Classic Red Lip


Red lipstick is perhaps one of the sexiest looks you can create. Monroe was famous for the look, along with  more current celebrities such as Gwen Stefani and Angelina Jolie. Truth is, you don't need to be famous to wear red, YES, it's scary and bold and can take some getting used to, but red is a color that looks great on everyone as long as you pick the right tone! Tone is very important in picking a red, of course you can go for the fire engine classic red color, OR you can look at tones and see what goes best with your complexion. The other important thing to remember when considering a red lip is that you don't want to wear too much additional makeup. Usually a black liner is all that is needed to complete the classic look. Some people are more bold and attempt a light smokey eye, but it really will need some experimenting! This is the look I created using two red lipstick colors and a simple black liquid liner :

On my lips I used two Wet n' Wild colors : #928 Fierce Wild Shine Lip Lacquer and #514 Cherry Frost Silk Finish Lipstick. I used a Revlon liquid liner pen to create a thin line above my upper lash line. In order to keep the lipstick from bleeding you should dab a pit of translucent powder on top. The lip colors were between .99 and $2.99 and look and feel great! Let me know if you have any questions!
