What Red Lipstick Shade Is Right For Me?

At Revolution, we have a plethora of lipsticks. Whether you opt for gloss, satin or matte finishes, we have the best red lipsticks to match your vibe.

The key the finding the right shade is to know your skin tone.

Are you fair, medium or dark?

Then, consider your undertone. Are you cool (pink-toned), warm (yellow-toned) or neutral?

Expert tip: An easy tip to correctly identify if the shade is right for you is to apply the red lipstick to the back of your wrist. This will give you the truest representation of your skin tone and indicate how the color will look on the lips.

Once you’ve figured this out, it’s time for the fun part. Follow on as we reveal what the best red lipstick is for you!

Best Red Lipstick For Fair Skin

For fair skin, there are lots of red shades that can beautifully complement your rosey-toned skin and will make your makeup pop!

Usually, fair skin has cool undertones. These undertones work perfectly with coral reds, pink hues and raspberry reds. Anything fresh, vibrant, and that doesn’t look overpowering is a go!

On that note, we recommend the Makeup Revolution x Sebile Matte Liquid Lipstick in shade ‘Get Noticed’. This red lipstick is a gorgeous muted coral – a perfect addition to your makeup bag. Versatility is key and this coral red lipstick can easily be taken from day to night.

Expert Tip: Coral red lipsticks look sumptuous when accompanied with a dose of bronzer and a kiss of blush on the cheeks.

Other reds that look amazing on fair skin are raspberry reds, with deep pink undertones which bring a soft statement to your makeup look. These are the perfect way to give you a rich color without seeming too overpowering against the skin.

The fun, flirty vibrance of Revolution Pro Hyrda Matte Liquid Lipstick in shades ‘Sphinx’ or ‘Glacier’ or the Makeup Revolution x Sebile Matte Liquid Lipstick in shade ‘Venus Kiss’ are the perfect rouge pink red lipsticks to compliment your cool undertones.

If you aren’t mates with the mattes, we have a satin lip option for those looking for a softer finish. The Revolution Satin Kiss Lipstick in shade ‘Rose’ is great evening option for partying with friends, especially as we move into the festive season.

PSA: These shades work wonders when making your teeth look super white, you can’t go wrong!

Best Red Lipsticks For Medium Skin

For medium skin tones with warm undertones, strong reds are the way forward.

Imagine that classic, cherry red lip – this is the one for you! Strong reds accentuate those gorgeous warm tones, and boost brightness in the skin.

One of our faves is the Revolution Satin Kiss Lipstick in shade ‘Decadence Red’. Our satin red lipsticks offer that decadent look you’ve been dreaming of, coating the lips with a beautiful sheen, perfect for a sleek, glam vibe.

We also recommend orange reds for medium tones. The I Heart Revolution Party Pets Lip Gloss in shade ‘Let’s Pawty’, gives a gorgeous, glossy finish for that ultimate, healthy glow that others envy.

How to wear this red lipstick: Perfect for lighter makeup days, or a kiss of color if you have gone for a bold eye look.

Don’t worry if you’ve got cool undertones, we’ve definitely not forgotten about you!

A beautiful blue red will be your best friend. The Makeup Revolution Satin Kiss Lipstick in shade ‘Ruby’, is the rich, sultry lip you need in your life.

Its depth gives the perfect vibe for date night and will be your go-to for a festive party (it’s never too soon to prepare!).


Best Red Lipsticks For Dark Skin

For dark skin, your perfect pairing is found in plum or brick-red shades that provide depth and drama. The Revolution Satin Kiss Lipstick in shade ‘Vampire’ is a dark red lipstick that adds that element of glitz and glamour. Ideal in a satin finish too, to offer a comfortable finish that’s irresistible and indulgent to that irresistible indulgence.

Wine reds are also a must for deeper skin tones, again highlighting the warmth in the skin. The Revolution Satin Kiss Lipstick in shade ‘Ruby Red’ is made to complement caramel tones. The satin finish is a no-brainer to add volume and dimension.

However, if you’re a fan of a glossy lip, the Makeup Revolution Pout Bomb Plumping Gloss in shade ‘Juicy Red’ is a great alternative for a sheer finish.

For a super juicy look, take it to the next level by layering the gloss on top of another red lipstick. I mean who doesn’t love that boost a red lip gives you?

If you want to experiment with various shades of red lipstick, why not try the Revolution Pro Lipstick Collection – Reds. With a collection of five bright and beautiful red lipsticks, there’s a shade for every occasion!

Trying them out for yourself means you can choose your own style that suits you!


How to Apply Red Lipstick

After that hard work discovering our best red lipstick shades, the final step is perfecting the application. This is crucial to living your best red lip life!

Many shy away from a red lip for this very reason, worrying about messy smudges, wobbly lines or color bleeding. But really, it’s as simple as investing in the right lip liner and spending that extra couple of minutes to get your lips outlined well!

We recommend going for a direct match to your red lip to keep it bold and clean, how could we not recommend the Makeup Revolution Satin Kiss Lipliners?

They truly are the best tool for the job. Their silky-smooth consistency helps you glide the color across the lip with ease, providing flawless, fuss-free lines.

Be sure to choose a darker shade for a more vampy, old-school vibe. These creamy liners will blend seamlessly with any red lipstick!

And there you have it, these are our best red lipsticks and we can’t wait to see you rocking your perfect match throughout the winter party seasons!
