"The ultimate red lip combo for me has to be Redd lipliner and Ruby Woo Lipstick by MAC. It’s the perfect blue toned red, it makes your teeth look super white and the formula doesn’t budge so you don’t have to top it up much at all throughout the day!"

"NYX Red Tape Ruban Rouge lip liner gives a great matte base and depth, then I layer it with lashings of Chanel’s Rouge Coco Flash 68 Ultime for a high gloss finish."
