A bold red lip needs perfect skin and a mattifying primer helps prevent any oiliness and shine whilst giving your skin a soft finish. Use the Matte Perfecting Primer to even out your complexion and give your makeup staying power.
Get a flawless base.
You want enough coverage to prevent any redness or imperfections shining through. We love the Double Wear foundation for a long lasting, flawless finish. Use a buffing brush to apply and blend and for the best results, apply one light layer and build up coverage only where needed for a fresher look.
Contour and shape.
For a bit of extra drama, steer clear of the blush and go for cheekbone defining contour. The New Dimensions Shape and Sculpt Face Kit contains a dark bronzing shade for contouring, and a lighter shade for highlighting and accentuating your cheekbones. Apply the darker shade first to contour along the hollows of the cheeks and the edges of the face. Then highlight where the light naturally catches your face. They key to gorgeous contour is building up gently and blending really well.
Keep the eyes simple.
You don’t want your eye Make Up to distract people from your bold lip, so a sweep of liner is all you need. Apply a stroke of Double Wear Infinite Waterproof Liner in Kohl Noir along the top lash line for for gorgeously defined eyes without the fuss. Finish with some volumising mascara.
Go bold and bright.
The lips are the centrepiece of this look, and the Estée Lauder Liquid Lip Potions are the most incredible way to wear a bold colour. They apply easily and precisely thanks to the rounded tip and the liquid lipstick formulation give rich colour without stickiness. There is a red for every skin tone too; ‘Cold Fire’ is an orange toned red for a modern, slick finish, ‘Naughty Native’ is a classic, rich red, and ‘Quiet Riot is a gorgeous berry red.
