the perfect red lip

The Perfect Red Lip!

Red lipstick has been a classic beauty trend that will never go out of style!  Perfect your look with these few easy steps!

1) Start with clean lips.  I try and use a sugar scrub a few times a week to exfoliate.  The smoother your lips, the easier it will be to apply your lipstick!

2) Using any excess foundation left on your brush, press on to your lips for longevity and to create an even "canvas"

3&4) Start lining your lips by creating an "x" at your cupids bow area

5) Continue lining the rest of your lips (Make the application a little easier and smoother by stretching out your mouth a bit). After you line your lips, fill them all the way in with the liner.  This will help your lipstick to stay longer

6)Start applying your lipstick with the same method.  Carefully apply to the perimeter of your lips, then fill in the remainder until the entire area is filled in

7) Use concealer or foundation and drag along the edges to clean up any lipstick and to sharpen the look

I hope this helped! I used Limecrime Velvetine in Red Velvet for this look.

Stay beautiful!
