HOW TO GET MY EXACT RED LIP
It's National Lipstick Day! My makeup artist Allan Avendano gave me the PERFECT red lip during a recent photo shoot. Below, he reveals the color he used on me along with recommendations for amazing red lip shades for every skin tone.
The products used on me at the shoot:
Nars Semi Matte Lipstick: Jungle Red
Bite Beauty The Lip Pencil - Poppy Red
Allan also recommends:
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Dragon Girl
"It's great for any skin tone from the fairest to darkest."
Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color - ParisianRed
"Another true red that goes great with any skin tone."
CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Lip Color - EverRead-dy
"Universal red that looks great on any skin tone."
Some of Allan's other faves:
Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro- 400
"This color looks amazing on most people but I especially like it on medium to dark olive skin tones. Think Zoe Saldana."
Dior Matte Rouge Lipstick- 999
"One of my favorite blue red lipsticks that is flattering on most skin tones. But I love it especially on pale to fair skin. It's matte texture and color just look so chic."
Hourglass GIRL Lip Stylo - Icon
"It's so moisturizing and works great on dry lips. Also it has a nice creamy finish and can be applied sheer or opaque. Looks best on medium-toned skin, but anyone can wear it!"
CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick- Hot
"It's super moisturizing and has long lasting color! One of my favorites for all skin tones, but it's magical on fair to medium-toned skin!"
Bite Beauty AmuseBouche Lipstick- Cayenne
"This super bright creamy satin red is great for a stand alone look with no heavy eye makeup because it's so bright. I love it on most skin tones, but a golden tan skin tone really shines with this on!"
