Ruby red

What colors do you mix to get that kind of ruby red that real newborns have? I struggle like there’s no tomorrow with this color. Sigh.

Editing to add that I mean how to get this color for newborn lips.

Can you post an example of the color you’re after?

I know what you mean. I have been wondering about the same thing. I was wondering if adding a little black to your red color mix would bring the shade down to a darker less warm red that might work?


I’m not sure why, but I initially read this post as looking for mixing colors for hair. Skin makes a ton of sense though, and I’ve often wondered what colors to use for that just born look as well.


Sorry, I need to clarify, I forgot to say that I was looking for the ruby red color for lips. Was tired when I posted that. I mean for lips.
