Perfect Red Lips for Holiday

This coming Spring/Summer Lip Trend is all about red lips. Full, voluptious and pouty classic red lips. Let's look at some runway trends sporting red lips.

Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2010

The red lip is a deeper, wine-coloured stain with the rest of the face remaining soft and shimmery in comparison. Hair is whipped up airy and romantic up-dos to go with the look. Makeup created by noted British makeup artist, Pat McGrath.

Emanuel Ungaro Spring/Summer 2010

It is said to be classic lips with a quirky twist. Layered carefully by MAC make-up artist Carole Lasnier and her team, the keywords were "thick" and "3D", and the end look a result of a lot of work. First, Cherry Lip Pencil traced the entire lip, then a dusting of translucent powder, followed by Ruby Woo lipstick (a classic and Vogue favourite), then some more powder and finally a slick of a creamy Crimson Lipmix/ Fuchsia Pigment Powder mix.

Owning a red lipstick is a must this holiday season, don't wait until Spring to get them. Let's look at a swatch from MAC Dubonnet.

Pair red lips with clean polished eyes. You would want the attention to be concentrated on your lips. What do you think of me with red lips? :D

You can also check out the review from Temptalia's site.

A video tutorial I've picked up on YouTube by Suzi taught us how to create the perfect pout. Enjoy!

That is a great shade of red! I like that it's a little bit on the darker side and nor orangey looking.
