Wear it with jeans, simple hair, and little jewelry. King says, “The thing that stops most women from wearing red lipstick is that they think of it as something that you need to dress up for.”
Pick your poison
If you want to go straight to the deep end then opt for matte red. For baby steps, try a red gloss.
Not all reds are created equal
King’s tips: “If you have fairer skin and hair, orange-based reds will suit you better; for darker skin and hair, go toward pink-based reds.”
Let the lips take center stage
Don’t punch up your makeup to match your lips. “I think red looks best with minimal eye makeup,” King says, “Lay off any competing bright colors...unless of course you are Lady GaGa.”
