    Hello, can anyone help me translate "vermilion lip" into Spanish? Thank you very much!

    The term I have seen used is "vermilion border" referring to the border between the pink part of the lip and the flesh-colored part. If you will supply some context so that I can be sure to be accurate, I will try to translate.

    "Labio rojo," "labio bermellón," o simplemente "bermellón." Creo que lo más común es "bermellón," pero te recomiendo que lo confirmes con otras referencias.
