Colour Alert!!!! RED is never going to go out of fashion!! Just like a smokey eye, a red lip can totally transform your look & make you feel a thousand bucks. 

If you're feeling bold & brave, have a little fun with your outfit and add a red accessory! A bag, a heel, a jacket?! When it comes to pops of colour in fashion, I personally prefer to add subtle elements & keep my outfit to a combination of whites, blacks, denim, grey marl etc. But I admire those who pull off a red dress or even a jean. Looks fab!

Rocking a Red Lip however is a favourite of mine! It's powerful, it's eye catching and it brings a glow and happiness to your smile. Plus it makes your teeth look super white... Win win win! 

Below I've styled up an easy white outfit with a bright red lip and a red bag. So simple but so effective. 

If you're looking for ways to add some spark into your make up routine, ulta3 are the kings of colour! Their lipstick range, glosses & pencils are always my go to. The ulta3 Matte lipsticks ($4.50) don't move or smudge & they're moisturising throughout the day ... meaning they won't dry your lips out & get all cracky! Perfect for events when you can't run to the loo to touch up every two seconds.

My favourite red lipstick is called Rouge & I always keep a Liquid Lip ($6.25) shine on me as well for extra moister and glow (Dazzling is the colour I go for with the gloss).

What I love, is that there are no rules! ulta3 products are so well priced that I usually end up buying a few colours at the same time. I like to mix colours and create shades to suit my mood & my outfit ... Don't be afraid to try new things! Just get a brush to help you blend the lip colours. Below are some of my favourite celeb pics... I use them as inspiration before I do my makeup & go out. 

A few things I've learned over the years... 

  • Remember that if you are doing a heavy red lip, try & keep it light on your eyes. It's a little overwhelming to have both a heavy lip & a dark eye shadow.
  • Liquid eye liner is a great option to match with a red lip. A simple black line over your lash line can make your face pop! 
  • ulta3 eyeliner ($3.25) is a winner. Their felt tip eyeliner is awesome for easy application! 
  • Most importantly, try to step out of your comfort zone & play with different looks! Sometimes an added somethin' somethin' can seriously make you glow with confidence & boost your mood!
