Still stumped about what red lipstick works best for which occasion, or how to choose the right shade? We tapped the beautifying brain of celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff to get her take on just what we should be doing to get the correct crimson.

Check out what the expert had to tell us below in our rapid fire Q&A:

What makes the red lip so classic?

A red lip is old Hollywood: you think Oscars, Golden Globes, Black Tie, Holiday. Red lips are forever a timeless look whenever you want to add a little glamour in your life!

Why should we have a variety of red lip shades in our beauty arsenal?

There are various reds. Vampy, bright and subtle hues. There are also matte lipsticks, glosses and sheer textures which all are great to have in your makeup collection to reflect your mood and enhance your style.

How do we go about choosing the perfect shade of red?

I always love blue reds – they look amazing on all skin tones and make teeth appear whiter.

What are the biggest misconceptions about wearing red lipstick?

That red is only for special occasions or big events. A retro matte red lip with a little concealer, a coat of mascara and simple hair is so chic and will always make you look pulled together and flawless.

Is red lipstick ever OK for the office?

Absolutely when paired with subtle makeup!

Look out for Part Two of our interview with celebrity makeup artist, Ashunta Sheriff tomorrow!
