In case you haven’t noticed, red lipstick is having a serious moment in the spotlight. Granted, it’s been around for ages, but never has a red lip looked so stunning. Case in point: designers like Victoria Beckham, Thakoon and Zac Posen featured red lipstick on their models for New York Fashion Week, and they looked gorgeous.
Luckily, it doesn’t take much to get the perfect red lipstick application. After you’ve picked out the perfect shade of Lipcolour, follow these steps from The Beauty Department.
First, prep your lips by exfoliating them. You could use a wet washcloth, toothbrush or a lip scrub. Next, outline your lips with a nude lip liner. This will prevent the red from feathering out into any fine lines around your mouth.
Once the liner is in place, apply the lipstick straight from the tube. Blot your lips to create a base, or use a bit of translucent face powder on top. Apply another coat of lipstick, and you’re ready to dazzle!
