It's been a while since we've thought about wearing bold makeup, but you can't have #hotgirlsummer without a hot red lip to go with it. Megan Fox is known for pulling off the ultimate red lip and now you can use her go-to brand to do the same.
Fox took to Instagram to share her flawless makeup and bouncy waves, but what really caught our attention was the bright red lip that's starting to make a reappearance this season. After going makeup-less for over a year, the only beauty product we were concerned about is the best retinol serums for anti-aging. Now that lockdowns have been lifted though, it's time to embrace bold makeup.

If you're wondering how you can recreate Megan Fox's iconic red lips, look no further than Nordstrom. It's no secret that Fox is a fan of bareMinerals—it's even her go-to brand for her signature red lip look. Fox's makeup artist, Tobi Henney, originally shared the actress's makeup look in a highlight on social media. This included bareMinerals' BAREPRO Longwear Lipstick, which is currently on sale at Nordstrom.

How to do Megan Fox's signature red lip
It's actually easier (and more affordable) than you think. To begin, Tobi Henney uses an essential drugstore buy: Aquaphor Healing Ointment to help create a smooth and hydrated lip. From there, she lines Fox's lip with a lip liner to help define and shape her pout. Now comes the most important part, applying the perfect red shade. For Megan Fox, that's bareMinerals BASEPRO Longwear Lipstick in "Cranberry".
The formula was made to be creamy for an easier application and includes baobab and berry oils, sunflower seed, and jojoba waxes infused with gel that aim to nourish lips and create a long-lasting wear. (It's smudge-free, too, of course). The lipstick is also free of parabens, phthalates, fragrance and talc, so you can feel more confident swiping this on.
Typically you can score this shade for $20, but for a limited-time, Nordstrom is offering the lipstick on sale for $17, so you won't want to miss out!
