Girl, if you’re looking for some serious lip candy, pucker up and say hello to our fave look of the moment.
Seriously, who doesn’t love a classic matte red lip, right? But if you want to switch up your go-to look for spring, a bold shot of gloss is the way to go. It’s strikingly versatile, either coolly retro or modern Hollywood glamour depending on how you work it, but what we really love is that it’s a look everyone can wear. Yep, everyone.
Step 1: First up, it’s time to get your kit together. Grab the Spotlite HD makeup mirror, our must-have beauty tool for providing bright-as-day and natural lighting that’ll help you achieve the flawless application to rock this look with confidence.
Step 2: Prep the lip – and this [part is soooo important! So soften and smooth the lip area with APA Beauty’s Lip Loofah, a gentle scrub that banishes dryness for the perfect canvas, then follow with Eve Lom’s cult Kiss Mix lip balm for deep-down nourishment.
Step 3; Here at JOI we’re huge fan of NARS makeup, and the brand’s Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is the key to giving this lip look serious staying power. First apply the chubby pencil as you would a lip liner, then fill in the entire lips.
Step 4: Now for the fun finishing touch; Christian Louboutin’s wet-look Loubilaque Lip Lacquer in Rouge Louboutin, a shade inspired by the iconic red soles of the designer’s infamous shoes. And there you have it… the classic red lip you love, with extra va-va-voom.
