GET THE LOOK: The key to wearing red lipstick is finding the right red. Try this quick test: If the veins on the underside of your wrist appear green, you probably have warm skin tones and should try a an orange-based hue. Blue veins generally indicate cooler tones, so opt for a shade with a blueish tint.
INSIDER TRICK: Still timid to try bold red? Try putting the lipstick on your finger, then blot it on top of balm-coated lips to create a sheer stain.
