In this movie obsessed city, the world really is our stage! So, it makes complete sense to desire a look which drips with old Hollywood glamour. The focus of this look? The red lip: A key glamour staple and by coincidence a look which is very 'now'.
To wear red lipstick well, ensure you choose a shade that compliments your skin's warm or cool undertones. If your skin is cool, a lipstick with blue undertones -such as Mac 'Red'- -will work fabulously. If your skin is warm an orange toned red-such as Mac 'Lady Bug'-will deliver much better results. You want the focus to be your lips, so make sure the rest of your make up is simple. After applying a light covering of foundation, apply a concealer to even out skin tone and cover any blemishes. Add just a light slick of mascara to your eyes and some color to your cheeks with a light dusting of neutral toned blush.
Start by lining the lips with a matching or nude liner to prevent lipstick bleed. Smudge edges inwardly to blend. For a polished look, apply the lipstick with a fine brush, blot with a tissue and reapply. For a more casual 'bitten your lips' look, apply the color to a fingertip and dab gently onto lips. Finish with a dab of gloss in the centre of the bottom lip.
