Some things never go out of style, like bronzed limbs or face-framing highlights.Colours of the season are ever-changing, but a perfect red manicure complimented with a bold red lip is without question, timeless. It’s also the perfect way to revamp your favourite LBD for the festive season.
OPI have recently released a fabulous trio of nail polishes – the ‘Red Over Heels VIP Set‘ features Cajun Shrimp, Big Apple Red and Malaga Wine.
If you’re like me and can never decide between a luxe deep berry red or a super bright pop red – you’re in luck – because you can have them all!
The best part? The set is only $39.95, that’s essentially 3 for the price for 2 polishes. One for you and one for your each of your girlfriends.
As for your lips, the choice between gloss, lipstick or a clever new hybrid is all yours.
If matte, bold colour is your pick – MAC’s lipstick in Relentlessly Red is the perfect shade that sits between a classic red and a bright pink, its’ matte finish means it has great staying power.
If you’re all about the gloss, Laura Mercier has you covered with their Lip Glacé in Poppy. The perfect ruby red shade with an ever-so-subtle-shimmer, this gloss can be applied sparingly to give a rosy tint or generously applied to create a perfect red pout. It’s incredibly nourishing but not at all sticky. It’s also perfect to layer over the top of your favourite red lipstick shade to prevent drying.
If you want the best of both worlds or perhaps you’re on the fence, Dior’s Dior Addict Fluid Stick is the answer to all your [lip] prayers. Pictured here in Pandore – a bright coral-red, it is a revolutionary lip formula that has all the benefits of your shiniest gloss, with the pigment and staying power of a lipstick. The fluid stick is lightweight, not one bit sticky but packs a serious punch in the colour department, with just one swipe of your applicator, you’ll have perfect red lips. The packaging is also incredibly beautiful – the perfect addition to your evening clutch!
