Bijou Beauty: Red Lipstick Picks

Bijou Beauty: Red Lipstick Picks by The Petite Bijou - I'm a classic cat eye and red lip gal! See my best recommendations for red lipsticks that will work well for creating that classy and glamorous look! | The Petite Bijou

My signature look is a cat eye and red lips. What can I say? I’m a vintage inspired gal. A bold red lip is a great way to jazz up your daily look or remain simple and elegant for an event. It’s also what I get the most questions about, so I decided to share my top red lipstick picks with you!

Bijou Beauty: Red Lipstick Picks - The Petite Bijou

1, Bobbi Brown Lip Color Red 

2. NARS Lipstick Dressed to Kill

3. Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick The Red

A quick reference for skin tones: If you have fair skin, opt in for a red lipstick with an orange or neutral hue. If you have a olive skin. opt for something with a blue undertone and hue. If you have darker skin, try shades with plum and purple undertones. These are just guidelines and you can definitely experiment with any color! I have seen all these tones work well on every skin tone.
