Follow these classic guidelines to find the perfect red for your kisser:

1. Medium to deep olive-toned skin looks great with warmer reds; look for shades with a hint of tomato and orange in them. Try Julie Hewett Noir Lipstick in Belle Noir.

2. Fairer skin tones are flattered by more blue-based reds, like cherry and strawberry tones. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Cherries in the Snow is gorgeous.

How to paint the perfect pout:

1. Prepare lips for super rich pigment by exfoliating with a lip scrub or a soft toothbrush.

2. Apply a light lip balm base; blot off excess with a tissue.

3. No need for lip pencils this spring. The look is all about the painted-on look so it is time to invest in a great stiff lip brush; try Makeup For Ever lip brush number 3N.

4. Work a small amount of lipstick from the center of the lips and use small precise strokes to create the perfect edges.

5. Dust a small amount of translucent face powder with a large fluffy brush to keep lines from bleeding and voilà!
