Makeup Manual: The Red Lip Three Ways


There’s nothing that balances sophistication and sex appeal quite like a red lip. It’s a classic that can be worn year-round and always exudes timeless style and confidence. You can be wearing the most basic of outfits and a red lip immediately transforms the entire thing. (Think of Gwen Stefani—she rocks a red lip with sweat pants and looks incredible!) Whether you’re going for a bold dramatic look or simply looking to test the waters with a tint, sporting a red lip is always on trend.

Luckily my longtime friend and makeup guru Monika Blunder knows some red-hot (I couldn’t resist!) tricks of the trade. Check out this video where she demonstrates how to create 3 perfect red lip looks:

Here’s what you’ll need…


1. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella
2. NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Moscow
3. Tom Ford Lip Color in Scarlet Rouge

What are your thoughts on this bold beauty look?

Love, Molly
