Finding the perfect red lipstick was never going to be easy. But then Apple updated their emojis to be more reflective of racial diversity - and, whilst there are still only six hair and skin colour combinations out of the millions of possibilities, at least we now have a very simplistic frame of reference. For what? For working out which skintone you are so you can find your new favourite red lipstick, of course. The emoji skintones are modelled on the Fitzpatrick scale, a recognised standard used by dermatologists, so it's pretty much perfect for this purpose.
This is your emoji guide to the perfect red lip for your skintone. Genius, no?
Pick your Fitzpatrick-emoji-you and your choice of perfect red will be prescribed. Easy.
Fitzpatrick skin type 1: VERY FAIR
Look for blue-based and coral-toned reds.
Try: Lipstick Queen in Medieval, £22 and Guerlain Météorites Blossom Collection Rouge Automatique in Insolence, £25.
Why? These cooler tones compliment very fair skin without washing it out. Be brave!
