Glamorous, sexy and bold, red lips are a statement. But how to wear red lipstick that it doesn’t make your overall appearance too heavy or even tacky?

I stand for a red lip and trust me I have tried a lot of the high street brands, from Rimmel London to Revlon and none of them looked as glamorous as a luxury lipstick.

So, first step you guessed it: invest in a high end lipstick. I opted for the Allure Velvet Chanel Lipstick in shade 57. The way the lipstick shapes the lips and the perfection with which the formula stays on for a long time is what makes the difference for me. Why invest in 5 different lipsticks that will crease all the time and cost the same money in the end?      

        Creating a Classy Cat Eye

Getting to the eye make-up now that we have picked the right lipstick. I don’t recommend a smokey eye when wearing a red lip; not even a natural eyeshadow. Instead, create a classy cat eye in intense black. If the cat eye is not really your thing, add some subtle falsies to complement the lips.

      The best hairstyles to wear with red lips

Just to set the context when I talk about hairstyle. I’m not the best at doing hair, the best things I can do are just basic: straight, curly with a wand and curly overnight with hair grips. Luckily, in this video my hair was naturally curled after washing as I was spending everyday at the sea side. When you’re wearing red lips any of these simple hairstyles work wonders; don’t need to braid it or put it up in a ponytail. You can even leave it natural, it will add that sexy hint to your look.

             What to wear with red lips?

Your outfit really much depends on the context, so I am not going to recommend any outfits, but instead I will recommend a colour palette that perfectly complements that red. These are my personal favourites, but of course there are many others that you can wear. It’s important that you feel comfortable with your choice and ready to slay the day.

Would you like a tutorial for a classy cat eye, like shown here?  I have a super easy technique that can be useful to many of you just starting out with liquid eyeliner.

Hello my favourite girls,

Are you ready for dipping into a heavenly scented article? Tell me about it! I’ve always treasured strong liqueurs bottled in beautifully shaped containers. Perfumes are my thing: I recognise particular ones by their scent and feel different types of fragrance notes. Me and my dear friend Bee, call ourselves: the noses.

Today’s star? The seductive and warm Dolce & Gabbana The One! It makes me feel powerful and glam – I believe this is all about when you’re wearing a scent. You want it to have a meaning to you and maybe become your next signature. I perfectly captured how it makes me feel in the below video: unapologetically me.

Dolce & Gabbana The One Notes

The main notes of this fragrance are vanilla, peach, bergamot, mandarine orange and lily. You might suppose it’s a rather sweet scent as it’s quite floral, but it’s not syrup sweet. It’s rather elegant and mysterious and I believe it belongs to the Chypre fragrance family as it has citrus as top notes and a mossy base. This exquisite and strong scent makes me think of a successful woman who succeeds in life and nothing can stop her. Just try it out and you will feel you have to add it to your collection. 

Tip: Order yours on Notino – they usually run lots of promotions and I find their prices better than buying in store! The delivery is super fast as well. They’re my latest discovery for beauty products 🙂

A scent is something we all perceive differently, but for me, The One is simply the scent of a girl boss.  What are your favourite fragrances? I would absolutely love to find out in the comment section below 💋
