Lipstick-loving: Red

Next up in my lipstick-loving series is red. Red is probably the most classic of all lipstick shades and one that I personally love and wear quite often. I really like wearing red lips during the day - just putting on red lipstick makes me instantly feel like a real grown-up and (almost) ready to face the world.

Hairband: Miss Selfridge, Top: New Look

For daytime red lips I used my favourite red (Clinque's Red-y To Wear) with Avon's Sparkle Shine heart-shaped lipstick over the top. I used the Fabulous/Models Own duo eyeshadow and L'Oreal Superliner on my eyes for a simple smokey eye and used Natural Collection's bronzing pearls instead of blusher.

What's your favourite red lipstick?

  15. @ Lily - my hair has a slight natural wave but I usually twist it into a bun when it's almost dry and untwist it just before I leave the house to get this look - natural waves with no heat or styling products!

    @ Tabitha B - I really need to find my perfect Mac red lippie, will check out Ladybug next time.

    @ Smaira - I'll defintely take a look at that one, really like Rimmel lipsticks.

    @ Alyse - Mac's Russian Red seems very popular - I really need to try it!

    @ Hannah - I think there's a perfect red out there for everyone. When I first started wearing red lipstick I did feel a bit self conscious but you get used to it really fast!


    Thank you for all your comments and shade suggestions! x

  16. Red lipstick is a must-have for me, too! I only started wearing it last year and have since made it a staple in my wardrobe AND make-up bag.
