Charlotte Tilbury shows how to do Hollywood red lips

A pillar box red lip is probably one of the most iconic and most transformative beauty looks of all time. Here, mega make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury transforms the look of fashion stylist Bay Garnett step-by-step, pairing a red lip with chiselled cheekbones and contoured eyelids. The effect is pure, unadulterated hi-octane glamour.
