To celebrate 25 years of Bobbi Brown make-up, we caught up with the make-up maestro herself and asked her some of our most pressing beauty questions.
What’s the trick to finding the perfect shade of red lip colour to suit your skin tone?
Red lipstick is as staple and an easy way to make your everyday look festive for the holidays. Despite what you may think, the red lip look is easy to achieve and very wearable. Think about your style and the statement you want to make with red lipstick. In other words, find a red lipstick shade that you’re comfortable wearing.
To choose the most flattering red lipstick, it’s important to use the natural colour of your lips as a guide when choosing a lipstick shade. If your lips have more of a bluish tint then I suggest using a deeper red like Creamy Matte Lip Color in Red Carpet and if your lips have an orange tint then I recommend choosing a brighter red like Creamy Matte Lip Color in Jenna. Also, when choosing a red lipstick pick the one that looks good on your face when you are wearing absolutely no makeup. This is the magic colour that will make your skin, hair and eyes look their best.
