One focus makeup is the ultimate trick to creating an impact without drag queening it up. I'm a big fan of the matte red lip that has been seen on every catwalk from Burberry to Prada. I sported the look last week and felt like a French film star all day. The key to perfect red lips is using a pencil to get the perfect shape, working from the center of the lip out to the sides. Start by creating a V shape on your Cupid's bow and turn it into an M shape. It can be pointed or curved, whatever suits your natural lip shape. Next, switch to the bottom lip and draw a straight line in the centre. Once you are happy that it's level, add a curved line at either side to create a wide U shape. Now it's time to draw in the corners; start at the outside of your lip and sketch back in towards to centre for neat corners. Everyone's FAVORITE matte red lipstick is MAC Ruby Woo €18
