RED LIPS - COOL AND WARM
The Look(s): There were lot of red lips out there, some warm and bricky (50's style) and some cool and berry (40's style). Many red lips were paired with a luminous highlighted face, which is a lovely combination, especially when the focus is on the lips and the rest of the face is soft and glowing.

To Get the Look, 3C recommends: Cool Red Lipstick on the lips, a very soft application of Scarlet Peony Watercolours for Cheeks and then highlight the face with NEW!
