Can you pull off a red lipstick? Err yes! There’s a shade for everyone, whether you want a classic red, dark burgundy or bright orange.
I personally love a red lip, makes even the most tired mum face more awake and ready, no?
Here’s some of my red lip rules to stick by and some of my favourite shades-
- Exfoliate your lips first- Perfect base makes for easier application
- Lip balm- After exfoliating smooth over some lip balm to create a smooth layer ready for colour
- Lip liner- Bit more time consuming but it makes a perfect outline to just fill in with your lip colour. It makes your lip colour last so much longer as well!
- Always take your colour out with you! No matter how long lasting your lipstick is, if you’re out drinking and eating you’ll always have to top up. Just make sure you’ve got in with you just in case.
