This week at Latina.com, we're celebrating all of our beautiful different skin tones. Be sure to check in every day for a new beauty tip specifically tailored for our Afro-Latina chicas! First up? Red Lips...

Yes, anyone can wear red. But, in my humble opinion, no one pulls off a classic crimson better than a woman with darker skin and warm golden undertones. Just check out how amazing the shade looks on Lauren Velez! To get the look, swipe on a pigmented lipstick, like Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Ultra, $30, saks.com, then define lips with a red lip liner (like Revlon Color Stay Lipliner in Red, $8, cvs.com).

Not feeling fire engine red? Follow Zoe Saldana's example and swipe on a blue-based berry lipstick; the dominicana proves the tone is just as flattering. Try Clinique Long Last Lipstick in Merlot, $14.50, clinique.com.
