The red lipstick has always been a fool-proof asset for every woman, and the work from home situation is no exception.

Since mid-March, most of the working force has been at home, following the Community Quarantine guidelines. It does not, however, stopped some companies and businesses from conducting their daily operations, and has implemented a Work From Home directive.

Everyone is isolated from each other and all we can do is conduct video call meetings via Zoom or Google Hangouts when needed. But this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look your best. Since video meetings now focus on one’s face, you can never be too prepared.

And when it comes to grabbing attention, a red lip is a sure way to keep everyone locked on what you have to say. Here are five red lippies that will surely help you ace your next meeting:

Sunnies Face Fluffmatte in MAJOR & HOT SAUCE

Let’s face it, who hasn’t heard of Sunnies? From top-of-the-line products to well-curated marketing campaigns, this brand has instantly become a crowd-favorite since it was first launched in 2018.

If you’re looking for a lippie with a good color pay-off, then Sunnies Face Fluffmate in MAJOR is the way to go! It’s great for fair, tan, or dark skin tones, so it will look great on you while you meet with colleagues.
