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!

well this is kind of a long story but ill try to make it as short as possible. so it all started about 4 years ago. this new boy came to my school. he was super cute and all the girls had a crush on him. at first i did not like him in a crush way but after a while feelings started growing. we started talking and he seemed to like me to. after elementary was done we ended up going to the same middle school.fast forward to this year me and him are in the same class. while i was in 6th grade i found my best friend me and her been bffs since then. she is also in the same class. ever since the begging of this year they grew really close. they are always talking and it seems like she like him and vice versa. every time they are together i feel this overwhelming since of jealousy and anger. like is she better than me or??? the thing that really gets to me is that she knew i liked him. omg i need advice like what should i do :mad
