Inspired by how successful the #NoMakeupSelfie craze was in raising money for Cancer Research U.K., Herd decided to devise her own version to raise funds and awareness about lung cancer.

I've started up this #redlipstickselfie campaign, to 'Kiss Lung Cancer Goodbye' but also because my mum loved wearing red lipstick... wherever she was, the beach, swimming, shopping, she would be wearing red lipstick. It was her signature look.

Herd is attempting to raise as much money as possible for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

"The crazier the better, or it could be just in your own home. But it will all have one meaning, to Kiss Lung Cancer Goodbye!"

Herd added: "We saw how far the 'no make up' selfie went, let's see if we can do the same, or better!”
