As we have approached the month of love, now is also the perfect time to spruce up your look. Nothing says passion and desire more than a red lip. Don’t believe that there isn’t a red out there for you either – there’s an abundance red tones to choose from depending on your style and comfort level. I’ve personally favourited and even until now continuously like to rock out to four styles of a red lip that are the most flattering and easiest for anyone to pull off.
1. Bold Red
Starting off with the most popular of them all is of course the ever so bold red lip. Although this is quite the most talked about red, not everyone feels they can effortlessly pull it off. If you aren’t totally comfortable in your own skin, a bold red can really play around with your confidence levels. That’s why when aiming for the right bold red that suits you best, test out in stores which one makes you feel amazing before buying and ever really committing to one. And if you’re up for the challenge – a red that’ll instantly turn heads is the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Red Carpet Red.
I could tell you a millions reasons to why I love this type of red, but I’ll keep it brief by saying that I personally find an orangey-red to be the most perfect red for everyday. Not only do your lips steal the show, but many of the orange based reds have a way of accenting your skin tone as well. If you’re complexion is looking a bit dull an orangey-red lip will quickly liven you up and give your skin a radiant glow. Everyone needs the Teeez Cosmetics Read My Lips Lipstick in Dare Devil (see me wearing it in this post).
3. Matte & Kissproof Red
If you’re highly involved in the makeup world you’d know that matte lipsticks were all the rage last year (2016 in case you’re reading this in the future…hello future person!). Tons of, if not all, makeup brands came out with their own line of liquid lipsticks. I’m a fan since they’re pretty much foolproof and resistant to coming off anytime sooner than expected. My ultimate favourite red liquid lipstick has been the Kylie Cosmetics Matte Lip Kit in Mary Jo K. It’s not only the most versatile red I’ve ever encountered, but it’s also the most universal red. Absolutely every skin colour and tone will look amazing in this one.
4. Shy Red
This is by far the most wearable red of them all. Not everyone is comfortable with wearing an, ‘in your face red’, so opting for hints of it just might be up your alley. The shy red still makes a fierce statement, yet in a very flirt and subtle way. There are many options such as tinted lip balms, lips stains, or my favourite – lipglosses. Arbonne Glossed Over Lip Gloss in Cardinal brings a lot of warmth to the lips, and since it has fine reflects of glitters it makes your lips look very plumped, soft, and luscious as well.
