How to Wear Red Lips This Festive Season

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Red Lipsticks are universal and classic. Red Lips never go out of style. It is elegant and versatile and everyone can wear with it with confidence by keeping in mind some rules of dos & don’ts:


Pick the “Right” Red: Girls with yellow undertones will look better with warmer reds and similarly if you have a light/pink complexion you will flatter the plumy red shades. You also need to choose if you want a matte finish or glossy finish lipstick depending on the dress you decide to put on for the night.

Prepare your Lips: Exfoliate and scrub your lips to get rid of chapped & flaky skin. Red bloody skin peeling off your lips is the last thing anyone ever wants to see.

Rest of the Face: Go light on the eyes and cheeks or else you might end up looking like a clown. Go with a light eye makeup ideally with a wash of beige or champagne colours.

Line your lips: Trace your lips with the closest possible red lip liner to your lipstick to define their shape. Red lipsticks tend to bleed, so fill up your lips with a red lip liner. Be precise in applying red lipstick and use a lip brush for perfect application of color.

Prevent “Bleeding”: Apply a little concealer around the lips to avoid lipstick to stain. Also, blot your lips using a tissue paper to get rid of excess color on the lips which can easily get onto your teeth.

  1. lovely reds. I loved the Aishwarya Rai one the most. I have one nice bright one from maybelline and have dared it to wear it only once. I think its a more orangey red. And as Rati said with winter approaching perhaps a good time to bring it out again.

  2. I have a red lipstick from Lotus Herbals and that’s the least used one in my collection. I have prominent lips and i am so scared to use any dark shades on them. Scar Jo looks very pretty in the picture..! 🙁 🙁

  3. Love red lips.. I have a red with pink undertones from Revlon. Just brightens my face.. & yeah whiter teeth.. sometimes wear to office as a stain.

    Perfect ending (neha’s luscious lips.. s*xy..) to this post..
