DO NOT attempt this look without a killer red lip liner. If you do, the colour will only bleed into your lip line and ruin the effect.

The benefits of lip liners are endless; not only can you create the perfect lip line (akin to Vanessa’s) but you can increase the longevity of the line and colour potency ten-fold.

Feline Flick to Outlining the lip

From finishing the eyes (left) take a sharp lip pencil and outline/fill in the lips to get a perfect silhouette.

Start by applying a razor sharp red lip pencil onto your lip line (like Illamasqua in Spell). Take the line slightly outside your natural shape if your lips need a an extra boost or if they’re uneven. Once you’ve precisely outlined the pout you want, cover the entire lip in the pencil and you’ll get the perfect base for your colour.

Paint Lips with creme colour

Paint Lips with creme colour, sticking within the lines of the liner to achieve block colour and the perfect pout.

Then, taking a lip brush, paint your creme colour straight onto the silhouette. For this I’d definitely recommend the Chanel Rouge Coco range, how could I not when she models for it!! I’d go for the shade Gabrielle which has a slightly lighter hue (this will be blocked out by the bright red lip pencil underneath).

Final Red Lip-Flick look

The final look! A feline flick with a perfect rouge pout!

Finally, take a blood red gloss like Illamasqua’s Intense Lipgloss in Besotted and focus it in the centre of the lips to make them pop.
