This is what’s up for fall … according to industry veteran and creative advisor for Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup … Pat McGraath 🙂 Check out her Q&A:

How do you find the perfect red lip color for your skin tone?
The perfect red lipstick is all about undertones: those with an olive/yellow (warm) undertone to their skin should choose warmer orange-red lipsticks for the most flattering look, whereas women with pink/red (cool) undertones look best in cool, blue red shades.

Are there are guidelines to be aware of before trying out a hundred shades?
Makeup is all about having fun! With lipsticks it is all about experimentation, so try pale shades, brights and extreme darks until you find one that you love. If you’re trying multiple shades one after the other, remember to remove the lipstick completely before trying another one on – you want to see that shade in its truest form, not with a hint of the previous shades coming through!

How can we make a matte lip look last—without getting super dry?
The special formulation of Dolce & Gabbana’s Passion Duo range helps retain moisture in the lips and contains over 50% emollients, which makes it luxuriously moisturizing, perfect for lips affected by either cold or dry heat.

Another trick is to put the tiniest amount of foundation on your lips as a base before the lipstick, this helps your lip color to last longer and also helps prevent dryness.
