Red lipstick usually depends on your skin’s undertone. Check the veins at the back of your wrist. If they are green, you have a warm undertone and if they are blue, you have a cool undertone. If you find both green and blue veins, you have a mixed undertone.

A warm tone is an indication to choose from red lipsticks that are in the orange-red tones. A blue undertone usually demands red lipsticks in more blue and purple-red tones. Red lipsticks for Indian skin tones can fall in all three types of undertones.
