A lot of people shy away from wearing red lipstick but we believe there is a red lipstick for everyone. Wearing red depends on your personality and how you want to present yourself and there are so many variations of red lipsticks available that there is one for every skintone from muted reds to sheer to satins to glosses the consistency of the lipstick also matters. Don’t want to wear a full on red lipstick? Try a sheer lipstick. Don’t want to draw full attention to your red lips? Try a muted or a darker hued red.
Here are our 4 picks – we’ve tried to make sure they are a universal red’ i.e. they should suit most skintones.
