Red lips: How to do perfect red lips


The perfect shade

Leanne Shaw from Frontcover Cosmetics says the key to the perfect red lip is to select the right shade.

"If you think you can't pull off red lipstick think again, you just need the right shade for your skin tone. If you have pale skin use tones such as scarlet red or rose shades."

"For a medium complexion stick to brighter shades like orange reds and ruby reds. For darker skin tones stronger shades like burgundy and cranberry will work best."

Red lip tool kit:

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lipstick comes in Apricot, Rose and Cranberry - so there's a shade of red for every skintone.
RRP: £18.50
Available from John Lewis
