Carly’s Top Tip: Choosing your Perfect Red

If you have cool tone skin (i.e can you see you veins in your wrist?) opt for a berry red, as the blue tones in these shades pay you all the compliments. Can’t see the veins? You’re the owner of a warm skin tone! You should go for a coral or orangey red to flatter your face.
