Shades of red lipstick feat. MEHRON night palette

Oh Hi there Christmas, you’re only 16 days away and that christmas party I’m attending, you’re only 5 days away and I still don’t know what I’m going to wear! This christmas party is red and green themed this year and I love a good themed party especially when everyone gets into the spirit and dresses up, it’s just fun!

Despite the fact that I do not own anything red or green and I never will wear those colours in the future, I have no clue what I am going wear, this weekend. Now I don’t want to be no killjoy (meaning spoil sport/the person that doesn’t want to dress up because they don’t have anything red or green) I’ve decided that not only am I going to wear my reindeer ears that are red and green and BROWN (so that’s an extra colour!) I am going to deck my body and accessorise with everything red or green I can possibly do. Including earrings, eye makeup, lipstick, shoes, nails, bracelets, rings, necklaces, flowers in my hair and whatever else I can do, in order to get away without having to actually wear red or green as a top or bottom or a dress.

Which got me thinking of the different shades of red lipsticks out there and which colour would best suit different skin tones, as I thought it would be a really cute idea if all the girls at the party wore red lipstick or possibly green, if they have any.

I got my Mehron palette about 2 years ago at IMATS and this baby is still going strong in my life. We have a love hate relationship, whilst I love this lipstick because it is highly pigmented and the colours are so strong and is definitely the reason why I still have it today, my lips always get crazy dry during use and the colour fades within a few hours especially if you’re eating or drinking but for those stand out pictures with amazing lips, I would definitely go to my mehron palette.

I really wanted to give a bit of insight on what shade of red goes well with a particular skin tone, but for me I honestly believe that for you to really know what looks good on you, is for you to try it out on yourself and have a friend there or one of the consultants to help you apply some red lipstick, so you can see first hand if it looks good or not. However,  I would just say make sure you take your complexion into account when choosing the right shade of red. For example, you can be fair skin with a pinkish complexion or fair skin with a yellowish complexion. Different shades of red have different undertones so they can either be a bit more orangey or warmer in undertone or more plum coloured or cooler in undertone.

From the Mehron palette, I particularly love wearing the colour ‘Wild Plum’ in this night palette and as for the reds, my favourite and go to red lip would have to be the shade ‘Valentine’.
