Many of my readers have been asking me to do makeup tutorials for different looks that they would like to learn, so I finally decided to suck it up and do it! I have several different requests so look for those to start showing up a couple of times a week! :) Today's tutorial...the perfect red lip. Red lips can be hard to pull off, but I am going to show you in three easy steps how to apply a red lip so it will last all day!
Step 1: Line your lips with a red lip liner and then fill in the entire lip in as well. This gives you a good base AND if your lipstick fades a little during the day, you will not have that unfortunate red line rimming your lips.
Step 2: Using a lip brush, fill your entire lip in with red lipstick. By using a brush, you are applying a thinner layer than you would when putting the stick directly on the lips. Believe it or not, that thin layer will last longer than packing it on!
Step 3: Place a tissue over your lips and with a cotton ball, pat loose translucent powder onto your lips through the tissue. This step helps to set your lipstick and mattify the color as well.
Voila! A perfect red lip that you will rock all day.
Here are a few color suggestions for different skin tones:
