MakeupThe Ultimate Guide to Finding Your Perfect Red Lipstick
  • Find out which red lipstick makeup artist Amy Nadine recommends for your skin tone ...

  • If you have a fair skin tone like Emma Stone, Krysten Ritter or Taylor Swift, opt for a red with cool undertones. "CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Hot is the perfect blue-based lipstick for these skin tones," says Nadine.

  • If you have an olive skin tone like Rachel Bilson, Lauren Conrad or Jamie Chung, then your undertones appear more green, says Nadine. Orange-based shades look great in this case then. Nadine suggests NARS Lipstick in Heatwave.

  • If you have a medium skin tone like Zoe Saldana, Eva Mendes or Frieda Pinto, you can pretty much pull off any shade, from warm to cool tones. For medium skin tones, Nadine suggests NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square, though it depends on your mood and whether you want to match the red to what you're wearing.

  • For dark skin tones, cool reds work best. If your skin is similar to the likes of Kerry Washington, Beyonce or Jennifer Hudson, try MAC Cosmetics' Lipstick in Ruby Woo.
