According to a recent research conducted by the Manchester University, US, an average guy spends more than half of the time staring at a lady’s mouth, the moment he meets her. And if the lady is wearing red lipstick, then chances are that the guy would have his eyes fixed on her lips for 7.3 seconds out of 10 seconds. So, that would be a good reason for you to sport a red pout.
Red lips are also a rage with celebrities this season. Milla Jovovich, Diane Kruger, and Sonam Kapoor looked gorgeous wearing red lipstick at the Cannes. Teen stars such as Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez too were seen sporting the same. “If you are thinking of applying a red lipstick, you should check if it goes with your wardrobe and your skin tone,” says stylist Rajat Tangri.
“Red lips and all bright colours are ‘in’ this season, but there are certain things that you should keep in mind before you decide to paint your lips red,” says makeup artist Komal Gulati. If you are looking forward to paint your lips red, then make sure you apply lip line fixer to prevent the bleeding of the colour.
“Besides, you can also use the regular lip liners to outline your lips. If you are going for this look, you should keep in mind that you go soft with the make up on your eyes”, adds Gulati. Team up your red lipstick with matching nail paint, and you are ready to rock with the red look!
