Red Lips Fall Into Fashion

The classic red lip is back this season! The iconic look of the war era really turns a woman into a lady. It's a tough look to pull off and choosing the right shade could be tricky. The best possible tips I can give?

1. Wear it with confidence -- it's a bold colour, and unless you're comfortable, you won't be able to pull it off.
2. Go a little too orange, and you risk looking like you were born with a cup of coffee on your lip, and a cigarette in hand. Choose something with a blue undertone -- it'll ensure your teeth look pearly white!
3. If you know you're going to be locking lips tonight, skip the scarlet. Nothing stains worse than red lipstick, and though a man might be thrilled to brag about the lipstick on his collar, his enthusiasm will be gone so fast once he discovers his favourite white shirt is a goner.

Some celebs who really know how to work this look are Gwen Stefani, Scarlett Johanson, Dita von Teese, Anne Hathaway and Christina Aguilera.
