It’s time to spice things up.
In case you missed it, lipstick is making a comeback. Whether you’re looking to get into the trend or shake up your usual beauty routine, a red lipstick is the perfect place to start. While there’s plenty of lipstick shades to choose from — like a nude lip, a punchy pink or any color in between — there’s nothing quite as classic as a bold red lipstick. To help you find the perfect red lipstick, we’re sharing five gorgeous red lipstick makeup looks that do all the talking.
Want your red lipstick to be the star of the show? Pair a glowing, radiant complexion with a bright red lip. This spicy shade provides the perfect contrast against glowing skin and is great for both the fall and winter seasons. To get the look, prep your skin for makeup with the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Blurring Face Primer. Next, smooth on a skin enhancing tinted moisturizer, like the L’Oréal Paris Skin Paradise Water Infused Tinted Moisturizer, for lightweight coverage with a glowing finish. Pull the look together with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Red Passion for the perfect bright red pout.
Punchy red lipstick and bronze eyes is a combo perfect for every occasion. What’s more, you can create the look in just two easy steps! All you need to do is give your lids an all-over wash of bronze with the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Bronze Light and swipe on your favorite red lippie (we love the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Matador.)
For a simple monochrome makeup look, coordinate your blush with your lipstick. Peach cheeks wear beautifully, especially when paired with an orange-red lipstick for an all over warm look. Sweep the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Radiant Satin Blush in Peony over your cheeks, then smooth the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Mademoiselle Mango over your lips.
Achieve a radiant look by drawing attention to your cheekbones with a shimmering highlighter. First, warm up your complexion by applying the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Bronze It Bronzer to your cheekbones, cupid's bow and the tip of your nose with your fingertip or a fluffy makeup brush. Then, to amp up your glow, add a bit of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion to your cheekbones. Finally, color your pout with a wine-colored hue, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus Intense Nude Lipstick in Nu Artistique.
Of course we couldn’t leave out this classic red lipstick combo: bright red lips and winged eyeliner. For a long-lasting flawless wing, we recommend using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil. Finish with your look with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin in British Red.
