A Red Lip Tale.

It was one of those days where I was playing with my makeup, specially with the stuff which I rarely wear, yet they are there in my collection. Not that I don’t like them, because I have way too much of it that I can share with 10 other ladies and yet have enough to suffice for the rest of my life . Well believe it or not, there are weirdo’s like me.

Yes its definitely a money burner in my case, yet I just can’t stop buying it.

Definitely not the point that I’m trying to make here. What I’m trying to get at, is how I discovered the perfect red lipstick shade for my skin tone.

Having wheat-ish complexion with olive undertones and pigmented lips, a true red or a bright red lip won’t be the thing for me, nor a deep maroon red, that would be too aunty like.

So while playing with my makeup I mixed two lipstick accidentally and as if a red lipstick fairy godmother was dancing by, and twisted her wand and sprinkled on me the perfect red color.

Here are those two lipsticks which I mixed.

Mac’s Limited edition in Ruby(Amplified) & Rimmel’s lasting finish by Kate in no. 107 (don’t get me wrong, both of them on their own look stunning too)

Here are the swatches of the lipsticks :

Thank you for sticking by with me with my endless blabber, hope you enjoyed this post. Don’t forget to share your favourite red lipstick or lipstick combination 🙂

Tip : When applying a dark lipstick specially red, make sure to first use a lip-liner, and in case if you don’t have one, you can always use a brush, that way it won’t bleed out of lines and stays put. And we all know the trick about blotting our lips and applying a little powder on top for a lasting colour. Just incase you don’t  (click here).
