Red-Lipped Celebrities

Glamorous celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Scarlett Johansson and Christina Aguilera can rock their red lipstick on the red carpet, but you can pull it off everywhere else! Find out how to apply and wear red lipstick without looking like a clown!

Red Lipstick - Which Hue Are You?

The first thing you've got to figure out is if you're cool or warm, and it has nothing to do with your personality or popularity - it's about your skintone! Cool complexions are pale with pink undertones and tend to burn in the sun, whereas warm complexions have yellow, olive and darker undertones or tan easier in the sun.

  • If you have a cool complexion, choose cooler reds like a true red or a pinkish red.
  • If you have a warm complexion, choose warmer reds with a brown base, like a brick or rusty red.

Red Lipstick - How to Apply

A matte red can make you look too done-up, so go for a glossier red instead. Line and fill in your lips with a lip liner that closely matches your natural lip color. Apply lipstick, blot with a tissue and lightly dust your lips with powder to give it extra-staying power. Since red lips are dramatic, you should keep the rest of your face bare or else you'll look like you belong in the circus!

Red Lipstick - Red-Hot Tips

  • If your teeth are yellow, wearing a red shade with blue undertones will help make your pearly whites look a little more pearly and white.
  • Pair your red lips with either red nails or a red accessory, like a bag, belt or shoes.
  • The secret to wearing red lipstick is feeling comfortable. All it takes is confidence to back it up, so stand up straight and smile!

B-who-u-r-and-SING
My best friend and I were really close before and hung out all the time, we were both in musicals and both got smaller parts, and if one of us got a bigger part, it was her. Then she took voice lessons with an amazing voice teacher and got a little better, she took lessons for about two weeks and then I decided to take lessons too. After about three weeks people were saying that I was an amazing singer and all of the sudden my maybe-best-friend hardly talks to me. She always seems really sad. (Keep in mind that my friend can't sing well) I don't know if she is jealous or what, and please don't think that i'm conceited by thinking she might be jealous I am just wondering. Please help!

I almost always get along with my cousin but sometimes I burst. my grandma always somehow finds out what I want and gives it my cousin and if my parents are around she treats us equally and that is another thing that makes me mad is she acts like the best grandma in front of my parents but the second they are gone she is a different person
