Sue Says: “I use Ruby Woo from M.A.C., it’s perfect for the Indian skin tone. Me and my girlfriends all use the same red and it’s great on all our skin tones!”
Nothing heralds the festive season better than wearing red! If you’re not brave enough to work it in your wardrobe, experiment with red lips to spread the cheer.Firstly, there’s a red for everyone! Don’t believe us? Find the right one for you. Winter divas with cooler skin and hair undertones should opt for shades with blue undertones. Red with hints of purple are made for you. But stay away from brick red or orange. Leave that to ladies with golden skin undertones.
Red lips can speak volumes if you keep the rest of your visage fairly balanced with colour. Camouflage redness around your nose or eyes with concealer – you don’t want to end up looking ruddy! We like Sonakshi Sinha’s bold colour choice at the Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2012 Runway Show. Wear a scarlet wash in the day, by choosing a gloss version. Take the look to night by opting for a creamy lipstick with a matching lip-liner for definition. Bleeding lips are never in season!
Winter can be the worst enemy for your lips. Curb flakiness by applying lip balm regularly.
Lip Tip: Gently brushing your lips with a toothbrush will keep them smooth and luscious. If you’ve never tried red before, it’s now or never! Put it down to Christmas fever or a New Year’s resolution for a new you, but don’t leave home without it!
