Sydney Sweeney recently revealed her must-have combination for the perfect red lip, and we’re quickly adding items to our cart.

The actress attended the Armani Beauty X Harper's Bazaar Dinner on Feb. 18 during the Berlin International Film Festival, and while she looked absolutely gorgeous in a black flapper-style Giorgio Armani dress, it was Sweeney’s glam that truly caught our eye.

Two days after the event, Sweeney—who was announced as the new face of Armani Beauty last month—shared her outfit on Instagram and included a pro beauty tip.

"beautiful evening in berlin with my @armanibeauty family ♥️,” she wrote. “mixed #armanibeauty lip power in shades 404 and 403 to create my new fave lip 🔥.”

Sweeney’s makeup artist, Melissa Hernandez, used Armani Beauty’s Lip Power Longwear Satin Lipstick in “Tempting” and “Fighter” (both $45) to achieve the perfect merlot-colored lips on her client.

Tons of Sweeney’s 14.4 million IG followers were besotted with her look.

“You are just heavenly 💌,” commented photographer Damon Baker.

“Gorgeous Syd ❤️❤️❤️,” added nail artist Zola Ganzorigt.

The official Armani Beauty IG account piped in with a single red heart.

“Crushed it 😍,” wrote one fan, while another person said, “❤️ You look gorgeous! Love that dress on you!”

Last month, the Euphoria actress gushed to GQ about her favorite lipstick brand. Sweeney noted that when she’s going for a natural look rather than red carpet glam, she opts for Armani Beauty’s Lip Power Longwear Satin Lipstick in “Androgino” ($45), the perfect peachy nude.
