You’re beautiful and confident and can pull off amazing red lips. The experts at InStyle have helped Brideside to uncover the perfect lip shades for a few skin tones.

For those of you with a fair complexion, look for more blue-based reds like Feel free to create thick dramatic lines with your eyeliner and mascara, but use sheer eyeshadow palettes so not to over do it.

If your skin is more olive like Minka Kelly’s, you can pull off just about any lip shade of red because of the warm colors in your skin. Take a look at Nars’ Heat Wave, but avoid too much bronzer or it may [quite literally] overshadow your look. To complement darker skin tones, you have a host of options. To highlight brown tones, chose red lipstick with a more brown base. If you have more blue like Jennifer Hudson, take a look at more ruby colors with splashes of pink likeChanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet in La Fascinante. But bottom line, keep the eyes simply highlighted.

If we haven’t sufficiently convinced you that there is a shade for you, try a little tinted red gloss like YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in Orange de Chine. Now pucker up and have the time of your life.
