Runway-worthy red lips are easy to achieve on your clients. Maybe the approach of Valentine’s Day is making us feel romantic, but we’re loving the gorgeous red lips— from classic crimson to luscious cranberry—seen on the spring 2013 runways at shows like Loewe (seen here) and Prada. “Red lips are a classic statement because they offer a re ned and simple elegance,” says Make Up For Ever Pro and Media Educator Lijha Stewart. “Fifty years ago, women didn’t wear heavy eye makeup, so red lips were the look. Today, we can wear a red lip to enhance simple eye makeup or add extreme drama to a smoky eye.” To achieve the perfect red lip on your clients, Stewart advises using a lip pencil to line the center of the upper and lower lips and each corner of the mouth in a V shape, then drawing a line from the corners to the center. After lling in the lips with the pencil, set the liner with powder, then apply the lip color with a lip brush. “Start through the center of the lips and stretch to the outer corners to avoid bleeding,” she says. Check out some of our favorite red shades here. —Lotus Abrams SIREN CALL PHOTOGRAPHY: COURTESY OF REDKEN (BEAUTY) FROM LEFT: Jane Iredale PureMoist LipColour in Carrie; Bellápierre Cosmetics Lip Liner in Truly Red; Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Legendary; Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip in 08C-Red February 2013 American Salon 37
