Stila Beso£16

This colour will suit many skintones, from olive to super-pale. It’s matt but not drying – a great everyday red.

Christian Louboutin Diva£70

A deeply saturated red with a matt finish, we like to smudge it on for a fashionably imperfect stained look.

By Terry My 17 Red£25

This is a lovely, wearable, day red with a creamy consistency that glides on matt.

Bobbi Brown Sunset Orange£27

Come summer a good geranium shade is a must – this Bobbi Brown version is one of our all-time faves.

NARS Cruella£20

When it comes to achieving a berry lip, you can’t beat ‘Cruella’. One of our favourite shades in this crayon range.

Hourglass Icon£25

Icon by name and icon by colour. This is a beautiful shade of ruby red that goes on super-matt – a fab evening lipgloss.

Smashbox Infrared£17

A great deep red on blondes – not too heavy or berry, but still dramatic on.

MAC Fashion Legacy£17.50

One of the best all-day matt lipglosses out there. All the shades are a pop of vivid colour, but we particularly love the ‘Fashion Legacy’ red.

Topshop Falling Fast£8

A little gem on the high street, ‘Falling Fast’ is the perfect coral summer lip.

Charlotte Tilbury Tell Laura£23

An orange-red that is never too bright, ‘Tell Laura’ is a seasonless formula.

NARS Red Square£20

Another crayon favourite, Red Square is Jenna Lyons’ go-to red and that’s reason enough for us.

Red Lipsticks

Red Lips

There is very little in our make-up bag as iconic as a great red lipstick. It has the ability to turn a plain outfit into something chicer and instantly more pulled-together. We love every shade from pillar-box red to a deep cherry – here are our ten all-time faves that we would buy and recommend time and time again.
