Nothing is Better… …Than a Red Lip You’d be …

Nothing is Better…

…Than a Red Lip

You’d be surprised what a red lip can do to make you feel sexy and spicy all day long. Don’t be fooled, not everyone can pull off this look but with a few easy steps, the process just got easier.

Supplies needed: red lipliner, red lip color, lipgloss.

Application Process:
1. Completely fill in your entire lip with red lipliner making a defined line around the perimeter of your mouth. No matter the size of the lip, don’t go outside the perimeter of your mouth. The liner creates the perfect base for the red lip color.
2. Apply the red lip color on top of the liner including the inside of the mouth.
3. Blot lightly and look for any spots that may need more coverage.
4. If you want to have a really special look, add gloss on top of your lips now. Just remember that gloss is tricky, especially red gloss, so less is more. When you are dealing with high pigment glosses, you must be aware of what you eat and drink because these glosses have high smear factor. You don’t want to end up looking that that Madonna video with the red lip stick smeared across her face.

I suggest keeping red lip color accessible throughout the day and a compact, so you can make touchups as the day goes on. There is no such thing as color stay lip color, at least none that will make your lips look beautiful and luscious.

Products I like to create this look:

Sephora Jumbo Pencil- Red $5.00

Loreal Colour Riche Lipstick- True Red

Sonia Kashuk Tinted Lip Balm – Sheer Berry

Once you pulled off the perfect red lip, cleanse your face like normal and apply a balm to your lips before you sleep. There are also some great lip treatment that help keep your lips in good condition after a hard day of being fabulous.

Don’t be afraid to go RED.
