Step-by-step: red lips Add to ...

Tools:

  • lip liner in either red or a nude/sheer colour
  • lip brush
  • concealer
  • cotton swab
  • red lipstick

Cool undertones work best with classic blue-red lipsticks.

Warm undertones work best with warmer reds that contain orange.

Darker skin tones work best with purple-based reds.

Application:

Start with smooth, exfoliated lips.

Using the lip liner, draw as close to the natural lip line as possible.

Using the lip brush, apply lipstick all over the lips and over the lip liner.

To correct any mistakes, use a cotton swab with a small amount of concealer to cover excess.
