Lipstick colors for Gingers?
I'm looking for a hot shade of lipstick to wear in the summer, but I'm having difficulty chosing one to fit me..I have deep red hair, kind of an auburn..and I have pale skin (but not like marshmallow pale..).
Hi infinite3 - I'm also a redhead but I have a snow-white complexion and I usually favor pinks and corals. I think you can do almost anything as long as it's not too extreme. Anything that's too orange or brown usually doesn't work for me and reds are very difficult to nail just right.
I think the finish of the lipstick is a bigger issue than the actual color. Matte shades seem to be the biggest problem for me and for many redheads that I see in person and on TV, in movies and magazines. I think if you go with something glossier or with a nice sheen you'll find the most success, some cremes can also be iffy.
So keep your eyes peeled for other redheads, see what they're wearing and learn from THEIR mistakes. Also, there is a company called JFR - Just For Redheads (.com) You can check out there website and get some ideas. I'd love it if you let me know how you make out with this. Best of luck and hope to hear from you.
