When to Wear Bold Red, Pink and Plum Lipstick

Find Your Best Dramatic Lip Colour, Whatever the Occasion

Bold lip hues can bring a normal makeup look to even greater heights. But how do you know if you should opt for a red lip look over a hot pink one, or whether or not a vampy lipstick colour is appropriate? This go-to cheat sheet will have you practicing good lipstick behaviour, whatever your needs may be.

When to Wear Hot Pink A flirty hot pink hue, like Estée Lauder Vivid Shine Lipstick in Magnetic Magenta ($45) is still a staple, even in the cooler months. Swipe it on for a sexy date night or even for brunch with your girlfriends.

When to Wear Brick Red Always a classic, a brick red lipstick, like Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Red ($21.95), is a bright colour that adds class to any look. Pair it with your cat-eye makeup, or add it to your holiday makeup pouch to spruce up your outfit for a special event.

When to Wear Moody Plum This lipstick hue, like Mimco Garnet Lipstick ($15), works when you want to make a serious statement. Since this colour is a little edgier, reserve it for a night out with your girlfriends, and be sure to couple it with a metallic smoky eye.
