A passionate slick of red lipstick is all you need to bring out your inner showgirl.

Kiekie Stanners, M.A.C New Zealand National Artist, shares her red lip pro tip: "Keep a bold red lip the key feature of your makeup by wearing it with fresh summer skin. Make sure it is precise and can stay on all night by applying with a lip liner, or a lip brush such as the M.A.C No 318 Retractable Lip Brush."
