Everyone has their own opinion on which is the ultimate bolt of red lipstick. The fact is red is one everyone’s lips. Rush out to get yours!

Don’t Fear The Sheer
Sheer shades are ideal for experimentation. Even if you’re not comfortable with bold lipstick, a bright but sheer lip colour is an easy risk to take. It’s a way to test out the trend without being OTT.

Line Out Loud
A bold red lip requires lip liner. This ensures a clean definition around your lips, and can also help make your lip colour last longer. Choose a pencil close to the lipstick shade, or you can try a darker shade to make the look more intense.
