Regardless of your hair color, one thing is certain: Red lips look hot on everyone. It’s one of the reasons why Marilyn Monroe was such an iconic figure. A woman who steps out in red lipstick appears confident and sexy. Why? For starters, not many women are drawn to such a vibrant color. Red lipstick says you’re making a statement…and you are. With a little hint of red on your lips, you’re demanding everyone’s attention in the room and making any guy there wish his girlfriend was as sexy as you. Sounds plain, awful doesn’t it?!

A red lip has to be precise. If you’re using a lipstick, first use a lip liner to line your lips, and then apply lipstick with a lip brush, blot, and then reapply the lipstick.

 Don’t forget the key to pulling off any red lip color is to have healthy nurtured lips. International make-up artist Jemma Kidd cautions, “No lipstick looks good on chapped lips and some matte lipsticks dry lips even more. Keep lips smooth and moisture with balm containing natural oils such as beeswax and SPF.” Jemma also urges that red lips will be the focus of your face, so it’s important to keep the rest of your make-up minimal.

 Read on for our list of six red-hot lipsticks and glosses.
