red lip

This look is red HOT!

I’m absolutely loving the red obsession with nails and lips of late.  Seen on faces decorated by Pat McGrath at Fashion Week and on the talons of celebrities, it’s a colour that has a timeless appeal.  Pat McGrath is an industry legend with designers hot on her heels to create visionary masterpieces to compliment their collections.

From bright classic shades to a more warm tone adopted at the Dolce & Gabbana AW13, red lips are massively on trend right now.  More classically and oozing Hollywood Glamour, Gucci Westman teamed red lips with matching nails to showcase the hottest hue at Antonio Beradi.  It really is the colour to be adopting not only this season but well into next.  Gucci created the visual treat by applying Revlon’s ‘True Red’; the perfect shade to capture this look effortlessly.

For some, red can be a colour reserved for only brave trend setters.  However, its popularity is catapulting with celebrities and street style fashionistas opting for this timeless colour.  If you’re not quite brave enough to experiment with a red pigment take the lead from Sass & Bide who kept it reserved with a nude lip by Charlotte Tilbury paired with red nails created using ‘Haute Red’ & ‘Rockets Red Glare’ from Orly’s new ‘Flash Glam’ collection.

Gone are the days where red had an ominous demeanour, its out of the danger zone and made its way into the trend zone.  Take note from James Boehmer at NARS by investing in NARS ‘Salsa’ lip liner pencil to be the epitome of a scarlet siren!
