Like The Guardian's beauty expert, Sali Hughes, I love a red lip. Unlike her, I often make a right holy show of it and end up looking more Courtney Love (circa 1994) than Courtney Cox (ok, so she's not famous for a red lip, but she is quite polished. Work with me!). So I enjoyed this little video on how to achieve a perfectly polished red pout (you can also read the accompanying article, here). There are a few surprising tips in there, too, that I'm planning to try out this weekend.
Enjoy - and if you pick up a thing or two, let me know in the comments!
