How to choose the perfect red lipstick for your bridal makeup look?

Wearing red lipstick on your wedding day can be a default choice for many brides. While red is a universally flattering colour, it is essential to know which one suits your bridal makeup look. You don’t want to pick a red lipstick that washes you out or looks too bright.

Therefore, we’ve found the ultimate guide on choosing red lipstick shades for your bridal look based on your complexion and undertone.

How To Choose The Perfect Bridal Red Lipstick?

There are multiple hues and shades of red to choose from. Understanding which works for you can be a little tricky. First, you need to identify your complexion and undertone. Once that is clear, you can easily find which red lipstick shades would be a suitable pick for your bridal makeup look.

1.    Fair Complexion

●      Warm undertone

On your big day, enhance your warm undertone by going for true-reds or orange-red lipsticks. Try L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte Lipstick in the shade 505 – Attrape-Cœur. It’s one of the red Lancôme lipstick shades that’s neutral-toned and offers an intense colour with a matte finish.

●      Cool undertone

Cool-hued reds that have blue or pink as their base appear flattering on fair complexions. This includes berry or burgundy reds. They compliment the natural pink flush of the skin. Try L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick in the shade 397 –  Berry Noir. It is a medium-dark reddish-berry lip colour with slightly cooler undertones.

2.    Medium Complexion

●      Warm undertone

Right from bright orange to a stunning oxblood lip colour would complement your beautiful complexion. The L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink in the shade 196 – French Touch can be your perfect choice. This Lancôme lipstick is in a brighter, medium orange-red shade with moderate, warm undertones.

●      Cool undertone

Make a statement by pairing your bridal makeup look with a slightly darker red lipstick that has blue or pink undertones. Opt for L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick in the shade 132 – Caprice de Rouge. It’s a medium-dark, blue-based red with cooler undertones which look flawless on medium-brown skin tones.

3.    Deep Complexions

●      Warm undertone

Deeper complexions appear marvellous with intense reds. Colours like wine red, berry red or even brick red compliment your skin tone. It doesn’t look too loud or overwhelming. The L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte Lipstick in the shade 888 French Idol is a great choice. It is a beautiful deeper berry red Lancôme lipstick which has neutral-to-warm undertones.

●      Cool undertone

The perfect red lip for cool undertones with deeper complexions has to be dark reds with a blue base. Try maroons or wine reds as they look stunning on deeper skin tones. L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick in the shade 148 – Bisou-Bisou is the ideal pick. Wear this warm-toned, medium-red lipstick on your wedding day to capture your beau’s heart once again.
