Finding The Perfect Red Lip | Valentines Make Up

By Mellissa McGrath - 17:09:00

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought I would share with you three of my favourite Red Lips, each a very different formula, shade and price range but each perfect for a Valentine's make-up look...

LOreal Colour Riche (461)

This a very beautiful classic red shade, moisturising with a sheen it looks perfect as a statement lip and winged liner. As it is such a bright shade, I think it looks great on a paler skin tone and would work for a day time lunch or a night time event - you can't go wrong with a classic!

Collection Gothic Glam Lipstick - Seduction

This is definitely more on the plum side, but I thought it was good to include a darker toned lipstick because we don't all like/suit a red lip! I personally prefer a plum shade and this is gorgeous, not too dark and with a slight shimmer it stays on the lips nicely keeping them hydrated and looks great on it's own with little make-up or with a smokey eye for a fuller evening glamorous look! Collection is a very affordable range which I love and these lipsticks are great for the price..

MAC matte lipstick - Ruby Woo

I thought I would include something matte, as I have been loving matte lipsticks lately. This is extremely long lasting and is the perfect red shade for a sophisticated classic look. It is a little more pricey than the other two but this shade is unlike any others I have found and is a shade of red which I think suits all skin tones and looks beautiful as a statement lip! 

So that's it, those are my top three red lipsticks which are all very different from one another but look great. I have been using these as my go to reds for a long time now and I'm yet to find anything that takes there place! These are great for any occasion, whether you are shopping with friends, having a DVD night in or going for a lovely meal and drinks.
Adding a red lip to your make up look makes you feel glamorous and put together, absolutely perfect if you don't have time or want a pick me up or add some colour to your chosen overall look!

What is your favourite red lipstick? :)
