Best Tricks For Wearing Red Lips

7 Dec

A Girl Wearing Red LipsThere is one lipstick trend that is never out of fashion and always makes a bold statement. Any woman rocking red lipstick is sure to be noticed and is sure to be the very definition of what’s in style. While wearing this classic fire engine lipstick will add a sparkle to any beauty look, it takes some prep work to get the perfect pout.

Step 1: Find Your Shade

Who knew that there are so many shades of red? Match the undertone of the red to your skin tone. A blue-based red will pretty much work with anyone, and it has the added benefit of making your teeth look pearly white. If you are not sure if your lipstick is the right shade for you, then you can always add a layer of golden lipstick on top for a glittery evening look. Another way to change the look is by layering your favorite gloss over your crimson lips.

Step 2: Prep the Pout

If there are any cracks or dry spots on your lips, hold off on applying any lipstick until you treat them. Dip a soft-bristle toothbrush into some warm water and gently exfoliate your lips by rubbing the brush in small circles. Next, use a moisturizing lip balm to seal your skin. Avoid using matte lipstick or lip stains until your lips have completely healed.

Step 3: Line Your Lips

A common problem with wearing red on your lips is that it tends to bleed into the skin around your lips. Filling in not just the edge of your lips but your entire pout with a nude lip liner will help prevent any feathering.

Step 4: Apply the Lipstick

Using a lip brush to apply your lipstick will give you the neatest and most even look. Applying straight from the tube can often be a little messy and less precise. Work your way from the inside of your lips out. If you make a mistake and go outside your lips, a quick solution is to use a small concealer brush and outline your pout. This will cover any goofs and really make your lips pop.

Step 5: Blot Away

Blot your lipstick by pressing them against a tissue. Layer your lips with loose face powder and apply a final layer of red lipstick. This will keep your lips looking red hot all night long. Adding a touch of gold shimmer to the bow of your lips is great for a holiday or evening look.
