A classic red is every girl's lips' best friend because it looks great on everyone! The secret to finding the perfect red lipstick is finding out what shade or hue complements your skin tone the best. It may seem challenging and a little difficult but knowing the right shade for you is actually pretty simple and only requires a few steps! First, know your skin tone—this is the key to finding out what makeup looks best on you. Second, you need to know the difference between the type of reds—warm reds are more orange or coral based reds while cool reds are pink or blue based reds. The third and final step is to scroll down and go to your skin tone so you can find out which red will make you look extra pretty!
