Glamorous, sexy and bold, red lips are a statement. But how to wear red lipstick that it doesn’t make your overall appearance too heavy or even tacky?
I stand for a red lip and trust me I have tried a lot of the high street brands, from Rimmel London to Revlon and none of them looked as glamorous as a luxury lipstick.
So, first step you guessed it: invest in a high end lipstick. I opted for the Allure Velvet Chanel Lipstick in shade 57. The way the lipstick shapes the lips and the perfection with which the formula stays on for a long time is what makes the difference for me. Why invest in 5 different lipsticks that will crease all the time and cost the same money in the end?
Creating a Classy Cat Eye
Getting to the eye make-up now that we have picked the right lipstick. I don’t recommend a smokey eye when wearing a red lip; not even a natural eyeshadow. Instead, create a classy cat eye in intense black. If the cat eye is not really your thing, add some subtle falsies to complement the lips.
The best hairstyles to wear with red lips
Just to set the context when I talk about hairstyle. I’m not the best at doing hair, the best things I can do are just basic: straight, curly with a wand and curly overnight with hair grips. Luckily, in this video my hair was naturally curled after washing as I was spending everyday at the sea side. When you’re wearing red lips any of these simple hairstyles work wonders; don’t need to braid it or put it up in a ponytail. You can even leave it natural, it will add that sexy hint to your look.
What to wear with red lips?
Your outfit really much depends on the context, so I am not going to recommend any outfits, but instead I will recommend a colour palette that perfectly complements that red. These are my personal favourites, but of course there are many others that you can wear. It’s important that you feel comfortable with your choice and ready to slay the day.
