The red lipstick, in all its shades, is the must of the summer 2022: here’s how to bring it to 40 years in an impeccable way.
Many women tend to think that, at 40, red lipstick is no longer a viable alternative too lightly. This is not the case at all, especially when summer arrives!
Most Italian women own fair complexion, brown hair and dark eyes. In winter, the contrast between these colors increases dramatically, as the skin is not tanned. At this time of the year, however, we are willing to throw ourselves into more challenging make-up, perhaps giving in to the temptation of an important eye make-up and a challenging lipstick.
In the summer, however, the general rule would impose a aim for more basic and lighter make-up, opting possibly for nude look, especially on the lips.
But the rules are meant to be broken! Especially in the summer of 2022, many beauty brands are focusing on red in all its shades.
How do you wear red lipstick in the summer after 40?
The red lipstick in winter has a lot of “snow white effect”, especially if we have very dark eyes and hair. For this reason, especially after 40, we often prefer to avoid wearing it. Fortunately, this problem does not arise in the summer.
In fact, when the skin tans, the contrast with the other intense colors inevitably fades. This means that red lipsticks look great on tanned skin, because they look less demanding and less flashy.
They therefore lend themselves perfectly to day and evening tricksdepending on the combination with a simple or more elaborate eye make-up.
Of course, the success of a summer make-up with red lipstick lies in theguess the right lipstick according to the color of your own incarnate but also al color of your own subdued.
This because color harmony is essential to feel comfortable with an intense color like red, which will always bring the focus to the lips.
The red best for those who tans little are the Coral red for a warm undertone it’s a raspberry red (therefore tending to purple) for the cold undertone.
With a skin that tans enough the recommended shades are the orange red for those with warm undertones and wine red if you have cold undertones.
In the end, who tans really a lot you can safely opt for a intense ruby red with a cool undertone or a coppery red if you have a warm undertone.
The importance of the make-up base
From the age of 35 onwards, the skin of the face begins to lose tone and fullness slightly. This means that the first expression lines begin to appear is that the pores of the skin begin to dilate.
