Red lipstick is universal for classic and sophisticated style. It is a sign of femininity and good health. And it is a trademark of old-school Hollywood glamour (Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe). Today, red lipstick is still walking the Red Carpet on the lips of Gwen Stefani, Alison Goldfrapp, and Scarlett Johansson. The right shade of red can complete your outfit, while the wrong shade can have you rivaling the best of the drag queens. Red lips can be a challenge to pull off, but if done correctly, they make a dramatic and romantic statement. But have no fear, listed below are the rules to How to get Hollywood Red Lips.

When selecting a shade, consider your skin tone. Are you a warm or a cool red? If your skin has a pink undertone, select a red that has a pink base to it. However, if you are more on the warm yellow tone, select a red with a golden or tawny base. For the ladies who are on the paler/pinker side, select a lipstick that contains a hint of blue. For Asian ladies, a berry tone red (plum, raspberry, and cherry) are best. If you are unsure or having difficulty determining your shade, stick to a true primary red, the color of a bright red tomato or "brick" red.
