There’s nothing that balances sophistication and sex appeal quite like a red lip. It’s a classic that can be worn year-round and always exudes timeless style and confidence. You can be wearing the most basic of outfits and a red lip immediately transforms the entire thing. (Think of Gwen Stefani—she rocks a red lip with sweat pants and looks incredible!) Whether you’re going for a bold dramatic look or simply looking to test the waters with a tint, sporting a red lip is always on trend.
Luckily my longtime friend and makeup guru Monika Blunder knows some red-hot (I couldn’t resist!) tricks of the trade. Check out this video where she demonstrates how to create 3 perfect red lip looks:
1. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella
2. NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Moscow
3. Tom Ford Lip Color in Scarlet Rouge
