Whether your daily go-to lip is a smidgen of balm, a pout-enhancing nude or a ‘90s throwback wine hue, there’s one classic look that will never go out of style… and it’s making a huge comeback this summer.  From the most successful American beauty company- Mac, to the Italian fashion designer Dolce & Gabbana, it’s the red lip!

A bold red pucker works for most skin types, from porcelain princesses to sun-kissed beach goddesses. It always looks slightly posh when done right: i.e. careful application without bleeding, ideally with a nude liner to create the perfect outline.

Make-up artists and red lip aficionados can write volumes about how to pick the right shade for your skin tone, whether you need a vampy blood-red, a playful berry hue or a trendy coral, whether to go matte or glossy, whether to keep eyes minimal or go full-on inky black. Let’s keep things very simple this summer with these 3 foolproof and flattering picks:
