*Lipsticks provided by Shu Uemura
I've never been a big fan of red lipsticks because I could never find the right shade for my skin tone, to be honest i've always been scared it would make me look too over the top or it would make me look strange. After trying out the Shu Uemura "Mon Shu Red" lipstick (the one i'm wearing in the pics), I genuinely love it. At first, I was a bit worried it would be too bright for me, but surprisingly enough it actually compliments my skin tone. I was also sent the "Baby Flame" lipstick too which is a more orange/red shade, suitable for paler skin tone.
Red lips are one of the most classic make up trends, and it's huge this AW13, so i'm certainly going to wear more of it. I've combined the "Mon Shu Red" lipstick into my everyday natural make up look, which fits perfectly well. I'm loving this lipstick because it doesn't have a solid matte effect whereas, it's more transparent with a shiny finish and easy to apply. The "Mon Shu Red" lipstick has made a come back to the Shu Uemura lipstick collection, so don't miss out!
PS: Please excuse my awkward looking face, i'm really bad when it comes to taking upfront close-up shots of myself.
