Red Lippy Lips!

Hey ladies! Hope you are all well! Today I bring you my lips of the day! Daring red! I have always been a fan of the red lip but have only recently been brave enough to sport it myself! I always feel sophisticated and grown up and as if I've made an effort when I wear this lip! The images below take you through the 3 stages I do to achieve this look.

Step 1: Lipliner. I first lined the outside of the lips and then filled them in. I used Topshop's lipliner in Blaze. It's gorgeous and creamy and really easy to work with! You could stop after this step if you wanted a really matte finish.

Step 2: Lipstick. I used Barry M's lip paint in 121 Pillar Box Red. Again, a really nice product - creamy, doesn't have a horrible scent and stays on the lips for a reasonable amount of time.

Step 3: Gloss. I then just applied a clear gloss over the top for a more glossy finish! Any clear gloss will do but make sure you use a lip brush rather than the wand supplied to apply it or the gloss will turn red once you put the wand back! This step is obviously optional but I love the finish it leaves!





























What are your fave lip looks and products? Thank you for reading lovelies! xxx

  21. I'm not a weirdo, but you have such lovely shaped lips!
    I love orange and red lipstick at the moment too, but haven't ever tried it with a lip liner before. Think I may have to invest :)
