Choose your hue: warm or cool
Most skins have either a golden (warm) or pink (cool) undertone, which helps determine which red family is right for you. If your skin has a neutral undertone—not noticeably golden or pink—good news! You can choose from either family of reds.
If your skin has a warm, golden cast, choose a warm red lipstick.
Warm reds have orangey undertones that complement golden-toned skin. Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Red Hot instantly brightens lips with a brilliant, warm red. Keeps its just-applied look for hours. More great warm-red shades for you:
If your skin has a cool, pink cast, choose a cool red lipstick.
Go red now, one step at a time.
1. The easiest way to experiment with red? Ease into it with a quick slick of lip gloss. Great shades to try: Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Juicy Apple or Fireberry and Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Raspberry.
2. When you’re ready to go bolder, go classic. Line and fill in lips with Defining Liner For Lips in Red-y Or Not. Slick on your favourite red lipstick or apply with our Lip Brush. For a lip-stained look, blot lips with tissue. For a softer look, top with gloss.
3. With bold red lips, the rest of your face should be clean and simple. Focus on great skin—3-Step Skin Care will help you create a radiant complexion. Softly accent cheeks and eyes with a neutral palette, keeping blush, eyeliner and eye shadow soft so the focus is on lips.
