Natural makeup must-haves: Red lips

Natural makeup must-haves: Red lips
Posted by Felicia Cardinal

The reign of the nude natural makeup trend could be over – if Gwen Stefani and her recent praise from the media is anything to go by.

She recently stepped out with a stark face and lips coated in matte red lipstick that stood out a mile and has earned approval from all the beauty gurus.

With Chanel sporting blood-red lips on the catwalk and stars such as Gwen, Christina Aguilera and Jessica Alba citing red lips as the one thing they could not do without, it's about time we invested in a top-notch lipstick too.

Makeup artist Kristin Gallegos shed some light on the matter, telling The Stir blog that both the Proenza Schouler and Givenchy shows worked the natural makeup style with pale, matte faces.

"But ... the focus was on the lip. It was a very defined, dark wine or blood-red lip. It's a strong look for the season that really makes a statement!" she asserted.

To create a natural makeup look that really "pops", pick a deep red shade (go even darker for a Twilight-esque style), use concealer on the lips first and match the lipstick shade with a darker lip liner.ADNFCR-2885-ID-800020787-ADNFCR
