Try This At Home: Get Freida Pinto's Red Lip Look

Love our October cover girl Freida Pinto’s sexy red lipstick? We do, and you can pull off the look too.

Before hopping in front of our lens, Freida’s lips were painted with L’Oréal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Ravishing Red, a medium red shade that works on many skin tones. For proof, we took the colour for a test-drive. Check out our snapshots on the left!

To find your perfect rouge, look to the natural colour of your lips: If they’re pale, opt for a bright red. For medium-coloured lips, pick a warm red hue. Deep red lipstick works best on darker lips. You’ll know you’ve met your match when it perks up your entire look, making your skin and eyes appear brighter.

To keep a bold lip looking chic, go easy on the rest of your makeup. Freida’s barely there eyeshadow and groomed arches make the perfect pairing for her standout scarlet.
