Your fair skin and red hair often make you the center of attention, and when you wear the right shade lipstick for your skin tone, it's hard for people to take their eyes off of you. The key is donning the correct shade. Finding a color that doesn't clash with your hair and make your fair skin look pasty or washed out is often difficult. But once you get the right shade going, your pout will surely be on the mind of everyone in the room.


Some fair-skinned redheads often shy away from wearing a pink lip as they think it might look funky with their crimson mane. This is far from the case as long as you wear the right shade. Light pinks and those that contain a hint of coral look stunning against your pale skin and bright mane. This delicate color also complements any pink undertones you might have in your skin.


Oh yes, this bright and cheerful color looks totally glamorous and smokin' on a flame-haired fox. The sexy pop of color makes your lips stand out and even makes your teeth look whiter. It also complements your fair skin and gets it glowing. With a dramatic pout like this, however, you want to take it easy on the rest of your makeup, as you can look too done up.


If you want your mouth to look smokin' but don't want too much color, go with a beige. This natural hue adds just the right amount of color to your pout without going overboard. Plus its warm tones typically go well with your rich hair and delicate skin color. This type of lipstick can be worn for everyday causal looks, as well as glamming it up. Just be sure to wear a heavy eye if you're wearing this shade at night.


Peach that contains hints of coral looks simply gorgeous against your complexion and fiery hair. It creates a warm glow on your skin and complements the warmth of your hair. Gloss, stain and lipstick of this color all look incredible with your skin tone and hair and should be worn often.
