A red lip is often described as the ‘Little Black Dress’ of beauty – it’s timeless, undeniably glamorous and decidedly feminine. Yet, red is still a shade that a lot of us put off trying, for fear that it might overwhelm or worse, make us look clownish. While this fear is justifiable, we still feel that it shouldn’t stop you from trying on a red lip. And no, you don’t need the perfect Cupid’s bow or a glam squad to ace the red lip either. The key here is finding the perfect shade of red that makes you feel powerful and sexy, and you can only do so by testing the colour on your lips, not hands. Here, we present you the 8 reds that we fell head over heels for, and we think you might too.
