Lipstick* – MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme – ‘Good to Go’ – £16.50

I was lucky enough to be invited to a MAC makeup event last week where we were treated to a glamorous night in honour of the upcoming BAFTA awards. MAC’s senior makeup artist Cher created two red carpet worthy looks, from the subtle to the show-stopping, to give us a flavour of the techniques and products used to make sure your makeup is picture-perfect.

For Cher’s second look, she adapted the first, more natural look and focussed on key areas, adding extra glamour by smouldering the eyes and glossing the lips with a pop of colour. Swaying away from the classic red lip, Cher used MAC’s Longwear Lipcreme in Good to Go which is a stunning bright orange-red with a creamy finish. The longwear lipcremes stay true to their name so are the perfect product for lasting strong all through the night.

This colour is a gorgeous alternative to the traditional red lipstick, synonymous with red carpet glam. I love the warm, orange tones to it and the consistency and finish is really lovely. The only thing I dislike about the longwear lipcremes is the blunt end rather than the traditional tapered edge, meaning a lip brush is essential for precise application!

Have you got a favourite alternative to the classic red lipstick?

    Topshop Infared lipstick is a great alternative to the classic red lip! And it's dirt cheap too which is always a plus! πŸ™‚ xx

    I love this shade of red! I just wish I could suit it, but unfortunately pale skin, dark hair and red lips doesn't add up. But blondes look amazing with red lipstick, you're very lucky!

    Thats a beautiful shade, I've just bought 'Send Me Sailing' from the current hey sailor collection and because it's a red gloss as opposed to lipstick I think its much more wearable! x

    I have one of these from the Daphne Guinness collection and I really like it – I feel like you get a lot more product and since they're more long lasting than the average lipstick you end up using less each time. Win win!

    Ahh! This looks gorgeous. I love how it's got that tint of orange in it. A very unique shade. x
