We've always known Laura Whitmore is creative but she excelled herself at Coachella over the weekend when she acquired festival ready red streaked hair without a trip to the salon or a home dye-kit. Instead she used her red lipstick to tint her locks! The MTV News presenter tweeted the picture below with the caption 'DIY hair!!! The things you can do with red lippy'.
Laura opted not to team her red locks with red lips (might have been a bit too much) but her quick thinking DIY job got us thinking; red lipstick looks great on most girls but a lot of people are too afraid to rock the bold look which means they either don't even own a red lipstick, or their red lippy goes wasted and unused in their make-up bag. We think everyone should own a red lipstick so we've put together a list of our favourites from the beauty aisles for you to try out - all the better if you love the shade and get your money's worth from the stick, but if not, you've always got yourself a new DIY festival hair tool! Win win!
