I really have a hard time finding the perfect red lipstick for myself. I just feel I look so unnatural with it on. However when I put on my coral lipstick or dark pink, closer to red, I feel more like myself.
Great tips! Thank you for sharing! I'm off to check out your lipstick video. :)
The nude shadows from Benefit look good, I'm using an HD brows palette, but the lighter colour is a little too yellow for me.Red Lipstick is all about finding the right shade I think! I'm just in love with Besame Red Velvet or Cherry Red, I'm still looking for the perfect liner though.
Great video, hon! I'm a die hard fan of MAC's Russian Red (I could wax poetically about it until I was blue in the face), but it took me years to find that shade and many failed, or not-quite-as-good attempts in the process. Since hitting on it, it's been my go-to red (though I do occasionally wear another red from the brand Red Apple Lipstick, because it's a bit more sparkly and sheer) and likely always will be so long as they keep producing it. ♥ Jessica
Thank you, a good basis for vintage make-up. Do you have any tips for those of us that try to use organically based/ no chemical preservatives cosmetics? Have you found that a liquid, powder, or creme-powder foundation is best to match a vintage aesthetic? And any tips about finding the right shade of red for your complexion?
I really like Red Apple Lipstick. They have really great products. I don't really use any other organic/preservative free cosmetics. For foundation, you just want something that matches your skin and has a matte finish. I personally prefer liquid foundations because powders don't give me any coverage at all. I currently use Kat von D's Lock It Tattoo foundation.Retro Makeup by Lauren Rennells has a lot of great info on finding a good read for you (and on other make up too). I mostly found a good red for my by trial and error. A true red looks good on many complexions so that's a good place to start.
