How To: The Perfect Red Lip

15 Aug

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.

Lip Liner: Lace Cosmetics Scarlet Red

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!

Lipstick: Lace Cosmetics Mandarin Red

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:

Skin that has pink/blue undertones:

Cranberry Lipstick

Mandarin Red Lipstick

Skin that has olive/orange undertones:

Chocolate Mousse Lipstick

Coffee Bean Lipstick

You can find the products that I used at LaceCosmetics.Com (PS. there is free shipping in the U.S.).
