Trends come and go, but red lips are forever.
A bold red lippy remains timeless through the years, gracing the lips of everyone from iconic screen siren to leading ladies of today.
"Crazy Rich Asians” star Gemma Chan hewed to the classics with her bright red lips and low chignon.
To prevent your lippy from bleeding around the contours of your lip, fill in your lips with a lip liner before applying your lipstick.

The scene-stealer in “Crazy Rich Asians”, Michelle Yeoh, kept her beauty look simple yet glamorous with neutral-toned makeup and her hair styled in glam old Hollywood waves.
Her neutral-toned trend flatters all skin tones and is surprisingly easy to achieve.
The key to pulling off nude makeup is to add dimension to your face with multiple finishes in the same colour family.
Feel free to mix a bold eye with a nude lip or barely-there eye makeup with a bold lip. As a rule of thumb, light beige colours work better for lighter complexions while tans and browns work better on deeper skin tones.
