A bold red lip is a classic and timeless look that adds a touch of glamour to any makeup look. However, achieving the perfect red lip can be challenging, especially if you’re new to the world of makeup. Here are some tips to help you achieve a flawless red lips:
- Prep your lips: Before applying any lip colour, it’s essential to exfoliate your lips to remove any dry, flaky skin. You can use a lip scrub or gently brush your lips with a soft toothbrush. Afterwards, apply a lip balm to keep your lips hydrated.
- Choose the right shade: Red lipstick comes in different shades, so it’s crucial to choose the one that complements your skin tone. If you have warm undertones, go for a red with orange or yellow undertones. If you have cool undertones, opt for a red with blue undertones.
- Use a lip liner: Using a lip liner helps define your lips and prevent the lipstick from bleeding. Choose a lip liner that matches the shade of your lipstick, and start by outlining your lips before filling them in.
- Apply lipstick: Use a lipstick brush or directly apply the lipstick to your lips, starting from the centre and working your way outwards.
- Blot and set: After applying your lipstick, blot your lips with a tissue to remove any excess product. You can also set your lipstick by lightly dusting translucent powder over your lips.
With these tips, you can achieve a perfect red lip that’s sure to turn heads.
