How to Apply the Perfect Red Lip

Today we shot the next round of videos for the Etiket Insider and while I am usually not the one in front of the camera, today I became the “lip model” for our Red Lip tutorial.

Now, I am completely comfortable wearing vibrant red shoes or even a bright red sweater—but red lip colours scare me! Though lipsticks look gorgeous in the tube, they usually end up looking like a completely different colour on my lips. So, if you are like me and need help figuring out which shade of red to choose and how to wear it, then this video installment is for you!  I actually stepped out of my lip colour comfort zone…and fully embraced the rich and bold shade of Bordeaux— the lip colour of the season and one that anyone can wear… even me!

Take a look at some photos from today’s video shoot:

Voila! The perfect Bordeaux lip!

I have to admit that I was a little nervous being on camera, but I took this as an opportunity to increase my comfort level because in just a couple of weeks, Simon and I will be off to New York City for Sniffapalooza…. and we are taking the camera crew with us!

Stay tuned for our latest video installments on our Youtube channel and our upcoming “Scent in the City” adventure!
