💄Red lipsticks – the trend that keeps on giving!

Aug. 21, 2020
Red lips have often been likened to the infamous little black dress – a timeless aesthetic. In fact, the red lip look dates all the way back to the Ancient Egyptians who were known to crush semi-precious stone dust onto their lips to create a red hue. 
Ever since red lips have been proudly worn – for work and for play! That’s the beauty of a red lip, a vibrant shade can bring much needed glamour for a night out while a more subtle rosy red is the perfect partner to the white shirt you wear at work. 
As you can see there are plenty of different red lip looks you can sport – so many it can be hard to choose! To make your life a little bit easier we’ve taken the time to list our favourite red moments!
Red lips and a coating of gloss
The glossy red lip look was made famous by none other than the world’s most beautiful and glamorous woman, Marilyn Monroe. And who wouldn’t want to look like the sexy star of old Hollywood?
All you’ll need is your favourite shade of red lippie and a lip gloss to apply afterward. The gloss will take your run of the mill red lips and make them shine like a diamond. What’s more, adding some gloss will give your lips some much needed lubrication as you go about your day meaning you’re far less likely to suffer from any unsightly dry and cracked lips! We can practically feel the moisture in Instagrammer @houseofbeesublimate’s pic! 


A trusty rosy red 
We all want to look rosy. And there’s no better way of doing this than wearing a rosy red lipstick. Just look at Instagrammer @emkayglowin to see our point!


For the best results we would recommend starting off by lining your lips with a rosy red lip pencil and then filling in the rest of your lips with a lipstick. 
To achieve next level rosiness, you can even go a step further and dot some concealer onto your cupid’s bow and trace the edge of your bottom lip. 
A creamy and moisturizing red  
The beauty world at the moment seems slightly obsessed by all things matte. But it doesn’t always have to be matte for it to matter. In fact, red lipsticks formulated with a bit of cream will give your lips some much missed sheen. 
The cream will give your lips enough moisture to get through the day without you having to resort to applying gloss on top. We’re guessing Instagrammer @kayasungguh didn’t have to carry a lip gloss in her bag when she snapped this cute pic!


A vibrant matte red 
Remember how we said your red lips don’t always have to be matte? Well that doesn’t mean that matte lips aren’t a Godsend every once in a while!
Matte will allow your lips to wear the most vibrant and concentrated shades of red – giving you a bold and chic look! If you’re looking for a matte red lip we would recommend going all out and picking up a brick red colour – your lips will be so bright they might just stop traffic! Just take a look at Instagrammer @elinor_makeupartist to see what we mean!


Mix in some orange tones
We know what you’re thinking – orange isn’t for the faint hearted. But this doesn’t mean it should be excluded from your makeup bag! Orange lips are increasingly becoming popular in beauty culture and rightly so! Orange lips are particularly appealing on those with olive complexions – if that’s you then don’t waste any time, your perfect orange lipstick is waiting for you! Just look at how amazing an orange shade looks on Instagrammer @its.alix! 


An attention-grabbing Bordeaux red 
Who wouldn’t want their lipstick to match their favourite red wine? The Bordeaux red shade is guaranteed to turn heads while giving you a fun vampy vibe! It’s the perfect way to add some edge to your look without breaking the bank! Check out Instagrammer @nickysatanabis rocking the shade!


Best Reviews
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream 💗💗💗 @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)

Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?

Follow me on Ig for more skincare since Cherie is leaving 😭 @naturedskinv This has been an amazing journey and I’ve made soo many amazing friends. Thank you for all the love, conversations, and just overall happiness I’ve experienced on this app. I’m definitely sad, a little upset, and a dash of confused, but thank you @cheriefor giving me such an amazing confidence boost and guidance. The way the app shaped my thoughts on skincare has been insane. I’m still willing to forget this and call it a joke if y’all are! 😭 Anyways thank you again and hopefully we can stay in touch 🙏🏾

Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
