There are red lips, and then there are red lips. For a lesson in the latter, look to Irina Shayk, who turned heads on the streets of New York City last night with a high-shine crimson lip (courtesy of Pat McGrath Labs LuxeTrance Lipstick in warm red McGrath Muse) perfectly matched to her silky slip dress. A slicked-back bun meant that Shayk's makeup was afforded full focus, with Shayk's perfectly painted pout teaming with golden lids and a luminous complexion to complete her classically glamorous guise.
And while the radiant moment—augmented by diamonds that glinted from the models's ears and neck—would have induced whiplash in onlookers even if paired with a covered-up coat, Shayk opted for a more skin-centric look, her red dress featuring a duo of slits that reached toward her hips and highlighted her glowing limbs. A barely-there sandal and naked pedicure offered further legs-for-days extension, the overall look serving as a reminder that some beauty notes are classics for a reason. When in doubt this holiday season, make like Shayk and up the ante on these tried-and-true cues.
