FAIR COMPLEXION
CHERRY

We're starting off on a bright note. Vibrant blue-based cherry reds contrast with pink undertones in fair skin to make lips pop, says makeup artist Susie Sobol. They also happen to make teeth look whiter. It's a youthful red shade, for sure, so keep the rest of your makeup clean and simple--a little pink blush, crisp black liner, and black mascara do the trick.

We rounded up the absolute best reds for every skin tone, so you can breeze through the sea of cherries, raspberries, and any other scarlet fruit.
