Finding Your Perfect Red Lipstick
miss universe panel of judges.

i know that this red lipstick trend has been around for quite some time, but after i recently watched the miss universe pageant, and seen the two stunning model judges' makeup, i can't help but give it a try!!!

what do you guys think about it?

my boyfriend and brother both hate it on girls, but i find it really attractive!!

red lips have always been a classic look.
red lips with porcelain skin. no blush. white shadow & winged black liquid liner.

You have to make sure the shade is exactly right, the wrong shade can look horrible while the next color in line may look really good, my bf who knows nothing about makeup, could even tell how different I looked with two SLIGHTLY different shades. I cant tell you what will work for you, you just have to try, but for me a red with a little blue in it looks good, whereas my friend looks best wearing red with a slight hint of orange.

I've been going for it lately & love it. Must be really bright, and not during a breakout!

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....

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.

dior's 'firey red':



a tad more orange based, but still a gooorgeous classic 1950's red with a satin finish.
