Nothing says bold and sexy than the perfect red lipstick. There is something about this color that speaks confidence while making the perfect statement. Red lipstick dates back to the classic Hollywood era where women all over were rocking this bold statement piece that has never went out of style making it timeless which you will never regret looking back. The current trend is the matte red look which is what I went for using Ruby Woo by MAC cosmetics to get this velvety red texture. You can use your favorite red lipstick that you know works well on you to achieve the perfect red lips in just 4 easy steps. Just remember to try and keep the rest of your makeup as soft and natural as possible to allow the focus to be on your bold sexy red lips!
Here are the 4 essential steps on how to apply red lipstick:
Line your lips using a lip liner one shade darker than your lipstick color. Start by applying at the center of your lips with the cupids bow on your top lip and the center of your bottom lip. This will help guide you at the next step when connecting.
Connect the lip liner starting from the outside corner of your lips connecting to the lip line drawn at center of your lips in step 1.
Apply the red lipstick directly to your lips and layer 2-3 times to get full coverage all over your lips.
Clean the outer edges of your lips with a concealer brush using minimal amount of concealer to define your perfect lip outline. This also helps to make your lips look bigger.
