There's no better way to dress up an LBD than with a strong red lip. Whether you're going for a vintage vixen look teamed with side-swept finger curls or fresh-faced and fierce, a slick of scarlet is guaranteed to up the glamour.
This bold beauty isn't just great for cocktail nights, it also works in the daytime for a modern, throw-away look. Pull on your ripped denims, slip into some heeled sandals and forget your mascara. You woke up like this, remember?
A lot of ladies shy away from this colour-pop makeup trend thanks to all the dos, don'ts and no-gos out there but nailing a red lip doesn't have to be rocket science.
Whether you suit a hot fiery tomato or a cooler bluish red, going with what works with your skin tone is the only rule of thumb we live by.
Angelina's the poster girl for this look. Famed for her perfect pout, she's knows exactly how to line her lips and pucker up for just about any event.
Her signature look? She rarely leaves her eyes untouched, opting for subtle smokey peepers and plenty of smudged eyeliner. Whaddya know, eyes and lips can be done, to hell with the rulebook.
With the likes of Taylor Swift, Kylie Minogue and Lupita Nyong'o referencing this classic beauty look time and time again, it seems this signature trend has some serious staying power.
You'll have a pout to rival Miss Jolie in no time! Nail it with our tutorial...
