No make-up look will ever be more classic than a bold, red lip. From Marilyn Monroe to Dita Von Teese to Gwen Stefani, so many iconic women have made red lipstick a mainstay in their make-up bag. That’s why I always reach for MUD’s Lady Bug Lipstick whenever I want to add a pop of color to an otherwise simple look.
While there are many variations on a red lip – from dark to light, from warm to cool, or from matte to glossy – a well-defined, velvety red lip never gets old. Therefore, it’s important to start your lipstick application with our Red Lip Pencil. MUD’s lip pencils provide the perfect happy medium between firm and soft pencil–allowing you to both draw a precise lip line and fill in the lip without any patchiness. Filling in the lip helps create a vibrant color and keeps my lipstick looking even between touch-ups without any bleeding on the lip line.
After lining the lips all you have to do is fill in the lip using MUD’s #310 Lip Brush, and voila! You’re looking like a 1920s movie star. I recommend loading up our Lip Brush with lipstick and throwing it in your purse for touch-ups throughout the day.
I find Lady Bug to be very wearable because it is neither too light or too dark and has a slightly blue undertone. This makes it perfect for a variety of different looks. Rock a thin cat eye and falsies with Lady Bug for a classic vintage look, or pair it with a little mascara and defined brows to finish off a quick on-the-go make-up. The world is your oyster!
