A red lip has always been a staple in my makeup routine. Whenever I feel like adding a little drama to my simple everyday makeup look, I opt for a red lip. I’m simply a red and nude kinda girl and I’m okay with that. Finding the perfect red on the other hand is not as simple as my makeup routine; it takes countless trials and what seems to be the perfect red on someone else could read as orange or pink on you.
This look is inspired by my all time favourite red lip and it’s not as pricey as you think. For years I was convinced that nothing would ever come close to Ruby Woo by Mac Cosmetics but I was wrong. Arriba by Colourpop Cosmetics has changed everything for me; it started off as a collaboration they did with beauty influencer Karen Sarahi Gonzalez better known as @iluvsarahii but I hope it becomes part of their permanent range (I’m ordering a bunch just in case it’s discontinued).
I’ve been wearing this red for months, I get a lot of compliments when I’m wearing it and the best part is, it only costs $6.50 (it’s practically free). It’s always a hassle ordering items online from other countries but trust me, this will be worth the wait. They have a great customer support team and if your items don’t arrive for whatever reason they’ll gladly send you another or refund your purchase. As usual, I’ll link the items below.
