Regular readers of my blog or twitter followers will know how I love a strong lip. For me, there is no bigger statement than a bold, red lip.

A good red lip can suit all skintones

I only really started wearing red lipstick over the past 6-7 years. Once I realised I could pull it off, red lips with neutral eyes became my signature look. Over the past five years, I have amassed more than 30 different shades (not including my pro palettes) but I’ve found that I keep coming back to these favourites.
