I’ve always struggled to embrace my pale winter skin, not helped with my yellow skin tone which quite frankly, can make me look ill in the depths of winter. That was until I tried wearing a red lipstick. Something I’d always shied away from has now become my saviour for those days when I look washed out and tired. Use the right colour of red and it can really brighten your face and make you feel like you’re ready for the world. Glossy or matte, bold or sheer, day or night—a red lip is the simplest way to transform your look. I really believe it can brighten your mood and boost your confidence. To shed light on which shade of red lipstick complements your unique skin tone, we can help with our blog Get Lippy.
I've also created a video tutorial to help you create a quick modern look thats so easy, you'll have it mastered on the first attempt! All the products I used are listed below.
