Hi, everyone, my name is Joi, makeup artist in New York, and today I'm gonna talk to you about the best shades of red lipstick for brown skin. So, I have my red lipstick and I have my lip brush, and pretty much just choosing a red lipstick for a brown skinned individual is just gonna be a matter of making sure that, for one, you wanna make sure that the red is not too pale, and then you wanna decide whether you would like to use a yellow based or a blue based red. So, for our model, today, we're going with a blue based red, and that actually tends to look pretty good on most skin tones, but you do wanna test it out ahead of time to make sure that whatever shade you're using is deep enough for you and doesn't cause you to look washed out in any way. Too much yellow in comparison to your skin tone is what sometimes gives the washed out or orange-y look. So, we're using a very rich blue toned red lipstick today. And red lipstick is kind of tough to keep neat sometimes, so if you need to, if you get out of line at the bottom, you can go back in with a Q-tip and clean along the edges. And another way to make sure that your'e doing this very neatly, is to hold your brush flat like this, pull it along the edge. So, just a couple of red lip tips. Okay, if you need to, if you feel like your lipstick tends to feather, which can happen with red lipstick sometimes, you can also use a liner. And that can be done before...filling in the entire lip, or you can do that after, just kind of going around the edges. And your red lip liner, because red is so rich, doesn't have to be exactly the same shade as your lipstick. In fact, if it is a bit of a different shade of red, it can just add a little bit of depth to your nice red lipstick look. So, just cleaning up along that edge a little bit, and there we go! Nice red lips! Hope you all enjoyed this, and again, my name is Joi. Bye!
