Colour me red

When it comes to powerful statement colours red usually comes to mind for most people. Especially when it comes to our makeup, red is the colour we tend to gravitate towards when we want to look and feel extra special. A red lip can say a lot on it’s own and it easily make any outfit you throw together look effortless. I know that when I need a boost in mood and confidence I always opt for a red lip colour to change that all around.

It’s pretty much a jungle out there with so many different types of lip products to choose from. Most recently I’ve been all about liquid lipsticks so all three of the L.A. Girl Flat Finish Pigment Gloss, Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick, and especially the Milani Amore Matte Lip CrΓ¨me have been on high rotation. I love how I don’t have to worry so much about doing touch-ups or getting the colour smudged right after eating, drinking, or kissing (all together sounds pretty exciting if you ask me).

Since liquid lipsticks can be drying on your lips it’s good to give them a break to recuperate. If you’re like me and just cannot go bare, wearing more moisturizing formulas such as the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is a great option. Although it’s a matte finish it doesn’t show off any dry patches and is smudge-proof. For the days where I’m not feeling the matte look and am wanting a pop of shine and playful appeal, Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipstick is my weapon of choice. Since it is so moisturizing on the lips it’s very comfortable to wear throughout the day.

What is your go-to red lip colour? xo.
