My favorite celebrity from the Oscars was by far Katherine Heigl, I loved the old Hollywood glamour look. I think her hair and makeup were absolutely flawless and her dress was beautiful.
If you want to copy Katherine’s classic coral lips try:

Reader Request: Recommendations for a brick red/sheer lipstick?

m300_261.jpg 

We recently received an email from Sarah, asking for help finding a new lipstick!  So let’s see if we can help her out!

Hello Make Her Up,

I’m wondering if you have any recommendations on good, deep brick red lipstick. I’ve bought several, and they all seem to be a bit purple/cold — I’m looking for a warmer shade! It seems like most of lipstick brands don’t carry this… and it’s so flattering! My ideal shade would also be a bit sheer. :)

Thank you!
S

Well Sarah, I’ve found three for you to take a look at!  When I’m shopping for lipstick, I always turn to MAC.  I haven’t found a lipstick yet that lasts longer, looks better, or feels better. 

MAC Lipstick: Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.

Check out these three colors I’ve chosen for you – let me know if you like any of them!

You can find MAC at most high-end stores, such as Macy’s or Nordstroms.  If you don’t have any near you, you can go here to purchase these online!

$14.00

UPDATE: Here’s a response from Sarah!

Thanks so much – I’ll def hit up the Mac store this weekend and let you know how it goes!

Have a good weekend!

Another new Limited Edition, though I have to admit this looks really pretty I am addicted to anything for the lips. My problem is I buy so many I never can wear them all and my purse is getting heavy. I wonder if there is a 12 step program for lip stick and gloss addicts?

Guerlain ‘Fleur de Feu’ Kiss Kiss Stick Gloss

This spring, Guerlain has developed this innovative formula with the sheen of a gloss and the feminine gesture of a lipstick. This limited-edition Stick Gloss is encased in a slender black gold tube, and is transformed into a work of art. A lip gloss designed like a lipstick, the powerful combination of blazing pink raspberry and sleek black gold.
