The red to suit you
If you have fair skin, opt for blue-based reds like Essence
Colour Up Shine On Lipstick in
Shade 06 (£2.30, Wilko). The cooler tones will brighten your skin without washing you out. Olive and medium skins suit coral or orange shades best – CYO Two Tone Twist Ombre Lipstick in Couplet, left (£5), is a real bargain. Finally, darker skins look amazing in deeper reds such as Shiseido ModernMatte Powder Lipstick in Exotic Red
(£25, John Lewis & Partners).
