My favorite celebrity Red lips looks : Part 1

Hi everyone!

Red lips are glamorous and always in vogue, I have been lately bitten by the ‘red lips’ bug and those who’ve been following my blog would have seen my numerous looks with red lips. I’d shied away from red lips earlier  but I’d attribute by love for red lips to my discovery of my perfect red shade – Revlon Colorburst ‘Crimson’.

Here are a few of my favorite celebrity red lips looks  in no particular order-

1. Taylor Swift

Whether its the modern-fairytale tale look with her loose blonde curls or an elegant red carpet look , she pulls off red lips with such ease. Definitely one of my favorites!

How to wear this look : Use a shimmery silver- champagne eyeshadow all over lid especially in the inner corners, thick winged black liner on upper lash line, natural brown/flesh colored liner on waterline and  lots of mascara (or better, false eye lashes ) paired with rosy pink cheeks.

2. Diane Kruger

I love her natural eye and cheek makeup in this look.Pair this makeup with a pink lipstick/gloss for the day and glam it up with a red lippie for the evening.

How to wear this look : Shimmery champagne eye shadow all over lid and inner corners, thin black line of eye liner on upper lid, natural brown liner on water line, light brown eye shadow on outer half  of lower lash line and natural defined lashes paired with rosy pink blush.

3. Kim Kardashian

Now here’s one lady who likes it super-glam!  Bold eyes +bold lips = makeup disaster but I think she pulls it off really well. This look is definitely not for the faint hearted.

How to wear this look :

Look 1 : Intense blue -grey smokey eyes paired with earthy brown blush (Like Colorbar ‘Just Earth’)

Look 2: Thick black winged liner with long , dense eye lashes (false eye lashes a must here!) , white pencil on waterline and long, defined lower lashes paired with earthy pink blush.

4. Leighten Meester 

Another one who favors the red lips look- be it casual , red carpet elegant or disastrous , she has worn it all . I personally like her first casual look a lot- its red and yet it looks quite natural!

How to wear this look :

Look 1 & 2 : Subtle flesh colored frosty eye shadow all over lid and on lower lash line, defining mascara with a hint of earthy pink blush on the apples of the cheeks.

Look 3: I would never advise anyone to wear that look 😐

5. Gwen Stefani

Here is one diva who is never seen without her signature red lips ! Be it a red carpet gala or grocery shopping, Gwen Stefani pulls off the red lips look effortlessly.

How to wear this look : Thick black slightly winged liner on upper lash line with lots of lengthening mascara paired with a hint of earthy pink on the apples of the cheeks. Any frost or satin finish eye shadow (optional)

  1. Its Taylor Swift all pics & Leighton Meestor 2nd pic for me. Though this orange red would look atrocious on me ( warm complexion)…

    • A toned down warm red would definitely suit warm complexions Rajeshwari 🙂 You could pick one with an earthy undertone..it wud not look to bright that way and suit your complexion too. I too love all of Taylor swift’s looks!

  2. gwen stefani looks like a ghost i her last pic…me love leighto meester and taylor swift though…and I have absolutely no red in my lipsy=tick collection…too scared to buy /wear them

    • Taylor Swift and Leighton Meester seem to be the favorites! I didn’t like Gwen Stefani’s look at first but it kinda grew on me. You should try a toned down red..would look nice on you..maybe a matte brick red shade like Revlon’s ‘Brick Red’ or ‘Spice Red’. You could start with bricks and then graduate to a red if you like the effect. I think Chambor Silk Touch ‘Silk Flame’ is a nice brick shade. My mum uses it 😀

  3. Sorry..can’t choose..I love all of them 😛 😀 ❤
