MUFE Rouge Artist Intense in 21 would probably be my first choice, although I like it even better with a sparkly gold lipgloss on top.

When I want to feel empowered, I feel it’s all about the eyes/eye contact, so I prefer my lips to not pull focus. Therefore, I tend to go with a nude or soft MLBB shade.

MAC Red Dwarf, Red Necessity or Dubonnet. Bite Beauty VIB Rouge is a newer “powerful woman” lipstick but I don’t rely on it as much as I do my 3 “old favourites”.

Right now, I reach for Illmasqua Glissade. I wasn’t going to purchase this one since the regular Illmasqua formula gives me desert lips, but the new formula works perfectly and I get great wear. I love the matte finish and this particular colour is just glorious, enlivens my complexion, makes me feel just great.

It would have to be a red… probably Theisah Lipstick in Matador Red, and I love topping a red with a black lipgloss. One of my favourite dramatic lip looks.
