The trick to turn­ing heads when it comes to wear­ing red lip­stick is choos­ing the per­fect shade for you. When you’ve found your ideal

hue, be­gin by mak­ing sure your lips are smooth and in good con­di­tion, then, us­ing a liner in a sim­i­lar colour to your shade, lightly line the lips and fill them in – this will stop the lip­stick from bleed­ing and will hold the colour in place for longer. Ap­ply your lip­stick di­rectly from the tube or dab in the cen­tre and use your fin­ger to blend out­wards. Place a tis­sue over your lips and dust translu­cent pow­der over the tis­sue.The pow­der will lightly fall on your lips through

the tis­sue to set your lip colour. Fi­nally, fig­ure out the fin­ish you want – be it shiny, vel­vety or matte – then com­plete your look

with just a slick of mas­cara.
