Q. RED LIPS TO WORK? A. OH, YES you can.

There are many reasons why wearing a red lipstick may result in a total win-win situation :
Hides hangovers
Instantly brightens up the face
Alexa Chung swears by it
Never goes out of style
Looks great with any snapchat filter

But the effect of the red pout is even more pronounced when it's done with subdued coolness (aka the Parisian way).  Makeup artist Verity Griffins gives us a fresh modern take on the ineffable pout in this exclusive #SauceShoot.

Skin canvas rocked by GIORGIO ARMANI Lasting Silk Foundation. Completed with LA PRAIRIE Lapidus Cellular Treatment Translucent Loose Powder.

Face carved using BENEFIT Bronzing Powder - Hoola and highlight pinging by MAC loose pigment -Vanilla.

Brow set with L’OREAL PARIS Brow Artist Genius - Light, 01, followed by ART DECO Brow Gel in Clear.

Finally, lips pumped with TOM FORD lipstick in Cherry Lush.

The red lipstick is eternal and classic, but not all shades are created equally so as long as the lipstick has been applied with utter precision, it’s a fair game.
