Color Me Red

Red lips!
Every lady should have a nice red shade of a lipstick.
The thing about it is you can't really just pick one up at the drugstore and hope it works,
you have to find the right shade for your skin tone.

I received red lipstick as a gift last year and couldn't wear it because my skin tone is to yellow
and the lipstick came out to orange looking on me.
So I asked for help at the make up counter and they suggested I search for a red lip liner with a blue tone,
 to off set the reddish-orange lipstick color I had going on. (It was MAC makeup)
It worked perfect!

Are you one of those lucky gals with a great color skin that can pull any color off?

Is there a certain brand you prefer for your lipstick?

  4. I have similar skin tone to yours so I will have to try a shade with a blue undertone. How in the world do yo tell what undertone it has? Love the red lipstick. I have not found a shade that works for me yet. :)

  5. It has taken me nearly all my adult life to find the perfect shade of red...Lord knows I've tried them all. I finally found the best one for me: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in Are You Red-dy, and on my nails, OPI Big Apple Red...as seen here:
