Red lipstick is one of the hallmarks of classic femininity and glamour. It's a look that screams "Look at me!" and makes you feel like a movie star. Think Marilyn Monroe, Betty Boop and any classic pin-up girl. Think Dita von Teese, Madonna, Marlene Dietrich. Whichever way you choose to wear the shade, the key with red lipstick is to find your perfect match. Red lipstick is a classic colour but the several hues say different things about you.
Bright red screams old Hollywood glamour. Think Monroe, think bombshell, think very sexy.
Dark burgundy red is a fashionista shade. It's bang on trend with this year's modern gothic look and looks good no matter what your skin tone.
Blue red is very vampiric and strong. Think pale skin, bright eyes and bold, sexy lips.
Orange red this shade of red tends to look best when you have olive skin but also works well if you're looking for a lighthearted red lipstick look. Think Taylor Swift.
For bright red choose Rimmel Kate Lipstick . It's the brightest strongest red you'll find and suits pretty much all skin tones. It also makes a pretty bold statement so wear it wisely.
For a deep burgundy red you can't go wrong with Nars Satin Finish Lipstick in Afghan Red . Aside from being a perfect red with deep dark undertones, the satin finish leaves lips looking dramatic but glossy.
For a blue red you can't go wrong with a MAC red lipstick. Bold, strong colors are what made MAC a cult brand, which is why we love, love, love MAC's Russian Red Lipstick. It's a deep matte cold red color.
For a luxe orange red we love YSL's Rouge Pur Couture. This has a great depth of colour for an orange red, and gives a medium to full coverage with a satin finish for up to 6 hours.
Enjoy and be inspired!
