Red lips are always classic and stylish. This hot lipstick trend has stood the test of time from Marilyn Monroe to Taylor Swift. It is my personal favorite for any occasion, the grocery store, cocktail party, or Tuesday. I feel you can wear this anytime you want! The key is to rock it and have fun! You can have minimal makeup and put on a red lip and instantly give yourself a style boost. Here are some tips for the perfect red lip!
- Prime Lips. Just like painting a picture you need a smooth canvas. Start by using a lip scrub to get rid of any dead skin. Follow up and smooth with a lip balm. My favorite products for this are Bliss Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub and Fresh Sugar Advanced Lip Therapy. Go a step further by applying a lip primer! I use Nyx Lip primer, this prevents feathering and adds a base for your lipstick to stick to for long lasting wear.
- Line It Up. A great liner will help you get a precise look and add volume to your lips. Make sure you warm the product up on the back of your hand for easier use! I love Nyx Lip liner in Hot Red.
- Use a Lip Brush. Using a brush instead of going straight from the tube provides you with more control and less mistakes. I like to apply my lipstick the same way with a brush as I do with a liner, starting from the outside and filling everything in. My favorite red lipsticks are Nyx Snow White and MAC Ruby Woo.
- Clean and Perfect. I like to go back with concealer and a detail brush to clean up and highlight my cupids bow. Doing this simple step will keep your lips flawless. I also like to add highlighter to define them as well!
