How To Create The Perfect Red Lip

Although I like to don a nude lip on a regular basis, during the Autumn and Winter months I tend to sway more towards a red lip if I'm looking to spice up a neutral makeup look. Today, I thought I would give you the run down of which products I use to create the perfect red lip. 

L I P  L I N E R | After searching for a classic red lip liner I stumbled across MAC's Cherry. It quickly became a staple for when I wanted to define my lips, giving the illusion of a fuller look, yet it can also be used to create a wearable matte hue that lasts all day long. The shade is versatile and can be paired with a variety of red toned products. 

L I P S T I C K | Next up is lipstick and narrowing down this category was difficult as there are so many red hues that I like to wear on a daily basis. One that stood out above the rest was MAC's Ruby Woo. Although the extremely matte formula can be drying on the lips, I find that after a quick scrub of Lush Santa Scrub and a swipe of Nuxe Reve De Miel it sits perfectly on the lips and doesn't budge at all. The vivid shade is versatile and although it's bold, I still find it is suitable for daily wear. 

L I Q U I D  L I P S T I C K | The Velvet Matte Creams from H&M are currently my new obsession and the shade Le Beau Monde, a vivid matte red, looks perfect paired with any neutral eye look. This liquid lipstick provides a long lasting wash of colour that stains the lips for several hours. 

L I P  P E N C I L | If you're looking for a new addition to your red collection, then Nars Cruella is your best bet. The deep scarlet-red hue suits and compliments my skin tone, making for an easy to wear shade that is quick to apply and ideal for the Autumnal months. If I'm not wearing Cruella on it's own, then I'm layering it up with a perfecting lip liner and setting with a liquid lipstick for prolonged wear. 

What are your favourite red lip shades?
