Red lips in vogue again

I suppose red lips have never really been out of fashion, though nude glosses seem to have been more popular for some time now. I was really excited to see Makeup Move Of The Moment: Really Red Lips! on Refinery29 because I’ve been a longtime fan of red lips. In my makeup case now are Heat Wave (Nars Semi-Matte $24) – a hot, coral-y red that looks great with a tan – and Red Revival (Maybelline Color Sensational $5-$7) – a richer, more classic red that glams up any outfit. I used to wear a dark purpley red in college, but I think it scared people away so I stopped wearing it.

Don’t forget to get a hold of a neutral or similarly-shaded red lip liner. The reds are not forgiving of unsteady hands so it’s probably best to outline before trying to color, much like the coloring books of our childhoods.
