Sizzle up your look with these eye-catching crimson hues
Make a bold statement with lippies in our national colour
The Elizabeth Arden Sheer Kiss Lip Oil in 04 Rejuvenating Red, $34, gives lips a sheer wash of colour while imbuing it with hydrating oils and antioxidants. The Lancôme Juicy Shaker in 151 Cherry Symphony, $38, comes in a bi-phase oil and pigment formula, which you shake to get an ultra-moisturising lip oil with a translucent hint of colour. Amp up the glam with a scarlet lipstick like the M.A.C Satin Lipstick in M.A.C Red, $33. This iconic red lipstick glides on easily, with impressive colour payoff. For a subtle hint of red, line the outer corners of your eye with the Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon in Fine (Wine), $38, on top of your black eyeliner. Crease-proof and ultra-pigmented, the Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Colour Paint in M72, $40 (4.8 ml), lends your eyelids a vivid shade of crimson. A red blusher might look daunting, but a light-handed swipe of the NARS Exhibit A Blusher, $50, on the cheeks gives a natural-looking flush similar to a post-workout glow. Urban Decay’s all-new The Naked Heat Palette, $83, comes with 12 brand new shades of eye shadows in wearable tones of warm browns, terracotta and copper. If you’re going to own just one red makeup item, make it the Etude House Play 101 Blending Pencil in #21, $16.90; this multitasking pencil can be used on the eyes, lips and cheeks.
