How to Wear Red Lips by Christen Mellor of CHANEL

Confused about color? Which red is right for you? CHANEL’s Christen Mellor tells us which shade is the most versatile and how to wear red the right way.

Christen's TIPS:

  • When wearing a bold lip keep eye shadows light and natural.
  • Blend eye shadow with a brush that has no pigment for a soft nice natural blend.
  • Winged eyeliner how to demo, after watching this video I realized I was applying it backwards...doh!
  • If you have trouble wearing red lips then Chanel’s 135 ENIGMATIQUE is the color for you. Anyone can wear this color and it’s not too bold for the office.

  • Red lips are perfect for a nude eye, No liner or mascara needed for a fresh 5 minute face. The key is the blush color must carry the red. Here’s all you need:

Eye – Nude shimmering CONVOITISE 90


Blush – JERSEY 80

Wear this face on weekends with jeans and a tee shirt.

  • Notice when women appear to be wearing too much blush? The cause is lack of balance. Balance out cheeks with a swipe of blush in the hair line.
  • Keep liner from seeping into lip cracks by applying a light dusting of face powder.
