Red lipstick – daring, bold and sophisticated – can incite fear in even the most bold of make-up aficionados. Which red is the "right" red? How to make it last? Can you wear red lipstick with eye make up? What can be done when it all goes wrong?

In the latest of our tutorial series, the pioneering organic make-up artist and founder of her eponymous make-up line Kirsten Kjær Weis explains to Caroline Issa how to achieve the ultimate red-lip look, with glowing skin, tamed eyebrows and the most subtle of shadow eyeliners. The results are effortless, insouciant glamour without being overpowering: the answer to all our red-lip woes.
