Here is a post that I did for From LA, with Love last week. Since red lips are a HUGE trend for fall, I thought I would share it with my lovely Primped & Proper readers. Enjoy beauties.
I am a makeup fanatic. Red lipstick is crucial to have in your beauty arsenal. If it’s good enough for Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor, it’s good enough for you. Red lips are a staple in the fashion industry and should be a staple in your makeup bag. You can rock a lightly pigmented hue during the day and a more scarlet, deep-ruby shades for evening.
There are three different types of red - true-reds, orange-reds, and blue-reds. You don’t need to worry about the colour of your hair or your eyes - just the undertone of your skin. Determine whether the undertone of your skin is neutral, yellow, or pink. If you have neutral undertones, go for true reds, yellow and olive undertones, you should try orange-brown reds, and if you have pink undertones, try going for blue-reds.
Here are some great picks:
