Because one shade is never enough.

Swiping on a blazing red hue is a power move that can be likened to slipping on a little black dress and throwing on a pair of towering stilettos. It simply gives you that instant boost of confidence.

But since there are a ton of red lippies out there, finding the perfect red shade can be daunting. Fear nota quick and easy way to figure out if a cool- or warm-toned red would suit you is through the jewelry test. Rummage through your jewelry box and pick out one silver and one gold piece. Now, look in the mirror and hold up the gold piece first and compare it to your skin and do the same with the silver one. If you’re more suited to silver jewelry, you have a cool undertone, but if you’re more suited to gold jewelry, you have a warm undertone. Lastly, if both gold and silver looks good on you, you have a neutral undertone.

Now it’s time to find your ideal shade of crimson! Keep scrolling! 

TRUE REDS 

Bright reds with blue undertones add vibrancy to cool and neutral undertones. For this red, be sure to keep the rest of your makeup to a bare minimum for a fresh-faced finish.

WARM REDS

Orange-based reds flatter girls with medium and warm complexions the most. This is because warm reds look great against duskier skin tones because it erases sallowness and brightens the skin.

WINE REDS

Vampy, burgundy hues look best on medium to dark complexions. The overall effect is elegant and not too strong. But for fairer skin tones, you may find these shades a little too intense. Our tip? Start off by applying a wine-hued lippie with your fingers for a stain-like finish and build your way up according to what feels most comfortable.

MUTED REDS

 If you’re quite new to wearing red, muted reds are your best bet. They’re not too loud nor too bright, but nonetheless, still considered red. Plus, if you're not sure of what your undertone is, you don't need to worry as all complexions are suited for muted reds.
