A breakdown of the top 10 Red lipsticks that every glam lover must have!
Finding a lip colour that complements your skin tone can be a frustrating and time-consuming process. Red lipsticks are timeless and can add sophistication, glamour, and class to any makeup look. From Hollywood royalty Marylin Monroe to the red carpet at the Oscars, the red lip has been a classic.
It is important to know your skin tone before choosing a red lip, identifying whether it is warm or cool. If you do this, it is flattering to choose a red lip with the same undertone.
