Red lipstick - February 26th 2011, 02:15 PM

I really like red lipstick but I think it looks kind of stupid on me :/ I wear a "cool" red colour as I have a cool undertone but it still doesn't look right :/ any tips/ideas?

I have the same problem. Red looks stupid as on me. Maybe go to the counter and ask them to recommend a shade. Personally I wear lipstain instead, it lasts longer and pretty much does the same job just without being like caked on your lips ... i.e. you can't tell it's there.

I agree with the lipstain idea. I almost exclusively wear lipstains for my darker colors (such as red) with a bit of gloss on top. They don't get cakey and they don't get on your teeth, plus they're suuuper long lasting.

i've heard ELF lip stains are good, never tried them myself though.
also.. make sure you moisturise your lips before putting your lipstick on. either with lip balm or vaseline/moisturiser. or else it will look too dry.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

I don't like how I look in red lipstick either haha. Try asking someone who works at Sears or Sephora, and asking what shades would look good on you. They can also give you tips on how to keep it looking good for a long time. I personally wear lip shimmer or lip stain, I hate how lip gloss feels :P

No girl should wear red lipstick

it makes you look like a clown, and its hard to look at you with out bursting out laughing.

Actually, it all depends on the kind of red you use. Like, it depends on the undertones. I personally am afraid to wear darker lipstick, just cause it's so bold and different compared to the light pink lip stain I use by Hard Candy.
