Making a statement on a hot date ;)

There's only one other thing men pay attention to apart from boobies, booties and the rest... and that is a red lip, with messy Victoria-secret hair. It makes them all swoon. It's also fun to wear it now and then with red pumps and sexy cocktail dress. I have discovered the hidden beauty of the RED lipstick!

Here is NYX Snow White lippie, which I got from my recent Cherry Culture haul. If you've never done a red lip, my recommendation is to go for something cheap. This lippie applies relatively matte. It's texture is not so creamy so it's best to use a moisturising lip balm underneath.

The secret to pulling off a red lip is a clean matte complexion. No dewiness, no sheen.

First, you need to line your lips and use a lip brush to be absolutely precise. Blot, then apply your lipstick again. This helps to keep it on the whole day even after eating and drinking.

Here is the gear I used to create this look:
RMK Creamy Make up Base Mat
Maquillage Lasting Liquid Foundation UV
Shu Uemura Loose Powder
NARS Madly blush
Rimmel Colour Mousse 8 hr as an eyebase
MAC mineralise eyeshadow in Engaging
Ardell lashes in 110
Shu Uemura eyebrow pencil
NYX snow white lipstick
MAC cremestick liner in beurre

And the most important 'gear' of all is a big smile :)

Pretty! Snow White looks like a great red -- my super-dry lips probably couldn't handle it, but all the same *shrugs*
