Wearing red lipstick during the day or in the evening creates an elegant and timeless look that will inevitably make a statement. However, to effortlessly pull off a red lip, certain steps must be taken. Here are the six steps to a perfect red lip.

Find the Right Color for Your Skin Tone
Different shades of red suit different skin tones, so be sure to identify the undertones that best suit your skin. The general rule of thumb is that people with pale complexions should use true red hues, people with olive complexions should use brown tinted reds or mahogany, and dark skin tones should consider reds with a blue undertone. And if you want your teeth to seem whiter, then opt for a red lip color with a blue undertone.

Prep Your Lips Properly
