Ooh La Luxe: The Perfect Red Lipstick

Luscious matte red lips are tres hot this season, but if you don’t nail your shade you can end up looking like some wayward clown. Or worse, a too-blue shade will accentuate any under-eye circles or acne, and an overly-matted look is dry and cakey–not hot.┬áBasically, the coveted red lip is a minefield of potential hideousness, as poor Kate Winslet, Ashley Olsen and Gwyneth Paltrow discovered first-hand:

So what’s a lippy It Girl to do? After much trial and error (just kidding, I look great in everything), I’ve decided that Make Up Forever’s┬áRouge Artist #43 red lipstick is the perfect blend of matte and hydrating while flattering the most skin tones.

To make the most of this shade, use a similarly colored liner, apply lipstick, blot with a tissue and dust with translucent powder, then reapply. Voila loves, irresistible lips, just in time for the countdown to Valentine’s Day…XOXO.
