“Heels and red lipstick will put the fear of God in some people”
DITA VON TEESE
I am a big believer in blue based red lipsticks, the reason being is that they are great for making your teeth look whiter & will suit almost every skin tone. The best thing about red lipstick is its so versatile in the way you can change up your look. I’ve gone for Rock Chick Chic in this photo but you can certainly adopt the look to Hollywood Siren or High Powered Executive in a heartbeat. There are lots of luscious reds on the market but Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick is one of my absolute favourites. This lipstick is built to last & by that, I mean, all through dinner and a whole lot of smooching! My favourtie shade is BESO but I am also pretty keen on the colour Fiery as well!
The Bronte Butterfish Rules for red lipstick
Use a liquid eye liner and false eyelashes or lashings and I mean lashings of mascara. Apply loose powder over your foundation to remove shine and create a soft focus for the face. Use a red lip liner and colour in the whole of the lip (don’t worry if its not the exact shade of red) then apply Stila Stay All Day Lipstick in BESO or Fiery.Try to keep the eye area as neutral as possible, keep with the general rule of if you are going for a strong lip go lighter on the eyes.
