If you’ve read my beauty blog for a while then you know I always say red lipstick may not be good for everyone. So when Christina Zilber, a makeup stylist for Jouer Cosmetics, approached me about the red lip trend that we are sure to see at the Golden Globes, I asked her if she’d be willing to help all of us understand what other colors on our face can help make a red lip work for everyone…and she did.
Red Carpet Red
For a true dramatic red carpet look, Christina created the Simone hydrating lipstick – a rich true red that should be worn for that glamorous holiday party or big night out.
Love the trend, but looking for a more subtle approach that fits your everyday lifestyle? Christina recommended a gloss because it is more sheer; try the Riviera Moisturizing lip gloss – a true red with a light shimmer.
Christina recommends that when doing a red lip, keep the rest of your makeup clean and simple. Let your lips say it all!
She recommends a Praline Powder Eyeshadow– a soft, creamy pearl that will add a subtle glow. A soft black eyeliner should be used with a thin line on the upper lash (always wear black liner with a red lip.)
Champagne Highlighter– soft natural highlight will keep your skin looking fresh and luminous and will accentuate the eye without making the look overwhelming.
On the cheeks, Christina recommends a soft natural rose blush applying a light wash of color. You want to make a statement without the look overpowering you.
