There’s a reason Taylor Swift mentions her latest makeup obsession in her latest album several times; they “never go out of style.” Red lips have always been a classic. Timeless beauties such as Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor have rocked ruby lips more than once in their lifetimes and with good reason, of course. The red lip exudes power and sex appeal. It has even been rumored to give you an extra boost of confidence.
While red lips don’t exactly scream “summer” to me, that’s kind of the point. This Fashionista was not afraid to go bold with her makeup look. She paired perfect winged liner with a notice-me lip color. The rest of the outfit was kept simple. Our Fashionista’s head to toe black emphasized the red even more. She wore a black chiffon romper and some fold-over distressed combat boots to toughen up the girly piece.
What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To get this Fashionista’s look, you’ll need a red lip color, preferably a stain to keep the color low maintenance on these hot summer days. To get her eye look, waterproof makeup is a must-have. Our Fashionista used a lengthening mascara to separate her lashes and a black liquid liner to define her eyes. Not a pro at liquid liner? Use a piece of scotch tape to create a stencil for your wings. Line up the tape to the tail of your eyebrow using your lower lash line as a guide. Using this trick gets you perfect wings every time.
