My skin is too white to use red lipstick or didn't find the right shade.

maybe a softer/ sheer or yellow based red wouldnt wash your complexion out.

maybe something like this?


i think red looks good with pale skin....

I find scarlet red works well with pale skin..

it all depends on her undertone.
honestly, i'd have to say that she's safer going with a blue-based red like revlon's 'revlon red' (which is one of the greatest red lipsticks ever!) or perhaps dior's roulette red...or dior's firey red. [/b][/quote]
Thank you!

I would love to wear red lipstick, but for some reason I look like a two year-old playing with her mother's make-up when I have it on
Does anyone have any tips that can help me pull off the look of red lipstick? (i.e. using lipliners, different eyeshadows, ect.)
Thanks!

red lips are bold. NEVER try & wear color on your eyes aswell.
it's RED lips / dramatic eyes.
so go for either nude shadows
or a classic look . . with white shadow & black liquid liner & lotsa mascara.
i think you hafta be careful w/blush & red lipstick.
heavy blush & red lipstick can make you look like a doll.
so try & stick to no blush if you can. a sorta porcelain look // or //
a very sheer wash of color.
i recommend MAC sheertone blushes.
they have fab texture & the color is easy to build up.
always use lipliner w/lipstick to stop the color from bleeding & smudging too much.
try coloring in your lips with nude lipliner & then adding a lipstick on top.
that way you can play arounf w/lotsa different shades.
experiment!

hope that helps

Ah, thats what it was! White eyeshadow and black eyeliner! That sounds about perfect
I have peaches 'n cream skin so blush isn't really a problem for me, but the tip about the nude lipliner is something I need to do.
Thanks for the great advice!

I wear colour on my eyes with certain red lipsticks because I have olive toned skin that can pull off colour very well. I like pale, petal pink on eyes with red lipstick and gold eyeshadow works really well too. It depends on the type of red you're using.

Finding Your Perfect Red Lipstick
Thanks to Mrs. Gwen Stefani, lately I have had the yearning to buy some red lipstick... It's so womanly, and is such an easy way to spice up your look when you're low on time.

They say that everybody can wear red lipstick, it just depends on what type (for example, orangish reds, or blue-ish toned reds).

Has anybody found their perfect red? And if so, what's your complexion/hair color? Maybe we could all help one another out.

I am always looking for my perfect red.

I have red-brown curly hair with caramel and gold highlights and blue-green eyes with sort of a dark peachy-bronze complexion.

I look best in blue-reds... The closest I've found it Russet by Prescriptives. But it smells kinda funny, so I dont like it. hehe

I think I look best in brown-reds. Most reds look pink against my warm skintone or make me look like J-Lo in the movie Selena. My favourite is MAC Retro .

The only red lipstick I have ever used is Chanel Russet Moon. I don't know if they still make it, but it was that perfect sexy deep red.....
