A Red Lip for Winter!

As a comfortable el natural kind of girl, showing off a red lip is not something that happens often. So when the mood finally strikes I end up digging around in my draws for my emergency lipsticks. These are the ones that I've bought on a whim to test a colour, or just because I was curious and ended up loving them.

I've spent hours scrolling through Pinterest and these are my favourite red lip looks. Very plain, minimal eyes with defined brows, and of course those bronzed cheeks. Winter has always given me little bit of confidence for things like bold colours. I think it's because I feel most comfortable in cold weather and Christmas of course! 

The Beauty UK Lip Vinyl £2.99 in Ibiza is the quickest of my options. With a liquid formula and an applicator similar to the Clarins Instant Natural Lip Perfecters, you only need a couple of minutes and hand mirror. No lip liner required, the curved tip is perfect for creating sharp lines.

The Rimmel - Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick £5.49 in 01 is a classic dark red. This has a great shine to it, but can be quite drying so make sure to put a lip balm underneath. I find that using a matte balm will help the lipstick to stay in place.

The Beauty UK Lipstick £3.49 in Naughty has been such a wild card! At first I wasn't sure about the formula, but its smooth on the lips and has a lovely shine. And the colour is beautiful, a simple orange toned red with a bold kick. This is definitely more of a summer lip, but I just can't help but love this colour.

Are you more open to a red lip in winter? What are your favourite budget red lipsticks?
