My Top 10 Reds!

Sunday, December 07, 2008

Nothing is more fem and chic than a great set of red lips. No matter what your age, skin tone, or face shape, there is a perfect red lipstick color for everyone. The one great thing about the timeless shade of red lipstick is that there are always options in price for every budget. So get ready for winter by finding a great red lipstick or two.

In no particular order, my 10 best:

1. Lancôme Color Fever Lipstick in Brickhouse

2. Nars Lipstick in Fire Down Below

3. Chanel Rouge Hydrabase Creme Lipstick in Red N°5

4. MAC in Spice It Up!

5. Fanny Serrano Moisturific Lipstick in Swiss Kiss

6. Clinique Different Lipstick in Angel Red

7. Smashbox Cream Lipstick in Lavish

8. L'Oreal Colour Riche in True Red

9. Bloom Lip Crayon in Pash

10. Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Passion Red

Now that you have chosen a possible red shade for you, another important consideration is the application.

STAINED: If full-on color makes you nervous, apply lipstick with your finger, patting it on the center of the lip and working outward to create a stained look, which is discreetly sexy and wearable anywhere.

INTENSE: First choose a lip liner that either matches the desired lipstick or is a shade darker than your natural lip color. After tracing the lip line, smudge the line slightly with a Q-tip or your fingertip to make it less rigid. Apply lip color with a lip brush, sweeping on just enough to lay a foundation of color. Blot lips with a tissue and apply a second coat, painting color on carefully. This gives lips dimension and makes lip color last.
