Celebrate the arrival of spring with a gorgeous but simple on-trend tomato-red lip
Celebrity make-up artist Daniel Sandler gives us the low-down on creating this season’s statement lip
Matte formulas tend to be drying, which can highlight flaws, so use a lip scrub or an old toothbrush to gently buff lips before applying a balm and leaving it to soak in for a few minutes.
This look is all about a precise lip line, so use your middle finger to tap on and blend foundation around the edge of your mouth, as this will help stop your lipstick bleeding.
Finally, using the pointed tip of a lip brush, outline lips with lipstick, focusing on defining your cupid’s bow. Then fill them in using short, light strokes. Blot using a single-ply tissue and re-apply another layer of lipstick using your brush for a longer-lasting finish.
