Promise Picks: Classic Red Lips

On a special night out I wear red lips, I just adore the polished and statement look it gives (only if there is a MUA handy to apply it!), and I love to see a bride embrace this look. For some a striking red lip is too much and just not bridal, but we are seeing more and more brides have the confidence to rock a red lip, and this gives me all the joy!

Today we’ve gathered a little inspiration to help you decide if you’re on the fence about wearing this look and asked some of our gorgeous Directory MUA’s their favourite rosy shades. Spoiler alert, MAC wins!

If you’re thinking of wearing a red lippie we’ve done the hard part and asked some of our favourite makeup artists for their favourites.

Tippy Logronio has two favourites Dubonnet by MAC (1), and Red Velvet by Bobbi Brown (2). Dubonnet has a deep claret undertone, whilst Red Velvet is a deep rich red with a moisturising finish.

Both Lesley-Ann from LA Pro and Kerry from By Kerri Bridal Make Up Artist chose my favourite, Ruby Woo by MAC. The shade is very matte with a blue base.

Stacey from S.A.K.Designs loves to use Russian Red by MAC. An intense blue-red however suits most women and gives a true Hollywood statement lip.

Do you have a favourite red lip colour?
