If you want maximum effect and minimum effort, you can’t beat a red lippie
Trends come and go (terracotta lipstick, anyone?) but a pinot pout never goes out of style. No makeup is more synonymous with glamour than a slick of red lipstick and, best of all, this classic look is all about maximum effect and little effort.
Here’s how to experiment with claret coloured lipstick for a look that stands the test of time.
Press the colour in
Use a matching lip liner
Blot to set the colour
Use highlighter to enhance
Finish with powder for a matte finish
