Georgia Jagger always uses red lipstick because it makes her look “fantastic”.
The 18-year-old model – the daughter of Rolling Stones rocker Sir Mick Jagger and former catwalk star Jerry Hall – thinks a bright shade applied to the lips really accentuates a woman’s mouth.
“I think girls look fantastic with natural make-up and just a flash of red lips.”
Georgia also revealed she has to use moisturiser every day to keep her complexion fresh because her skin dries out.
“I use moisturiser every morning, especially in the winter, because my skin gets so dry.”
Georgia is one of the hottest properties in the modelling world right now, and has worked with Versace, Hudson jeans and Rimmel cosmetics.

You look in the mirror and you know something just doesn’t look right. It is an unfortunate fate for a pretty girl, but you may suffer from thin lips. Although at times this may seem tragic, in reality thin lips can look fuller with a little lip liner and some practice.
Erase your existing lip lines by covering with a thin layer of foundation or concealer. This should be the same shade you use on the rest of your face.
Draw a line using lip liner slightly above your natural top lip and along your bottom lip.
Color in your entire lip with the lip liner, staying within the new outline you drew.
Apply lipstick over the lip liner, working from the center of your lip out.
Apply lip gloss to the center of your top and bottom lip.
Admire your new full lips.

No matter what time of day it is, or how busy you are, there are certain golden rules when applying your makeup. Here is a short guide to getting your war paint right every time!
Laying The Foundations
Foundation should be the perfect match to your skin tone. Nobody looks good when they have skin the color of a pumpkin! And worse yet, beware of the tidemarks at the jaw line. Always make sure that your foundation is well blended if you want to avoid looking like you’re wearing a mask.
Top tip – if you use a shimmering moisturizer before you apply your foundation then your skin will absolutely glow!
No way! There is a huge range of products on the market for different tones and textures of concealer. Don’t be tempted to go two shades lighter than your natural color, as it will make the darkness of your skin more gray and muddy.And be careful not to lay it on too thick.
Apart from the fact that it looks like you’re wearing too much makeup, it may also damage the delicate skin beneath your eyes. Remember, you want to tint the discoloration, not mask it.
Top tip – Have a good look at the actual color of your dark circles. If your darkness is gray, lightly apply a soft pink eye shadow to the circles before applying your foundation. If your darkness is more of a blue hue, use a light peach color first instead.
Keep your powder application light by using loose powder and a big brush for application. Less is definitely more here. Make sure that you buy a good powder that will sink into your skin, rather than visibly lie of the top of it.
Top tip – before applying your powder, try blotting your foundation with a tissue. This will remove any excess oils, and help to stop you from getting ‘shiny’.

Couture in the City reader Shara asks: Q: Will hot pink lips be trendy for spring/summer of 2009?
A: Hmmm…that’s a tough one Shara. Hot pink lips were trendy in the spring of ‘07, and are making huge waves now (Rihanna is always softening her edgy look with hot pink lips), so it’s hard to say. If you are itching to try a hot pink trend, I would do it now, at the tail end of summer and before winter sets in. Check out your local pharmacy and grab a few different hot pink shades to see what works best with your skin tone. You can work a hot pink lip right now in a very fierce way with a smoky eye and a sleek but chic ensemble.
