From high-end to high street, there is a perfect red lip out there for you to glam your way through this Christmas period, says Keyleigh Freeman
How to find your perfect shade?
Understanding the undertones to your skin is the best place to start. Look at the veins on your wrist; if they appear quite blue this indicates you have cool undertones, while if they appear more green this means you may have warmer undertones. And if you are seeing a little bit of both, this suggests you are neutral toned.
Now you have established your undertones, it’s time to pick your new addition.
For a cooler skin tone you can’t go wrong with opting for a deep, dark red with hues of blue.
