If you’re a fan of red lipstick, or simply shy away from this color altogether due to the difficulty of it’s application. Below are a few simple techniques to help you apply it. Ready…Set…Go!
First, start with clean and moist lips without any cracking or peeling. To get this, use Coconut oil or Shea butter, or an excellent brand of lip moisturizer.
Next, apply a little of your favorite foundation with clean fingers or a makeup sponge on your lips.
Define your lip line with a lip liner of the same shade or darker to create a vibrant effect.
Draw the line of your lips carefully with the lip pencil or lip liner to define and shape your lips. Remove any excess liner with a cotton ball or tissue and now you are ready to apply your lipstick.
