Pair them with a subtle Smokey eye and you will be the head turner at the party. So in this post, i will be sharing the list of bollywood and hollywood actresses in red lips at events and some tips on which shades will suit which skin tones. Be it a wedding or a red carpet, a red lip is the best bet you can take if you know how to carry them. You can surely take inspiration from these celebrities and see who rocks the red lips the best.
I will also be sharing some tips to keep in mind when you sport the red lip trend because if a red lip goes wrong, the whole look goes wrong and trust me, it is very easy to go wrong with red lips! The great thing with red lips is that they can alone carry your look. Minimalist makeup with strong red lips channels the inner fashion diva in the ladies.
Some tips to keep in mind to achieve the perfect red lip:
- Always start with priming your lips with a balm. Strong matte red lipsticks are always very drying which will make the lips peeled and dry if not moisturised properly before application.
- Go for minimalist makeup if you are pairing it with red lips. Either a subtle Smokey eye or nude eye with flawless skin works well when paired with the strong lip.
- Matte reds are more striking then glossy reds. If it is a big event or a function, always try to go for matte. They also stay longer.
- Keep your skin tone in mind when finding the perfect red for you. Fair skin tones should go for cool reds or blue toned reds like wine, dark red, rub or burgundy. Medium skin tones can opt for warm toned reds like orangish red and coral red. Dark skin tones should go for brick red or blue toned deeper reds.
- Always line your lips with a lip liner first. It gives better control over the application and prevents feathering. A feathered red lip is the last thing you want at your wedding.
- Kiss the tissue. Apply the lipstick, kiss a tissue. Repeat. Intense colour and longer staying power!
