Yesterday I shared my favorite cool toned/blue-based MAC reds, and today here’s three warm toned MAC reds you should try.
While MAC certainly has more than three orange-based and warm toned reds, I only have these three in my personal stash. Why? Because I have cool undertones and these type of reds tend to not flatter me but find these particular lipsticks to be more workable than others.
So Chaud: This is a gorgeous bright orange-red perfect for summer. Even though it’s a matte it applies surprisingly creamy and doesn’t feel dry like mattes can tend to be. You can tone the color down slightly with a darker lip pencil like MAC Chestnut or even Nightmoth.
Lady Danger: Also an intense summer-perfect orange-red. It’s slightly darker than So Chaud and is also surprisingly creamy for being a matte.
Chili: This is darker and more subtle in color but still quite the conversation maker. Again another matte that has a slightly creamy texture.
So who’s a good candidate for warm toned red lip color? Well for one anyone who has warm undertones or whose foundation match at MAC is an “NC” then these are colors you should reach for first. But even if that’s not you, don’t rule them out just yet. Sometimes those with neutral and sometimes even cool undertones can pull them off—just try them on and take a good look. If it looks like the lipstick is wearing you instead of the opposite, it’s not your shade.
