Here are the essential ways to wear a red lip to try and you should be able to find the perfect red lipstick for you!


The shades and textures of red lipsticks

Matte red lipsticks  gives you that refined urbane and classy look. They are suitable to wear on a long day at work or for a social event at night, making them perfect because they are the longest lasting kind of lipsticks and rarely rub off over time.


Glossy Red

Trying to achieve that luminous shiny look on your lips like Rita Dominic or Genevieve Nnaji? Glossy lips gives an extra sophisticated touch to your lips. But some, ladies do not like the glossy feeling, because of either they have an oily skin, which makes her entire face look oily or it smudges of her lips. You can wear a glossy red lipstick either as a stand-alone, or as a layer over a matte shade for extra long wear.




Lip stains are liquid lipstick/gloss mixture that stains your lips with a matte finish that can last for over 12 hours. Though they are still new to the modern world, they can be considered as an ultra-long wear alternative to the normal lipstick but they can be a bit difficult to remove. You can wear this anywhere.

I particularly love dark lipsticks, so I have a connection with this shade of red. It gives me that fierce sultry vampire-ish look, which also goes well with my skin tone. It is tricky here, because you don’t have to go heavy with your eye makeup. Dark red works for most skin tones and can be a safer option if a bright red feels to bold.


Tomato Red

I am not sure tomato red lipstick suits me well because I am light skinned, although some light-skinned ladies pull this look off, I think it is just not for me, but in my opinion, this is more suitable for a  darker shade person You can wear this on the weekends, because it is too loud for a cooperate job environment or when you have a photo shoot.
