How to Wear Red Lipstick – Tips and Tricks
Here are some tips to help you achieve the perfect red lip.
- The first step is to find the perfect red. Did you know there are different shades of red? You can choose from true red, orange tones, and blue tones. Try out different shades of red to find your signature shade.
- The next step is to find the formula and finish that you are most comfortable with. Choose from matte, glossy, sheer, liquid, cream, or creamy lipstick.
- Before applying lipstick, scrub your lips using a lip scrub. You can also use an old toothbrush. This will ensure a flawless and smooth application. It also prolongs the life of your lipstick.
- Before you apply lipstick, apply a nourishing Lip Balm to moisten your lips.
- Use a lip pencil before applying your lipstick to avoid bleeding or feathering.
- We recommend “Russian Red,” a shade by M.A.C., for beginners. This red lipstick is the perfect shade for all skin tones because it’s a mix of cool and warm shades.
How to Apply Red Lipstick Perfection
- Before you apply red lipstick, you’ll need to know the basics.
What You Need
- Lip Balm
- Red lipstick
- Lip liner pencil
- Lip brush
- Face powder
- It’s important to note that if you are a beginner, a solid lipstick will be more suitable than the trendy liquid lipstick. It’s better to start with a solid lipstick and gradually transition to a liquid one.
How to Wear Red Lipstick: Step-by-Step Instructions with Pictures
- Follow these steps to learn how to apply red lipstick properly.
Step 1: Prepare Your lips
- Apply a lip balm that is nourishing, preferably prior to applying makeup. This will allow the balm time to absorb into your lips. If you have chapped lips or they are dry, gently exfoliate the skin with a wet cloth.
Step 2: Remove the Lip Balm
- After prepping your lips, do not apply lipstick. Use a tissue instead to remove the lip balm. Apply a thin layer of powder to your lips and prime with primer. This will create a dry surface for your lipstick.
Step 3: Apply the Lipstick
- Apply lip liner before applying lipstick. Apply the lip liner with a lip brush. This will make your lips kiss-proof and smudge-proof.
Step 4: Time For Your Lip Pencil
- You can use a lip pencil that matches the shade of your red lipstick in order to create a striking effect and correct unevenness or asymmetry on the lips. The pencil can be used to overdraw your lips (just slightly, yes) to make them appear fuller and poutier. Be sure to start close to your original lip shape. This looks great in photos but is a little strange in person.
- Pro tip: Do not use a lipliner that is significantly lighter than the lipstick you are wearing unless your goal is to make your lips appear smaller. Don’t go for a lip liner that is much darker than your lipstick unless you want to achieve an ombre effect.
Step 5: Blot your lips
- Apply a thin layer of lipstick and then press a tissue paper against your lips. This will absorb any extra oils. Double the life of your lipstick by doing this.
Step 6: Clean up
- You can use an angular toothbrush with concealer to sharpen and clean the lip edges. Use the brush as an eraser for a crisp, clean acidity. Dip a brush in face powder. Powder the skin along the lip edges. Translucent setting powder can be used over a tissue to make lipstick transfer-proof.
Step 7: Check for Lipstick on Your Teeth
- We make the mistake of not looking for stains in our teeth when wearing red lipstick. After applying lipstick, place a finger inside your mouth and remove it. This removes any excess lipstick that may transfer onto your lips. Make sure you do a quick check before stepping out.
