Red hot

Prima (UK) - - Beautiful You -

It’s the on-trend colour of the sea­son – and ev­ery­one can wear it. Just ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent shades – you’ll know when you’ve found The One, be­cause it will brighten skin! Here are our rules for red.

DO USE FIN­GERS

Ap­pli­ca­tion is key. ‘Red is more mod­ern when it looks laid-back,’ says Terry Barber, di­rec­tor of makeup artistry at MAC, who sug­gests ap­ply­ing from the tube and us­ing fin­gers to push colour into place for a softer out­line. DON’T OVERDO EYES

Keep eyes look­ing sub­tle so they don’t com­pete with your lips – a wash of Cham­pagne or taupe eye­shadow is soft and pretty. Keep lashes low-key, too – Pixi By Pe­tra Lower

Lash Mas­cara, £11, pro­vides a nat­u­ral, flut­tery coat­ing.

DO TRY IT AT HOME

Just like a new pair of shoes, a bright lip­stick needs to be worn in. Wear it while vac­u­um­ing or watch­ing TV un­til you get used to the feel and the look.

DON’T ‘SMACK’ YOUR

LIPS TO­GETHER

It’s what most of us do to ‘set’ the colour and even out our lip­stick, but it’s ac­tu­ally more likely to smudge the out­line. Blot with a tis­sue in­stead!
