Festive Red Lip

I can't believe it's just one week until Christmas day! How exciting! As it's the party season I think it's nice to experiment with bright, festive, and usually a little out-of-your-comfort-zone, makeup. During the summer months I pretty much stick to the same peachy-pink lippy but come the winter I love trying new colours, and my most recent favourite is a red lip.

For me, the three products I’ve found to be perfect for creating an intense rouge lip are from MUA; the intense colour lip liner in Red Drama, the Lip Boom lipstick Bring It and the High Intensity Gloss in Pucker Up. Firstly, line your lips with the liner as well as filling them in completely for a super matte base that will not budge. Next, apply the lipstick over the top; you could leave it here but I like to slick on a layer of the (super pigmented!!) lip-gloss to finish. This combo just works so well together and lasts for hours on the lips as all of the products are highly pigmented and have great staying power. At just £6 for all three products I think it’s the perfect way to add a little festive touch to your look without spending too many pennies.
What's your go-to red lip combo?
