I popped into my local barbershop wearing my signature Ruby Woo lipstick and the compliments were coming through thick and fast, I was slightly taken back, when even strangers on the street were giving me a cheeky wink. So what is it about red lips that send men in a frenzy. The sense of alluring seduction heat, passion and desire, brought on by icons such as Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. Having a signature red lipstick instantly gives you a Hollywood smile. Every woman should have a signature shade of red lipstick; it’s the Cinderella item of your makeup bag.
Ruby Woo- Ruby Woo by MAC is great for darker skin tones with a matt everlasting finish that looks great for the office as well as a night out. Recently endorsed by none other than Rihanna, so why not get your RiRi on.
Flamenco- Flamenco by Nars is a great alternative to Ruby Woo if you’re looking for a sheer, gloss semi opaque lippy. Highly recommended for medium to dark skin tones to complete your look for the night.
Cherry Lush- The name says it all Cherry Lush by Tom Ford, is a deep berry colour with an even balance of red hues. If you are looking to up the temperature in your look, this is definitely the one to go for. With Adele back in the game this is the perfect way to capture her look bold and glamorous.
In Box Deep Scarlet Red- Illamasqua’s In Box looks great on olive skin tones, elegantly crafted with a matt finish. Complimenting your alter ego, go on walk on the dark side.
