Beauty Crush: Red Lips

  |  By Alison McGill

Red alert: YSL Rouge Volupté No. 17.

It’s all about the bold lip for spring, with juicy tangerine, watermelon and vivid fuchsia making beauty headlines. Red is also back, big time, and to me nothing says dress up and glamour like a sizzling scarlet lip. If red is a colour you love to wear, than absolutely put it on your wedding day must list—it’s sexy and seductive and look especially hot with a white dress. I have a few favourite red lippies in my arsenal (NARS Red Lizard, MAC Russian Red, Clinique Cranberry Cream Buttershine Lipstick), but was have been coveting a new one, so I tweeted Toronto makeup artist Grace Lee for suggestions. The credentials: a bombshell red lipstick that was smooth and creamy, matte. She offered a few gorgeous options like YSL Rouge Volupté No. 16 or 17 (pictured); and MAC Cherry lip pencil topped with Lady Danger lipstick. I can’t wait to try these picks! Why not give one of Grace’s picks a go for your wedding day?
