Pat McGrath, Max Factor Global Creative Director, said: “I’m an undeniable glamour girl so I love high impact accents of colour, and a slick of red on the lips is one of the easiest, yet most gorgeously dramatic ways, of adding glamour. I know some women can be daunted by the boldness of this look but there’s a red to suit every woman, and the trick is to use expert artistry to pick the right one.”
