The right red lipstick
Wearing the right red shade for your skin tone is really important if you want to look more vampy than vampire.
As a basic rule, Kirsten Piggott says if your skin has yellowy or olive undertones then a fire engine red or brick red will work well with your complexion.
Pale skin with look better with cherry or pinky reds, whilst dark skin will look look stunning with deeper burgundy reds.
