A classic red lipstick is theoretically easy to find. Many of our favourite makeup brands carry gorgeous red lipsticks. The issue arises in finding one that feels comfortable on the lips, lasts without smudging or feathering, and complements our skin tone.
Asian skin tones typically look best with warm-toned shades of red or lipsticks with a little more orange in them. That doesn’t mean all the cool red lipsticks are off the table. We’ve rounded up a selection of classic red shades from our favourite lip collections that are perfect for a red lip this Chinese New Year.
