Look drop-dead in orangey-red!

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

“In my opinion, Lady Danger by MAC is one of the best red lipsticks ever invented. It’s a kick-ass color with a killer texture. Pocket it!” LMM, 2011.

Lady Danger Lipstick by MAC

Red lips are key again this season. Tailor the trend to your taste. Wear it sheer, or let your pout SHOUT. The choice is yours.

To create impact, use contrasting shades and textures. In this look, I paired an earthy eye with a loud lip, and used a range of finishes from matte to metallic. (more…)

Red lipstick: The ultimate power pout!

Bright red lipstick

“My favorite look of the season is a red lip paired with a nude face, as seen on the runway in the Yves Saint Laurent and House of Holland shows. To get the look, team groomed brows with a wash of light-brown matte eyeshadow and a slick of black mascara. Add a touch of beige to the cheekbones, and to create a bold lip, paint on a rich creamy red lipstick.”

Rock out in red lips!

To achieve perfect red smackers:

1). Start by exfoliating your lips to remove any dry, flaky skin.

Makeup artist tip: Want a quick and easy exfoliation technique? Rub a dry, soft-bristled baby’s toothbrush over your lips.

2). To hydrate your lips, apply a good lip balm (I love The Lip Balm by Crème De La Mer and the Carmex range).

Makeup artist tip: Ensure you tissue off any excess lip balm before you apply your lipliner. If you don’t, your lipliner is likely to smear everywhere! (more…)
