsticks is a favorite among women. When it comes to bridal looks, brides prefer red over other colors. But difficult to decide against a plethora of red hues! No, they don’t all look the same and red lipstick doesn’t go with all lehenga colors!
To be honest, the trick is to match the undertone of your skin to the undertone of the lipstick. It is simple to determine the undertone of the skin. Every shade of red is unique, just like every skin tone! Chandni Goyal, Training Manager, Anastasia Beverly Hills India shares a guide to help you solve the lipstick complexion conundrum this bridal season
Fair Skin Tone – Brides with fair skin tone usually have cool undertones, so choosing a red that has a blue undertone or a pink undertone should be their go-to. Consider raspberry tones that perfectly complement this complexion and will enhance the bride’s smile. Crimson works well for this skin tone.
Fair to Wheatish – This is the most common Indian skin tone with a warm/yellow undertone. Using an orange-based rouge will be the best bet for a wheat complexion and will illuminate the complexion. Tangerine reds work well.
Medium Skin Tones – Brick reds with an orange/rust undertone work well for this skin tone during the summer season when this skin tone is prone to tan more often, while cool-toned reds work great for medium skin tones also during the winter season . Coral and blood red work well.
Dark Skin Tones – Rust reds are the perfect reds for this skin tone and complement deeper skin tones. Brown works well for this skin tone.
Dark Skin Tones – Deep plum-toned reds are best suited for deeper skin tones which enhance the rich complexion. Burgundy tones suit this complexion well.
Pro tip – whatever your skin tone, if you’re someone with thin lips or yellow teeth, choose a neutral shade of red that has a balance of blue and red undertones to complement any what complexion. Berry tones work well for neutral reds that suit everyone. (IANS)
