All in the Reds

Honestly, I think a red lip is the most flattering way to make a woman look a little extra special! I used to be afraid of the bolder colours due to my fuller lips, but now a days I'm happy with just embracing what I've been given so I now wear a red lippie loud and proud.
I've also found that is a great way to improve a drab/monochrome outfit which I found I am wearing more and more in the winter months. I recently shot a style focused video for O2 Guru TV( check out the link here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p01JqTL9x5o&feature=c4-overview-vl&list=PL545102085462F3B8) and thats exactly what I did.
Pairing a black hat, jacket, trousers, and a grey T, my bold red lips help to offset the darkness. A trick you should all try!

My favourite Red Lip Gloss at the moment is MAC's Driven By Love, its a goss with amazing colour pay off.

  1. I've always shied away from a red lip as I thought it drew too much attention to my big lips haha! I NEED to get myself a MAC lippy. The new MAC store opened in my area at the weekend, so I'll see what's there.
    You look lovely!

  10. You are so brave! The colour looks absolutely fantastic on you. I have never been able to embrace the red lip as I feel it will bring a bit too much attention to my face lool. Maybe this Christmas I shall try it out as a little bit of red fits right in with this festive period :)

  21. Love the red lips with that blue jumper! What concealer did you use as an under eye highlight? I'm struggling to find one that's warm/yellow toned. Every time I go a shade lighter it just seems to dull my complexion :S
