To pull off a classic red lipstick, you will need to know your skintone first: are you warm or cool? Warm tones should aim for more orange red. Cool tones should aim for more of a purplish tone or a classic straight red. With such a pigmented color, it is important to use a lipliner to create long-lasting effect. Smooth on the red lipstick of your choice and top with a lipgloss for a polished look!
