The Ultimate Red Lip

Pop on a slick of red lipstick and your look is instantly transformed. From natural to effortlessly chic, a bold red lip makes a statement but it has to be the right shade, texture and just has to have staying power. Here is how I create my ultimate red lip:

Step 1:

Using your foundation brush just lightly go over your lips, this will give a great base. Then using red lip liner line your lips. I used MUA’s lip liner in red drama, I love these lip liners as they have a sharpener in the lid. If you want fuller looking lips slightly over line your lips, but be careful not to over exaggerate too much, as looking like a clown is never a good look! Lip liner is also great for stopping your lipstick bleeding.

Then pop on a slick of your favourite red shade, I am loving Laura Mercier’s lipstick in Hollywood right now.

Step 3:

This step is optional but if you want to make your lips appear fuller just dab on a small amount of white eye shadow or highlighting powder into the centre of the top and bottom lips.

Drugstore fave:

My fave red from the drugstore is Rimmel Apocalips, it is a gorgeous red shade and is quite easy to apply, it also gives the lips a lovely sheen.
