Red Lips Like You've Never Seen Before

While we're guilty as charged of indulging in the many makeup trends that come and go, there's one product that we're going to be devoted to for our entire lives: red lipstick. Forever our beauty secret weapon, the red lip has the power to make or break a look. We count on it for those times when we just need to look great and not have to worry about it. Hey, when something works, why fix it, right?
Of course, even the most beloved classics occasionally need an update, and our go-to lippie is no exception. We don't like to play it safe when it comes to makeup, and all of a sudden, red lipstick has become our safest option. We're not thrilled to admit that we're in a red-lip rut, but there you have it. Sigh.
So, we decided to forget everything we thought we knew about red lipstick and figure out the newest, raddest, boldest ways to wear it. Click through for some seriously gorgeous reconfigurations of this classic cosmetics statement.
