12 scarlet lipsticks that suit all skin tones, according to the experts


A symbol of elegance as an object of fantasy, lipstick in its most dazzling shade can yet be frightening. So how not to be wrong? Expert advice.

It is one of the symbols of the Parisienne in the eyes of foreigners, signature of many women, and object of seduction.

Scarlet lipstick has lost none of its luster or power of attraction.

Even surviving the pandemic where he was shunned before winning back our lips and coloring our kisses.

"All women love this shade but they don't always dare to assume it because it sends them back to a given situation: there is of course seduction but it can also be linked to a memory or a family heirloom because it is a classic worn by the grandmother, for example.

And others still see the “red red” as vulgar today… But in any case, each one has a real story with it”, explains Patrick Lorentz, make-up artist for the Estée Lauder brand.

Healthy glow instantly

With the approach of Valentine's Day, which honors the color of love, these sticks that dress the lips are a highly desirable gift.

It remains to know which good red to choose, for you (or your other half in the second hypothesis).

Because the lipstick does not have only one face, declining in coral, in burgundy, playing on the tips of yellow, blue or even black to metamorphose.

And us with.

So how not to make a mistake and choose a red that will sublimate all skin tones?

The make-up artists of the different brands that we were able to interview are unanimous: red makes you look good.

And just for that, we should do some infidelity in Rosewood, safe bet for many women.

Sandrine Cano Bock, make-up artist for the Chanel house, draws a parallel with the lipstick that rises to our cheeks and adorns our lips when we walk in the mountains.

“It's a natural reaction but one that can be reproduced, in particular with a crushed raspberry tint but without too much blue.

I would not go for a red that is too frank or orange either, because the bet is more risky.

Charly Barbier, director of training at Nars, suggests a flamboyant red with a bright coral undertone to bring a


sunny to makeup and lots of light.

“This kind of red gives you a healthy glow instantly and makes you want spring very soon.”

Make your cheeks blush

A beautiful lipstick is not reserved for the sole function of beautifying the mouth.

And make-up artists use this iconic object to give the face a healthy glow by turning it into a blush like Sandrine Cano Bock.

Patrick Lorentz has even imagined a blush water by combining his red with the iconic Advanced Night Repair.

And for those who are not used to it, just mix it with your day cream or primer before tapping this blush cream on the cheekbones.

Another advantage of red?

It makes teeth whiter, as Patrick Lorentz or Charly Barbier remind us, “especially thanks to a few bluish pigments”.

The right texture

Beyond the hue, it's the texture that will come into play.

As Thom Walker, creative director of make-up at Givenchy, reminds us, “the latter counts just as much as the choice of shade”.

It is true that today between balms, glosses, mats, satins, velvets or even metallics, the rendering varies considerably.

“We can have very different finishes.

A balm that is a little burgundy works very well, for example, for someone looking for a natural effect.

A satin version will be softer when a matte one is more assumed”, analyzes Patrick Lorentz.

“And if you want to soften, you can bet on an imperfect mouth effect: you apply it with small pressures on all the lips and you just erase the edges with a flat brush.”

A vague option that Sandrine Cano Bock also retains:

"I would choose a matte texture because you can't go wrong, and I would apply it with my fingertips, patting on it to have that less sharp effect."

With the right color and the instructions, all you have to do is get started.
