Red lipstick never fails to be a sexy, bold way to liven up your ensemble for a night out, but it's not always easy to pull off. If you have a lot of pinkish tones in your skin or a blemish or two, those reds will be highlighted by the pop of color on your lips. Luckily, Glamour Magazine's beauty blog has a great solution.
When you have pink undertones, rosacea or acne, you need to tone down the color before wearing a red lipstick. Use a product like TRUE Cosmetics – Comforting Redness Reducer (Sensitive Skin) to help soothe redness and brighten up your complexion.
Next, use a perfectly-matched concealer to cover up blemishes and any ruddiness on your cheeks. CoverBlend – Multi Function Concealer SPF 15 will do the trick. You should also dab a bit near your lip line, reports the news source. This will ensure that there's a significant contrast between your skin tone and the lip color, so it will work to make your bold pout stand out – which is exactly what you're going for!
