The Ultimate Autumn Trend wine red lips

Dark red wine lips are a top trend this season and has been seen in the Autumn catwalk shows of Givenchy, Moschino and Karl Lagerfeld. To get the perfect red pout follow these simple steps:

1) Prep lips using a good lip exfoliater (or use your usual facial exfoliater and rub off with a tissue) This is essential for a smooth finish especially in the autumn months where your skin can dry out because of the extreme differences in temperature

2) This is also why you then need to prep lips by moisturising. Even Vaseline will help condition your lips.

3) Next use a good lip liner which matches your lipstick. (Mac lip pencils in ‘Redd’ (£10) is fantastic. ) Start at the centre of the ‘cupid’s bow’ and work outwards following your natural lip line.

4) To prevent bleeding of colour, which often occurs on more mature or dried out skin, use a lip line fixer which contains beeswax. The best one I’ve tried is the Body Shop lip line fixer which is £7.50 but absolutely brilliant and lasts a long time

5) Finally add lip colour with a lip brush for more precise application. Again, start at the cupids bow and work your way outwards filling in as you go. You can get some fantastic lipsticks from your local superstore but MAC lipsticks are fantastic if you want to treat yourself

6) Dab your lips with a tissue and reapply for a longer lasting matt finish or coat with clear lip gloss for a glossy look.

Top Tips

• Red lips look fantastic paired with red accessories

• The fantastic thing about red lips is that it suits every skin tone and type and can give you a little ‘pop’ when the rest of your make up or outfit has neutral or dark tones.

• Remember if you have bright lips you need to be subtle on the rest of the face to avoid looking ‘over done.’
  • Red lips never  go out of fashion so buying a good lipstick is a good investment

Hope you have fun with one of this seasons hot looks,
