On Saturday night Adriana Lima proved one of the oldest beauty rules in the book right – you can do no wrong when wearing a red lippy. The stunning supermodel looked every bit flawless sporting a classic matte red shade and Hollywood waves, while attending a dinner at the White House.
If you aren’t usually one to rock a red lippy, give it a go! It will work wonders for any complexion, you just need to know which is the best red lipstick for your skin tone. Matte lipsticks tend to make your lips look fuller, so you’ll want to wear these if you’re not blessed with a plump pout.
For fairer complexions a deeper, richer shade of red will warm up your skin tone and give you that classic English rose look. We love Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution in red Carpet Red, £23, the perfect shade i you’re looking to up the glamour.
If you are lucky enough to have a gorgeous golden complexion like Adriana, wear MAC’s Lipstick in Ruby Woo, £15.50, a bright matte fiery red with blue undertones that will help counteract sallowness and perk up your skin.
Darker skin tones can get away with a serious bold lip hit – the brighter the better! Opt for punchy reds with orange undertones like Topshop’s Lips in Headrush, £8, but rememberr to use a liner in a similar shade to make sure your power pout stays put!
