Red lip shades look stunning on a redhead. Before you purchase your go-to ‘redhead friendly’ red lipstick, it’s essential to know if your skin is warm or cool. This will make it so easy for you to pick the perfect shade of makeup to complement your skin and red hair.

What are cool (pink) and warm (yellow) tones?

Cool Tones:

This means you have a blue-green tint to go with that fleshy skin color. 

Complexion is really pale or rosy.

Silver jewelry and blue and green clothing complement your skin.

Your wrist veins are blue. 

Usually, this skin type burns very easily and turns red after or during sun exposure. 

Warm Tones:

This means you have peaches, reds, and purples mixed into your skin color.

Complexion is usually beige, golden, olive, and bronze.

Gold jewelry and orange-red and yellow clothing suite you.

Your wrist veins are more green and this skin type tans very easily.

Remember, if you’re noticing you’re in the middle for most, then you’re probably in the neutral group.
