Face of the Day–Red Lip

I’m not sure what it is (possibly the fact that it’s summer) but I’ve really enjoyed experimenting and switching up my daily makeup look recently.  I decided to create a ‘red lip’ look for daily wear which I’ve been loving recently, so I decided to show you what I used to create the look!

faceofthe day

Products Used:
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Siberia
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC15
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Sleek Blusher in Natural
MAC’s Nylon Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Shadow in Desperation
Sleek Gel Liner in Dominatrix
Benefit They’re Real Mascara
Gosh Kohl Liner in Black
L’Oreal Super Liner Gelmatic in Taupe Grey
The Body Shop Lipstick in #105

After applying my base with Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, MAC’s Concealer & Rimmel Powder, I used my favourite eyeshadow (Nylon from MAC) all over my eyelid, adding a tad of Urban Decay’s Desperation in the crease of the eye.  I used my black gel liner (by Sleek) to create a flick, lined my waterline with Gosh’s black kohl and used Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara to coat my lashes.  Finally, I finished with a slick of red lipstick, a new one from The Body Shop!

Do let me know if you would like to see any other ‘looks’ on me – I’m still in the mood to experiment!

What’s your current favourite red lipstick?

    Could we see a deep burgundy lip look especially as Autumn is literally just around the corner!

    Looks beautiful!! I love red lips in any season, they always look amazing and I think being a blonde makes the lipstick pop.

    I think you look great with the red lips! My favourite red lipstick is 'Heartbeat red' from Avon's colortrend collection 🙂

    i think a purple look would look really gorge on you, maybe a magenta-ish lip? it's a tricky one to pull off but with your skin tone and eye colour, i think it could really work. and it's not a colour many bloggers experiment with!

    love this lippy on you, and your skin looks amazing!

    You look so lovely, Katie! Those lips are gorgeous! x

    It's a good shade of red, has the orange without being overly so.
    My favourite red is 'New York Apple' by Mac. Love my Frosts, and it's an easy to wear red. 🙂
