she has light brown hair , very blue eyes, pale skin with pink cheeks and frecklesThank you
How old is she?
she is 28 13 but fancies red lipstick to go with the vintage dress I bought her a few weeks ago
Ah ok, it's hard to know, i still haven't managed to find a good red and I am the 'perfect' colouring for red lips! not perfect at all you understand I think trying them is the only option...
If its a vintage look, try Mac Ruby Woo. It seems to suit most people and is a lovely old fashioned matte.
If she's 13 you could start her on red tinted lip balms. A cheap way of trying reds out without scaring the horses.Nivea have one, Maybelline Baby Lips have one and NYC have one. She can build them up as much or as little as she likes. If she really wants a lipstick to feel grown up, then #17 have a Mirror Shine line - again cheap - that are sheer but there are about 5 different reds so she can have fun choosing the right one.
Barry M lip paint
Topshop Rio Rio or Infrared for a slightly more gentle shade.
Hmmm - not sure I like the idea of a 13 year old in red lipstick, except for fancy dress tbh. However, if you/she must, the MUA one pound ones have a nice shade - it says it's coral, but it's actually a rather lovely bright red.
Mac Ruby Woo or Mac Russian Red.A cheaper (but very nice) option is Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Standout.As someone else said, a tinted balm would work too - and is less mature than an opaque red. Clinique Chubby Sticks are good, but again, there are cheaper alternatives.
it's just for a special occasion- a lindy hop type thing otherwise she is a tinted lip balm kind of girl and I don't mind for this Thank you all for the suggestions- think we will look at the sheer ones
