Oh how I wish I could pull off red lipstick. I’m blonde and I’ve tried it, but I just can’t seem to rock it. Maybe I just haven’t found the right shade yet…

red lipstick is TOTALLY a do

 

the secret is to check the undertones:

 

if you have pink undertones in your skin, get a liptick with blue undertones (you can ask the makeup artist at the counter or google)

if you have yellow undertones in your skin, get a lipstick with more orange undertones

 

a true red looks always good

 

i buy EVERYTHING online except for lipstick. go to a sephora if you have one nearby and jut try on lipsticks until you find a perfect one!

I am blonde and I have found the orangish red ones look best on me, instead of the pinker reds, and I am a pale olive skin tone!

@llgraham:  right, cause your skin as olive (thus yellow) undertones. it’s not really about how dark or light your hair or skin are.

i’m pretty pale but yellow, not pink.

@bebero:  +1!!

I am a blonde with supppper pale skin and it took me (what felt like) a million tubes of lipstick to find the right red. I know personally for me, blue based/toned red was the key but it does really 100% depend on your skin tone.

@LaviniaRose2013:  I am a blonde, and now that I’m over 40, for some reason RED has become “my look” haha! I don’t know WHY exactly it took me this long but Im addicted, and its my signature look. 

daily wear is Clinique Angel Red, a very nice sheer, blue based red.

for my wedding and for special occasions, NOTHING beats Chanel Ruby Lite long wear lip color-gloss sealer top coat combo. It looks amazing, feels great, and is downright irritating as heck to try to remove…..which is fine by me cuz I really value a true “hurricane proof” red lip!!!

PP was right, it’s allllllllll about undertones. EVERYONE can wear a red!!! Get to a dept store with multiple counters and just start trying colors!!! πŸ™‚

@Sweetjennygirl:  Ohhhh…I have to check out that Chanel red.  I wear red a lot in the evenings, but I’m hoping to find a toned-down red, maybe even a berry, for my wedding.  I’ve never worn any Chanel lip colors, but everything I keep reading about “best” makeup for weddings recommends Chanel for lips!

@LaviniaRose2013: I think blondes with red lips look GREAT. I don’t know how you’re doing your eyes, but if you’re going for a bold lip, make sure to keep your eye makeup very neutral. I’m picturing a thick wing with very subtle brown in the crease πŸ™‚ Just a recommendation. I’m a MUA so I like to throw my two cents in πŸ˜‰

 

 

I know shes not blonde but I love this look. Maybe with the crease a little lighter though!
