Lady In Red

Top Red Lipsticks for Every Skin Tone!

Hey Besties, we really want to you still find yourself asking the question, “Will red lipstick look good on me?” Well, you're not alone. Even though red is universally known as a classic color, most beauty consumers like to admire it from afar. We celebrate the "Lady In Red" while quietly telling ourselves that we could never wear that.

First, we like to think of makeup as an accessory. Accessories are a great way to explore new looks and bold color choices without making a full commitment to overhaul your entire wardrobe. This is the same approach you should have toward trying new lipstick.

Red is the perfect complement to jewel tones like emerald green, purple, and royal blue. It also adds the perfect pop of color to any denim or all black look.

Keep in mind, not all reds are created equal. With that said, there are 5 that every woman should own. They are rich in color and have a blue undertone that compliments nearly every complexion.

Check out our red lipstick picks:
