Trend To Try: AdREDnaline Rush

THE red lip is a classic for a reason: it creates a glammed-up appearance in just one sweep and is universally flattering.  Matt or glossy, deep or bright, from rich blue-based reds to bright orange-toned hues, there is literally a shade for everyone! 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.

I always knew I would work in magazines, as I grew up in publishing (my parents are publishers). When I’m not writing beauty or following my passion for make-up, I can be found reading and spending time with family and friends. I am also a tea-lover
