In my recent shoots I have been asked to do a red lip. Red lips are always on trend and we pretty much see them in every season. I have way too many lipsticks but I feel never enough red lipstick as there are so many shades to choose from from a traffic red to a deep red. Not all colours will suit you so remember to try before you buy.

For the porcelain a more orange based or cherry red like Lady Danger by Mac, for fair skin tone a cooler red works best but you can get away with a brigher red, for a medium skin tone a brighter red like a Mac Russian Red looks amazing and for Olive skin tones you can get away with most of the reds but a bolder red like Ruby from Stila would be perfect and for dark skin I am a fan of Russian Red but again this skin tone can wear most shades. I am a big fan of Mac when it comes to lipsticks as they really cover all the colours and the red lip editorial palette is a winner for me.  So here are my picks and definitely key in my kit and  I really can’t live without:

1) Ruby Woo by Mac

If like me you love to order beauty goodies online you need to take a look at www.style36.co.za. I ordered some Stila makeup on the weekend and 2 days later my package came. The delivery guy called me to check if I was home before he delivered, so very impressed with their service. What was really nice was that you now get 3 free samples of other products they are selling with any beauty purchase.  Its always great when you can test other products out and know quality before you buy. This is what I received so looking forward to testing these lovely products out:



The beauty buyer at Style36 informed me that Style36  are  now also offering free samples from 2 of their brands they are selling online! We always happy to hear that if we buy we get rewarded with more goodies!

Here is Decleor’s offering and I love this new collection as recently blogged about the mask.



Here is Stila’s offering. To all you Stila lover’s out there free lip glosses when you spend R450 or more and the glosses are amazing I have all of them!



So getting busy beauty shopping!

Hope you enjoyed my post. X
