What lipstick Colour is Best?

Many women match their lipstick to the colour of the outfit they are wearing. This is wrong!

The absolute first criteria is to choose a colour that makes your teeth look white. Some colors make your teeth look off-white or even yellow.

Not a good look!

Whether it be brown or hot pink, first ensure the chosen colour makes your teeth look as white as they can be, then match to your outfit for the look you want.

Talking about colours, what is the best red lipstick? 

This could be tricky. Red ranges from elegant to very sexy. But beware, more than any other colour, red is prone to the infamous 'feathering effect'. Very aging and most unattractive. Lip liner will help diminish this effect.
