How to breathe new life into red lipstick

If you’re growing tired of your signature red lipstick, try one of these tweaks to rev things up a little ...

  1. For an intense cerise pink shade, apply a pink gloss over your red lipstick. It will lift the colour slightly without taking away any of the intensity.
  2. If you want a warmer orange-red, fill your lips with orange lip liner before applying your lipstick. The result is a beautiful blood orange shade. You can see my favourite orange lipsticks here.
  3. If you want to deepen the shade but you’re not quite keen on full-on vamp lips, dab a plum or dark brown shade over your red lipstick. Use your finger to just slightly smudge the colour on for a subtle stained effect that won’t look too harsh.
