Red is the hottest colour we’re here to tell you why you should totally be wearing a bright rouge pout at any time of the week.
It’s a classic
While makeup trends on the Fashion Week runways may change every season, there’s a reason why the red lip look, as seen at this season’s Saint Laurent, Cushnie Et Ochs and Mary Katrantzou shows, remain a constant. The sizzling colour is timeless and can go well with just about anything you wear.
It lights you up!
Ever accidentally leave the house without any makeup on (the horror!)? Try swiping on a red lippie and see how that makes you feel. It draws attention away from your dull skin and brightens up your face in an instant.
Brings you confidence
Notice that sudden surge of self-assurance you get when you have a bright lip on? The rouge pout definitely gets people’s attention, who in turn, will stop to listen (and admire) at what you say.
A brighter smile
Choosing the right red lippie can help in brightening your smile. Reds with cool blue undertones will contrast the yellowness in your teeth, bringing the white out into focus.
It can become your signature
What do Taylor Swift, Gwen Stefani and Marylin Monroe have in common? Obviously, the fact that they rock their signature rouge pouts flawlessly in anything they wear (and do!). As Tay Tay sings it, “I got that red lip, classic thing that you like.” And you can have it too!
Introducing the Rouge Dior
Launching a wide range of lippies in both satin and matte finishes, Dior’s new Rouge Collection, available in stores this month, caters to the woman who wants to make a powerful statement.
