Is there anything more chic than a basket bag, stripes and a red lip to make it just that little bit more fancy. Now, not all red lip sticks are made equal. Some are drying, some slide off your face and onto your chin (it happened mid-burger, how awkward) and some chill out on your teeth for no good reason. The top three go-to lipsticks are Tom Ford, Chanel and Dior. Yes they are on the more expensive side but hot damn, they have the most velvety feel and the colours are divine. Now you've got my top three brands for lipsticks, allow me to complete the recommendation with my top three tips on lipstick buying/wearing.
Firstly, unless you've tried the colour on do not buy online. Yes they have swatches but they're not always that accurate and who wants to throw money on a lippy that'll never be worn? Secondly, preparation (particularly with bold colours) is a must. I mean smother on a good lip balm 10-15 mins before you apply your lippy, making sure to blot any excess off before applying. Thirdly, colour outside the lines! Lip liners are a sensational and crucial step to the perfect lip. Line your kissers just outside your lip line for a fuller, more luscious pout.
Et Voila! Kissable lips perfect for your next outing - you're welcome darlings!
