How to Wear Red Lips, According to a New York Influencer

In a trend-defining city like New York, there's endless inspiration (and opportunity) when it comes to experimenting with your look. But true beauty girls are never slaves to the trends. Admittedly, Emily Luciano of Lovely Luciano is a nude-lip girl most of the time. "I don't often experiment because I find that the neutral look works best for me, but every now and then I will explore by adding a red lip," she says. It's all about finding which looks work for you and tailoring them to your personal style. And this season (lucky for Luciano), that red lip is popping up everywhere and is cooler in tone and a little less than perfect (finger-blending encouraged).
