That Red Lip Classic Thing That You Like - 1

Ever since I picked up the Rimmel Kate lipstick in shade 01, I've been wanting to do a classic red lip look on the blog, and today... here it is. It might not be groundbreaking, but it's super easy, quick, and a nice fail-safe for nights out.

Base and Brows - I began by applying some Collection Lasting Perfection concealer to any blemishes and areas of redness on my skin, before my favourite Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. I find putting concealer on first works better for me and gives me a more flawless finish. Under my eyes, I used the Clarins Instant Concealer. This is my tried and tested base at the moment - every time I wear a full face of makeup, this is where I start. My brows were a bit hastily done and I'll confess that I didn't realise how ungroomed they looked till I was editing the photos, so we'll all just have to live with it. Anyway, for what it's worth, I've used Benefit Brow Zings to define them a bit.

Face -  I wanted to keep this quite minimal and neutral, so as not to detract from the bold red lip, so I omitted blush and went for a sweep of the bronzer from the Maybelline Master Sculpt palette - a really useful product for when you want to keep things neutral - and a subtle highlight with a touch of Mac Soft and Gentle.

Eyes - Over a base of Urban Decay Anti-Ageing Primer Potion, I applied the shade Sidecar from the original Urban Decay Naked Palette all over my lids, taking it up past the socket and towards the brow bone to compensate for my hooded eyes. Then, I blended Darkhorse into my outer corners and crease to add a little definition and depth. I lined my eyes with the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper, which is a product I love. I thought I already had a good, precise felt tip liner (L'Oreal Superliner), but this one blows it out of the water in my opinion. The tip is so sharp, like a pin, and if you struggle with applying eyeliner for any reason I can't recommend this enough - it will definitely make your life easier! I curled my lashes and added plenty of mascara. Simply because it was the first one that came to hand, I went with Benefit Roller Lash. I do find this a nice mascara, particularly for lengthening, but its big selling point is that it holds a curl really well, and I don't feel that it does for me - at least not any better than other mascaras I own. I would love to know if anyone has found it to do this for them - let me know if it has!

Lips - The finishing touch was the beautiful Rimmel Kate lipstick in shade 01, which I applied using a lip brush to avoid getting it absolutely everywhere. The quality of this is great for a drugstore lipstick - creamy, pigmented and long lasting. The shade is a gorgeous true red and one that I'm sure is going to get a lot of use over the autumn and winter.

I really like this look and it's probably going to be my go-to night out makeup for a while!

  9. Roller Lash didn't hold any curl for my lashes, it didn't work for me at all. I much prefer Maybelline Lash Sensational which I swear they have changed the formula as it's not longer as wet as it was first released. I would go as far to say it's my HG drugstore mascara!

  15. I love how you did the makeup so the red lips stand out. Even though it’s a universally flattering shade, the bright red lip, it really suits your skin tone & hair even more!
