As the holiday season looms ahead, red lipstick is certain to make a bold first impression under the mistletoe. Evidenced on the runways and spotted on the red carpets, glamorous crimson pouts are sure to steal the spotlight at every holiday party. If you’re wondering how to rock this classic lip colour, look no further than the season’s runways. Whether you prefer saturated colour or stained berry hues, here’s how to embrace varying shades of catwalk approved red lipstick as we step into the holiday season.
At Roksanda, ruby red lips brought colour to models’ otherwise fresh-faced and scrubbed clean visages. Meanwhile, glowing skin, peachy blush and minimal eye makeup offset the lip look. If you prefer simplicity, pair a ruby-toned pout with toned-down eyes and a middle-parted hairstyle.
For a party-ready look, introduce a pop of colour into your makeup look, with punchy and slightly shimmering red lipstick. The Prada runways showcased a brilliant red lip colour which managed to look both sultry and sweet at the same time. Contrast your luminous scarlet lips with a dewy complexion, a single coat of mascara and wavy, slick locks.
If you adore vampy beauty, stain your lips with a soft berry red shade (as spotted on the Erdem catwalk). The look of full brows, dark eyelashes and softly defined cheekbones brought this makeup statement to new levels. As an alternative to luscious red pouts, a light lip stain imparts instant sex appeal with subtle undertones.
