5 Favorite Red Lipsticks

…at least at the moment! I find it so difficult to choose favorite reds, because there are so many that I enjoy. Chanel Dragon has been and still remains my favorite, as it suits me the best, but there are many other reds I wear, too.

  1. Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Lacque
  2. Giorgio Armani #404 Rouge d’Armani Lipstick
  3. Illamasqua Sangers Lipstick
  4. Make Up For Ever #21 Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick

5 Eyeshadow Looks for Red Lips

Last week, a reader asked for suggestions for eye makeup to pair with red lips, as they are so bold. Though you can certainly wear a bold lip with bold eye makeup, softer eye makeup tends to be easier — these looks reflect five softer looks that work well with red lips.

  1. Neutrals with Urban Decay
  2. Soft Browns
  3. Slightly Smoky
  4. Barely There
  5. Soft Bronzes

5 Corals for Green Eyed Looks

One of my favorite ways to complement green eyeshadows is with coral/peach lipstick. There is just enough warmth to tie to the greens most commonly used and if you find one soft enough, it will complement and not compete.

  1. Bobbi Brown Bare Pink Rich Lip Color — delightfully light coral without too warmth, making it a wearable coral for all skin tones
  2. MAC Freckletone Lipstick – a soft peach with a hint of coral, a little sheerness but not too much
  3. Chanel Genie Extrait de Gloss — a glossy, semi-opaque peach coral adds color without going overboard
  4. Smashbox Splendid Lipstick — a pink-tinged coral with soft white shimmer and a glossy finish
  5. Korres #30 Liquid Lipstick — opaque and glossy, this is a soft peach with only a hint of warmth
