The red lip is an absolute beauty classic. Crimson lips convey confidence, strength and beauty – it’s truly amazing what a good lipstick can do. While the Old Hollywood-inspired combination of a red lip and winged liner is a staple, there are so many ways to get creative with bold red lips. Scroll through and get inspired by all of the different red lip looks and tutorials, below. From glittery eyes to colorful smokeys, there are so many ways to turn a red lipped look into something one-of-a-kind.
Smoke it out! Luna of @OpenMindFreeSoul created this intensely smoky graphic eye look. So glam. She used Urban Decay’s Underground on her eyes and NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo (a great classic red).
Why should you choose between bold eyes and lips? Rose of @RoseAndBen proves that, with flawless application, going doubly bold can make for a unforgettably stunning look. She used the Buxom’s Wild Nights shadow for the sparkly lid. Her lips are a mix of Dose of Colors’ Berry Me and Brick.
Camila Schmitz Requia added some sparkle to her look with gold glitter all over her lid. The black shadow in the outer V of her eye adds some dimension. This bold look is perfect for New Year’s Eve.
Red doesn’t necessarily mean incredibly bold. Samantha Ravndahl is sporting an ‘everyday red’ here: CoverGirl’s Colorlicious in Garnet Flame. It’s perfect for pairing with a simple eye for brunch or running errands.
Teni Panosian went for a retro, 1920s-inspired look here. That almost-muted cherry red would look beautiful on so many different skin tones. It’s a red for those who shy away from brighter tones. She used Dose of Colors’ Merlot.
Shayla of @MakeupShayla is one of those people who can rock any and every lipstick color. Here, she is wearing NYX’s Cherry Skies from the Liquid Suede line. Liquid Suede lipsticks are some of the best liquid lippies out there – they’re so affordable, not dry at all and last an extremely long time!
Carli Bybel is rocking the classic red lip combo everyone knows and loves! Maybe it’s not the most creative look in the world – Old Hollywood curls, fluttery lashes and red lips – but it is undeniably gorgeous. A timeless beauty look; it will never go out of style.
I love that you can get away with keeping the rest of your makeup super simple when you have an awesome, bright red lip. This look by @MakeupByLilit is perfect for the summer (already counting down to those sunny days!). She’s wearing Klara Cosmetics’ Kiss Proof Lips in Flaming Red.
Laura Leth paired a deep plum super smoky eye with dark red lips, above. This look is ideal for a chilly winter night.
Love Camila Coelho! This video is a great watch for beginners. She shows, step-by-step, how to create a classic red lip and winged liner.
Get into the Christmas spirit with this look by Emma Cervin! She drew a fun green glitter line on her eyes, and added a deep red lip.
This is another holiday-ready look. Sonjdra Deluxe details how to create an ombre red lip, paired with glittery gold eyes. Ombre lips are surprisingly more wearable and easy-to-create than one would think. Check it out, above.
Warm shadows pair so beautifully with red lips. @MakeupByAnarely combined warm orange eyes with brick red lips for this look. Discover what she used, above.
