Perfect red lips for your skin

The red  lipstick has been an iconic beauty staple from ancient Egyptians
using precious stones and bugs to queen Elizabeth I to Marilyn Monroe.
The red lipstick radiates strength and independence.
Woman and occasionally men have worn the crimson lip shade since make-up began, so why is it so hard to find that perfect red? Unfortunately not everyone can wear the dark, dreamy blood red or a bubbly bright, bold red.

Choosing the right red lipstick is about as fun as cleaning toilets. Seriously. I want to cry when I go
to the store and try to figure out which red lipstick is going to look best on me!
After long researching night's I created my own red lipstick "system".

Fair complexions
Use a blue-based red - think raspberry 
to pick up the pink undertones in your skin.

Medium Complexions
Change your lip color based on the season. In the summer, when you're tan,
go with an orangey-red.
Stick with blue-based red, which makes your teeth look whiter, in the winter.

Olive Complexions
Earthy, satutated brick or rust colors will feel most organic,
blend with your coloring and keep the warmth in your complexion.

Caramel Complexion
Stick with cool lip hues that run right in the middle - not too light or too dark.
You can always deepen your red slightly by layering on a coat of burgundy lip color.

Deep Complexions
Merlot, with ist subtle blue tint, is the perfect
lip color for darker complexions with warm undertones.
A warm-based cherry red will even out a dark, but cool skin tone.

These are my all time favourite red lipsticks...
