Ellis Red

We're not seriously suggesting you copy this - but we love the eat-your-heart-out-Lone-Ranger photo. And it's here to illustrate the perfect reds in the Ellis Faas collection. We've raved about this range before (Jo first discovered it in a beautique in Lille), which is created by a Dutch make-up artist who's making her mark globally. (Though not quite as fast as she deserves, we'd say).  If you don't know the range, check it out next time you're drifting through Selfridges or Liberty - or read more about her here.

She's created THE perfect red lipsticks, and this Ellis Red Set offers the easy-peasy-to-apply lip pens in her three different signature finishes:  Creamy Lips L101, Milky Lips L201 and Glazed Lips L301.  Creamy Lips is soft and velvety, with a matte finish.  Milky Lips delivers feather-weight colour that's really comfy (the formula features emollient oils). And Glazed Lips is more like a gloss, with deep colour intensity.  Like we say, they're all a breeze to apply.

Red lips are set to be THE big beauty trend for autumn - and we couldn't be more pleased:  red lips look great on most everyone.

But that's lips, mind.  Not eyes...
