The Perfect Pout – A Guide to Applying Red Lipstick

By Odun Ogunbiyi When it comes to make-up I can’t think of anything more glamorous, sophisticated and timeless than luscious sexy red lips. There really is a shade out there for everyone and the real way to find it is by trial and error.  You can either buy 100 lipsticks and glosses or get yourself to a makeup store and try them out until you find the shade that works for you and ask a professional to help. Red lipstick works equally well from day to night.  At the moment I’m really loving my Mac Ruby Woo (yes it’s Nigeria’s favourite Lipshade and I think it actually suits EVERY skin tone on the planet, even though Lola has tried to explain to me that it dosen’t! What does she know anyway..) and also my Mary Kay Red.
