Channeling Your Inner Taylor Swift

We all have those days where all we want to do is slap on a red lipstick and dance around the house with music on full blast whilst channeling our inner Taylor Swift. 

If red lipstick is on your makeup menu then I've got you covered with my top three picks, each bringing a different tone, finish and texture to the table. 

For an easy to apply, almost care/fuss free, lipstick go for the Revlon Colourstay Lipbutter in 'Candy Apple'. It looks great with a heavier eye look as it has more of a sheer finish - meaning it's possibly the one to opt for if you are preparing to brave your first time wearing red lips. For those like me, who just like to dive straight in at the deep end, how about the MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in 'Ruby Woo'. It is a cult classic amongst the blogging community, and one most people tend to try out when they are looking for a new red lippy. Ruby Woo has an extremely matte finish which, if you can handle it, can switch up your look in an instant. Some people say that this lipstick is slightly drying, so if it is one that you reaaaaally like the look of - you can do what I do and apply a touch of vaseline whilst prepping your skin.

Now, for those after a little touch of luxury, the NARS Satin Lip Pencils will be right up your street. Here I have 'Mandore' which is a gorgeous dark red/cranberry and would be absolutely stunning for those with pale or rich skin tones. I have very pale skin so this dark colour suits me perfectly! It has a very creamy formula and as the name suggests - has a satin finish. It isn't one of the cheapest options retailing at £19.00, but it feels so luxurious and is certainly worth the money!

Got any recommendations of your own? Let me know!
