A classic red lip is always a hit no matter what the occasion. I was always sceptical about how red would look on my olive skin tone but from the day a sales associate at the Chanel make up counter encouraged me to try a darker shade of red I have never looked back. I find that a red lip instantly brightens your complexion and can take any look to the next level, so its all a matter of finding the perfect shade of red for your skin tone.I also find that a lot of people feel like you can’t wear a smoky eye with a red lip but I think if you do the right kind of smokey eye you definitely can and it just amps up the glamour! So for this look I have paired this classic red hollywood lip with a soft taupe/brown smokey eye and a matte contour. I have kept the smokiness on my lower lash line to a minimum so the eyes would not overpower the red lip.
I hope you like the look and please don’t forget to subscribe to my youtube channel for more tutorials and make up tips!
