Red lips in every possible hue is all the rage for Fall Winter 15, so it’s no surprise that we’re forming a red lipstick army on our vanity table.

But before you sweep up every reds on the shelves, it’s important to know which shades look flattering on you.

Here’s a cheat sheet to get you started.

If you’re fair
Go for: Blue-toned reds, cranberry, wine, orange-red
Fair with pink base: Orange-red
Fair with yellow base: Brick red

If you have medium complexion
Go for: Orange-reds, red-based purples

If you have an olive skin tone
Go for: Orange-red, mauve-berry red, deep purple-based reds

If you’re dark
Go for: Deep reds with blue undertones, pink-hued reds

Can’t tell your warms from your cools? Then just go for a neutral red, which loves all skin colours!
