When MAC Cosmetics teased their makeup collection inspired by Selena Quintanilla on Periscope in May, our hearts went boom as the late singer’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga, swatched a gorgeous lipstick called “Dreaming of You.” The brick-red color is an accurate reinterpretation of the deeply saturated shade the “Queen of Tejano Music” was known to wear. It also conjured up memories of other rich, earthy lip products (mostly from the drugstore) that filled our Caboodles makeup cases when we were just teens. So you could imagine how excited we were to see this epic return of brick-red lipstick in October, when the MAC and Selena line was officially available in stores and online. According to MAC Cosmetics senior artist Cynthia Rivas, the undertone is what makes this shade so wearable and perfect for fall. “It’s a cooler undertone which compliments all skin tones and mixes well with many lip pencils,” she says. While Rivas believes that the “right” shade of brick-red lipstick “is one that makes you feel comfortable and beautiful,” the makeup pro does have a few tips and tricks on how to wear the trend with ease. “The beauty of lipstick is that it can look completely different from one application to the next, depending on how you apply,” she says. “If you’re not comfortable wearing red, you can start by dabbing the lipstick on your lips with your finger to create a stained effect and work your way up. Or you can wear the stained lip during the day and bump up the look by layering for evening.” Riva prefers matte textures for reds, as they tend to stay on longer and require fewer touchups. “But if it’s volume or fullness you seek, try the creamy/glossy formulas, which are now available with long-wearing technology,” she says. When rocking bold, brick-red lips, you’re going to want to use a lip pencil. It will define the shape of your mouth, accentuate the color, and help your lipstick last longer. For a warmer feel, Riva recommends auburn pencils. To deepen the shade, reach for burgundy or chestnut shades. Meanwhile, use cherry or pink hues to brighten up your pout a bit.
