You can flaunt your luscious lips with alluring red lip stick and dominate your parties and daily life activities with its amazing power of attraction. However, wearing red lipstick perfectly is an art that requires a little expertise.
Do not worry, given below are some simple steps to help you in wearing a red lipstick perfectly:
Things you will need to wear red lipstick:
- Foundation or concealer
- Lip balm or lip scrub
- Lip liner- that matches your red lipstick
- Red lipstick
- Lip gloss - clear or red-tinted
- Lip brush
- Tissue paper
Once you moisten your lips, apply some of your everyday concealer or foundation to a lip brush. Now, dust both your upper and lower lips with it. It helps in blocking your natural lip color, reducing undertones and pigmentation.
It is time to outline your lips. Pick a lip liner that best matches your selected shade of red lipstick. Place the tip of your lip liner right on the Cupid’s bow of your upper lip and outline it gently, smudging it for a more natural look.
Note: The upper lips’ Cupid’s bow is basically the area of your upper lip with two peaks and a valley right in the middle.
Pick your favorite red lipstick and apply it on your lips, starting from the center of your lips (lips’ Cupid’s) and working it outwards to the corners of upper lips. Apply it to the lower lip and blend with a lip brush for a more natural look.
Go through step 6 to apply another coat of of the selected red lipstick.
Apply a thin coat of lip-gloss to your lips in order to seal your lipstick with a sopping look.
Note: The application of lip gloss is optional as red lipstick is already bold itself. Therefore, make sure not to apply too much of lip gloss.
