Dark red looks great against all skin tones. It makes you stand out without coming across as attention-seeking. Keep to a glossy finish as it looks more sophisticated and edgy; a matte finish can make dark lips look drier and smaller. For a balanced look, keep the rest of your makeup simple – fill in your brows, give cheeks a soft flush and use a thin, soft black line to define your eyes.
