“Give a woman the right red lipstick and she can conquer the world”—truer words have never been spoken!

Let’s admit it! Never have we met a red lipstick we haven’t fallen for. It’s a power colour and has the power to take your glamour quotient a notch up with just a single stroke. Win-win!

However, since we all have different skin tones, it is important to pick a red that flatters your skin tone. Confused? Don’t be! We’ve got you covered with different shades of red lipsticks and which one should you go for as per your skin tone. Take a look.

Red lipstick looking extra loud on you? That’s because you’re probably picking the wrong shade of red to complement your fair skin tone. All those with lighter skin tones should ideally opt for vibrant blue-reds with pink undertones to make your lips pop without looking supremely overwhelming. Wear it with a no-makeup makeup look if you want to flaunt just the right amount of glam!

Girls with medium skin tones can pull off almost any red without worrying about it looking understated or overwhelming. However, there are some shades that are definitely more flattering on your skin tone than others. The best shades of red that are most likely to complement medium skin tones are blood red and orange red. Combine your red lippie with a soft smokey eye and some highlighter to finish off your party look!

Whoever said red lipsticks are not made for dusky Indian women, obviously didn’t know what shades of red to go for! Red lipsticks look seductive and stunning on dark-skinned women. PERIOD! While it may be a little tough to find the perfect match for your skin tone, reds are absolutely wearable. You can try glossy reds, coral reds with a shimmery finish and reds with a hint of orange or brown.
