FROM RUBY WOO TO RAG­ING ROUGE, FIND YOUR PER­FECT SHADE OF RED LIP­STICK

Destiny - - Beauty - BY Kho­motso Moloto

Choosing a red lip­stick that suits your com­plex­ion isn't al­ways an easy task. The sub­tleties be­tween the dif­fer­ent reds and the un­der­tones of your skin need to com­ple­ment each other per­fectly in order for you to reap the full aes­thetic ben­e­fits of the shade you ul­ti­mately choose.

For medium com­plex­ions with a yel­low un­der­tone, tan­ger­ine reds work well, while those with caramel tones are com­ple­mented by brown-based reds like raisins and plums.

Dark skins with golden un­der­tones look gor­geous paired with a blue-based red, while dark skins with a cool un­der­tone are best paired with a deep metal­lic shade or deep berry reds.

Happy shopping!
