The holiday season is the perfect time to sport bold, red lips. Red lipstick makes such a statement and it's the easiest and quickest way to perfectly pull your look together. Just check out how fab Zoe Saldana looked at the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards Nominations Press Conference in West Hollywood, California.

This deep rich shade of red totally flatters the Dominican and Puerto Rican actress's beautiful dark skin. The trick to nailing this classic look is finding a shade that complements your skin tone. Believe me chicas, everyone can wear red lipstick! Check out a few of my recommendations below and find out which red is right for you!

Red lipsticks with a tint of berry tend to complement the cool undertones found in most fair complexions. Try Rimmel Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick in Temptation ($7)

Like olive skin, medium tan complexions (like mine) look great with a red lipstick that brings out the skin’s warm undertones. Look for an orangey-red lipstick, like Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in 35 Rouge Vernis ($32)

For dark skin tones like Zoe Saldana’s or darker, try a bright orangey red lipstick like Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Coromandel ($34) if your undertones are warm, or go for a deep burgundy red like the Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in Hot Tango ($12) pictured here,  if your undertones are cool.
