Tips On Using Red Lipstick

The lips as well as the eyes are the most important area in your makeup and that’s why the lipstick is the most popular makeup product in the world. Red lipstick is probably the best choice for those women who like to demand attention. Applying red lipstick can be very difficult and time-consuming as if not applied properly it can look overdone, cheap and unnatural. The perfect shade will make your eyes look brighter and your smile whiter and will transform you into a different woman.


Step One. Create a base
The best way to make your red lipstick stay on for longer is to dust your lips with a translucent face powder or to pat on foundation. By creating a base for the lipstick it will adhere better and the color will be more intense.

Step Two. Line your lips
It’s essential to outline your lips with a lip liner every time you apply lipstick or lip gloss, especially when applying red lipstick. Use a nude lip pencil and rim your pout very carefully. Make sure the lip pencil is sharp enough and carefully outline your lips to give your mouth a great shape and to stop your lipstick from feathering.

Step Three. Apply the first layer
To apply the red color flawlessly you should use a small lip brush as it will allow you a more precise application and will give you better control. Run the brush on the lipstick from side to side so that it has enough lipstick on it.First apply the color to the center of your lips and then slowly brush the color out towards the edges. Always apply the lipstick to the upper lip first, using as little lipstick as possible with a firm and even strokes. At the end use a cotton bud to correct any mistakes and blot your lips with a tissue to remove any excess lipstick.

Step Four. Apply the second layer
It’s essential to apply a second layer, especially when applying red lipstick or red lip gloss in order to ensure the color will last for longer. To prevent lipstick on your teeth make an “O” with your mouth and put your finger in.
