If you have freckles, DO wear a sheer shade of red lipstick that has orange undertones to help brighten your face.
If you have pale skin, DO pair a subtle smokey eye with a dark grey dress in contrast with a bold lip.
DON’T be caught making funny faces if you haven’t bothered to look in the mirror recently. There’s nothing funny about red stained teeth!
DO pull hair back into a chic ponytail when making a bold lip statement. A soft pink cheek stain is a nice alternative to a basic bronzer or blush.
DO pair a bright summery colored dress with an orange-red lip color like Michelle Williams. Lighter reds keep your look fresher and brighter.
DO try a classic Hollywood look by playing up bold eyebrows and lips together. Finish with a liquid liner on the top lid only, and a loose ponytail with a few face framing strands.
DO wear red for a night out on the town. Nothing says glamorous like a well chosen shade of red lipstick.
DO wear a plum shade of red lipstick with a pretty pink sweater like Natalie Portman. This beauty queen is an expert when it comes to putting effortlessly clean looks together.
DO show off a full set of pearly whites when wearing a glossy red lip color. Red lipstick definitely draws attention to your mouth and teeth – While red will make white teeth stand out and sparkle, it will also make dull teeth appear more discolored and uninviting.
DON’T go overboard in the makeup department. As a standard rule, if you have full lips and are wearing a bold lip shade, its best not to overdo the rest of your face in really loud colors/styles.
DON’T EVER paint your entire eyelid black, unless of course your intention is to look like a stripper or high class prostitute.
DON’T try to look like one of the characters from The Grudge. Everyone loves a good cat eye, but this is way overdoing it.
If your skin is prone to redness, DON’T wear lipstick that has a lot of orange in it. Opt for shades of red with plum or blue undertones to help diminish a blushing face.
DON’T choose a red lipstick on days when you are having breakout problems around the mouth and chin area. A bright red mouth will only draw unwanted attention to pimples and blemishes!
