The key to pulling off this red lip look is to let the lips do the talking. Notice that Jennifer’s makeup is finished, yet subtle and classic–just a soft smokey eye that is a shimmery gunmetal that pays homage to the festive occasion. That’s the key to working the orange-red lipstick trend for summer.
