What You Should Know Before You Have Red Lipstick
Do you remember the starlets in the old movies? From Marilyn Monroe to Grace Kelly. They looked beautiful with their sinful red lips. In those days, women were carefully cared for at all times. Their nose was perfectly powdered and their lips were very red.
Makeup technology was so far from what is available today. But when many modern women wear red lipstick, they look tough, garnished or clownish instead of as sensual as they really should be. Add on red blusher made for heavy hand and they look like a bunch of clowns. What are they doing wrong.
How Can You Wear Red Makeup And Look Even More Gorgeous
By the way, when I talk about red makeup, I mean red lipstick and blusher. Some women may even get away with coral eye shadow and see even more stunning for it. I remember a Venetian frog universe that looked absolutely stunning with a red dress and red makeup. Even the eye shadow was coral.
In fact, red lips are considered beautiful across cultures throughout history. Geishas painted small bright red lips on their faces.

In this approach, the lips lip.
Another thing to note is the red color you use. If you have warm skin tone, go for coral red lipstick or an orange red lipstick. A coral or orange red blush would also look wonderful on you, provided you apply it with a very light hand. In today’s pure colors, you can use colors that look very strong in the palette, but act as a transparent flush on your skin for a very flattering result.
If you have cool skin tones, go for a real red lipstick or a red lipstick with blue undertones. These are your best reds. Choose a similar shade for your blush.
