How to choose your best red shade for your big day!
If you always wanted to wear red lips but don't know which shade to wear, Eszter gave us a few of her personal tips how to find and maintain your perfect red lip.
"The easiest way to pick the right colour for you by narrowing down the skin tone, the hair, and eye colour.
Roll up your sleeves up and look at the veins underside of your wrist. Are they purple, green, blue or olive? If they look more blue and purple, you likely have cool undertones. If the veins look blue-green, you’re neutral. The green and olive veins on your wrist means you have warm undertone.
Also your natural eye and hair colours can help figure out your colouring. Traditionally, cool people have eyes that are deep brown, black-brown, grey blue, dark blue or hazel. On the contrary, warm-toned women usually have golden brown, green, turquoise or hazel with gold or brown flecks eyes with strawberry blond, red, brown, or black hair. Neutral undertone typically has hair and eye colours that have a mix of warm and cool tones. Typical eye colours are mixed, such as blue-green eyes with hints of copper, or eyes that can go from a warm-green to a cool blue.
Do you look better in silver or gold? Personal preferences aside, cool undertones tend to be flattered by silver or platinum, those with warm undertones look better in gold-toned jewellery. Neutral skin tones look equally great in both.
I have learned a few tricks that not only help maximize lipstick’s longevity, but also with making it transfer-proof.
Thin lips: choose the sheered finish and lighter red as it may make your lips appear smaller.
Large lips: choose the darker and matt finished colours. It plays down the size and flatters and compliments also.
Apply and maintain the perfect lipstick, to last you all day long:
Exfoliate your lips with either a home-made lip scrub (1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 squirt of honey, 1 drop of vanilla) or Lush Honey Lip Scrub.
Use the matching lip liner to stop bleeding. Fill in with colour.
Blot down with tissue, then powder entire area (Kat Von D – ‘Lock-It’ setting powder £22)
Add another layer of lipstick, than repeat the process
Tips: Drink plenty of water in the morning of your wedding. Check you have no lipstick marks on your teeth.
Enjoy wearing your red lipstick on your wedding day!
