Red lipstick is glamorous and classy. But it can also be intimidating and difficult to wear. Won’t it be great if you knew 4 different ways (there are many more, trust me, but let’s keep it four for now) to rock red lips? Here goes!
I have used the lipstick Maybelline Super Stay 14 hr in Continuous Cranberry. The lipsticks have been reviewed earlier here.
As a lip stain
A lip stain is the perfect way to sport bright lips without them looking over the top. It is a great way to wear your dark lipstick during the day, or at night with heavy eye makeup.
Dab your lipstick on to lips. Do not drag, but dab with a light hand. Spread using your ring finger (the ring finger has the lightest touch). Voila you have gorgeous berry stained lips now!
As a lip stain, topped with tinted lip balm
If a lip stain is not your thing and you like glossy lips, top the stain with a tinted lip balm. Tinted lip balms tend to fade out easily from bare lips but when there is a lipstick stain underneath, the balm has something to hold on to.
The tinted lip balm I have used is Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple.
The classic matte red lip
My favorite. It looks classy and oh so glam. Line and fill your lips with a red lip liner, apply lipstick (preferably with a lip brush, for long lasting color), blot and reapply. I feel a red full mouth just instantly brightens any outfit!
Manisha had done on a post on red lips earlier. Catch it here.
Topped with gloss. Glam max!
If you are bold enough, top that matte lipstick with clear or even red gloss. Super shiny, gorgeous lips!
I have topped up the lipstick with Sexy Mother Pucker in Yummy Plum.
How do you like wearing red lips? If you haven’t tried red lipstick yet, I suggest you begin your search for your perfect shade of red. There is a shade out there for everyone! Try out Mac’s Ruby Woo or Russian Red. They say they suit everyone!
Until next time,
