What shade of red lipstick goes best with my skin tone?

I've always wanted to wear red lipstick but I don't know what shade to wear without looking weird, I have sort of an olive skin tone. But I go out a lot so it would also help if i would know what kind of shades would go well if my skin got darker. Help, please and thank you.

A warm shade of red (think orange-red) will look more natural and harmonious with your skintone. Try Korres Mango Butter Lipsticks in Coral. It's a sheer orange-red that's and great "beginner" red shade.

 

But you can also pull of a deeper blue-based red. This will make more of a statement and look more purposeful. Try Urban Decay in F-Bomb (the new Revolution lipstick or the supper-staurated lip color)

 

These shades should still work even if you got a little darker.
