Red lips have been an icon of beauty and fashion throughout history. Bold red lips are a great way to pump up your Beauty look and present an absolutely fabulous, bold, and confident style to your lip. Red lips have been around since to time of the ancient Egyptians, in which era darkening lip color was thought as an important fashion aspect in society.
Before you even apply red lipstick it’s important to generously moisturize your lips with in your eyes and lip balm. Dry cracked lips don’t hold in bold color for very long and the color becomes dull.
Secondly after applying moisturizing lip balm you’ll want to apply concealer around your lips this allows to conceal and even out your skin color around your lips.
The next step is to outline which allows for contouring of the lips and will keep the color from running. Also outlining allows for a bit of contrast.
Applying lip stick
Apply your lipstick evenly and generously. If you prefer to use a lip brush, which allows for more luscious and even application try using the MAC 318 or 316 lip brush.
Some extra tips
Try out different brands of lipstick because not all brands suit every person. I have found some brands that my friends swear by tend to fade on my lips more because my lips are prone to dryness. Finding the perfect shade or brand should be a trial and error process. Whichever brand you choose red lips are sure to give you the glow and spark of confidence to your look that you are wanting. Enjoy!
