The right red lippy…

Red lipstick not only maketh an outfit but also maketh a make up bag. If you put a gun to the head of most modern women and said they could only take one beauty item on holiday/to Mars/in a really teeny tiny purse – well, let’s face it, it wouldn’t be a loofah.

But the right red… Hmmm, what a conundrum.

The Robert Jones Make Up School handilly posted this vid showing how to use a colour wheel to balance your make up choices and your skintone…

Or you could download a colourwheel App from the Apple Store

Our tips:

Warm skin (tanned, olive) – try Mac’s ‘Good to Go’ which is an orangey matte

Pale skin – try the cherry hues of Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Paris

Dark skin – try the deep and sultry Rouge Basque from Nars
