Maria: I’ve always wanted to wear red lippy but am unsure what shade would suit me. Do you have any tips on how to choose the perfect shade for my skin tone? I use Clinique Superbalanced Makeup 28 Light.
As your foundation shade sounds like it’s fair and cool or neutral toned (according to http://Findation.com/), I’d recommend neutral or blue-toned reds.
