Which red lipstick matches your skin tone!

Red lipsticks are always in fashion, especially for fall and winter. From warm tones to cool tones they come in many different varieties.

Cool red lipsticks are a pink/blue based colors while red warm lipsticks are orange-based red. I personally love cooler tones of red lipstick because they match my skin tone.

Let’s talk about red lipsticks matching your skin tone. For many women, they just want to find the perfect red lipstick to match their skin. Here’s a few TIPS:

For porcelain skin tones, red cool tones with a hint of plum look best. Their very ultra light skin tone will look good with a red cool tone lipstick and is a statement.

Image

For fair skin tones, a warm red lipstick looks good. It looks very bold and harmonious.

Image

For beige skin tones, a cool red lipstick will make it work. It will look daring and fierce.

Image

For olive skin tones, warm reds will look better with this skin tone especially with green undertones.

Image

For tanned skin tones, warm red lipsticks are the way to go for this gorgeous skin.

Image

And for darker skin tones, cool red lipsticks are so meant you!

Review: Clinique Acne Solutions Kit

Image

So I started using this kit because I have oily skin that causes pimples, especially in my forehead and chin. I’ve been suffering from acne through years and been treating¬† my face with several products. I bought this kit two weeks ago and from what the cosmetologist told me the product was made to control several acne plus good to all skin types.

Now on to the good vs bad review:

Good: It does control your acne and leaves your skin fresh.

Bad: After two weeks of using it and applying it in my entire face, my skin started to peel off. It’s only to use in the affected areas of your skin, NOT your entire face!

Good: My skin is super super oily but it has been getting better thanks to it.

Bad: The moisturizer is disappointing. Why? Well it should leave your skin smoother, but in the contrary it leaves your skin dry. That’s what I’m also looking for, for a smoother skin.

Good: Great price, but also if you travel a lot like I do then it’s the right choice for you.

This is the third week that I’m still using it and so far it has controlled my acne, but again it’s a product that should be only used in the affected areas, like in my situation “T” area. I have sensitive skin in my cheeks area, around my nose and neck. For that I will later on buy a moisturizer for day and night to apply in my cheeks, around nose and neck.

Do I recommend this? Yes, I do. But keep in mind again is to be only used in the areas where your acne is placed.
