5 ways to get the perfect red lip


5 ways to get the perfect red lip

Intentionally smudged, glossy lips are the order of the day

By ELLE team  December 9th, 2017

Forget your lip liners and indelible matte lipsticks. The only way to wear your pout is with high-shine gloss that doesn’t have to be perfectly lined. Think of it as a shiny stain that’s faded towards the edges of your mouth to make it look worn in. The models at Giambattista Valli wore a deep berry lip gloss, smudged to look like they had just been kissed. Those at Jenny Packham had a more effortless take on the unfinished lip with a patchy red stain. Make a statement by applying colour on the centre of your lips and buffing it outwards with your finger or a brush. It’s lipstick, but much easier to apply in the back of a taxi.
