Every woman should know at least one way to wear red lipstick. Classic, glamorous, and elegant, red lips are the perfect way to add drama to any look, for any occasion, any time of the year!
Red-y or not!
This beauty look is perfect for anyone who falls into the following categories:
You love the look of a bold red lip, but are scared of overdoing it: Have no fear! This look keeps the rest of your makeup minimal and clean so there's no risk of looking more clown than cute!
Your lips are your favorite feature and you want them to stand out: Set against your porcelain complexion, a bright red lipstick will ensure your perfect pout is the star of the show.
You love the classic look of a red lip, but still want it to feel modern: In the I-woke-up-like-this era (thanks, Beyonce), it's key to find beauty looks and hairstyles that look natural but glam. With this look, you can have the best of the both worlds!
Get the look
Start by creating a flawless base. This means applying a foundation primer to blur away pores and smooth fine lines. Follow it up by applying foundation with a foundation brush for the most natural finish,and pinpoint concealing any blemishes. Create a matte finish and set your makeup with a finishing powder.
Now comes the cherry on top - the cherry red lipstick that is! Start by moisturizing your lips as matte lipstick can be very drying. Then, line them with a lip liner pencil, starting with an 'x' at the Cupid's bow and working outwards. Once you've lined the lips, go ahead and fill them in with the pencil before topping off with your matte lipstick.
