Correct Way To Wear Red Lipstick

The correct way to wear red lipstick can be daunting for those who have never tried it before or are unsure how to pull it off. However, with the proper techniques and practice, anyone can rock a bold red lip. Here are a few tips to help you master the art of wearing red lipstick.

Correct Way To Wear Red Lipstick

Start with a clean, moisturized base 

Before applying any makeup, be sure to cleanse and moisturize your lips

Dry, flaky lips will only make your red lipstick look uneven and patchy.

Use a lip liner to define your lips 

Lip liner helps to create a clean, defined shape for your lips and prevents your lipstick from bleeding or feathering. 

So, choose a lip liner close to the shade of your red lipstick, or opt for a clear liner for a more natural look.

Apply your lipstick using a brush or straight from the tube 

A lip brush can help you achieve clean, even coverage if you prefer a more precise application. 

However, if you’re in a rush or prefer a more low-maintenance approach, applying the lipstick straight from the tube can work just as well.

Steps To Create New Year Party Makeup Look

Firstly, begin by doing your base as usual.

You can also start with your glittery eye makeup and then move on to the rest of your face makeup.

I started with an eye base to cancel out the uneven tone to get this look.

With the help of a brown eyeshadow from the Makeup Revolution Palette, I created a wing and fox eye look.

Remember to thoroughly blend it.

Then, I applied the silver glitter to finish my new year party makeup look.

Also, I added Maybelline kohl in my waterline for a bold look.

Blot and reapply for longer-lasting color 

After applying your lipstick, blot your lips gently with a tissue to remove any excess product. 

Then, reapply another lipstick layer to ensure the color is vibrant and long-lasting.

Finish with a lip gloss or balm

If you want to add some shine to your red lips, apply a clear or matching lip gloss or balm on top. 

This will keep your lips moisturized and give them a plump, glossy finish.

Choose The Right Shade Of Red For Your Skin Tone

Not all red lipsticks are created equal, and finding the right shade for your skin tone can be challenging. 

If you have fair skin, opt for a blue-toned red, such as a cherry red or bright scarlet

However, a warm, orange-toned red like a brick red or deep coral may be more flattering for medium skin tones. 

And for darker skin tones, a deep, burgundy red can be a stunning choice.

Experiment With Different Finishes

Red lipstick is available in various finishes, from matte to glossy to sheer. 

So, experiment with different finishes to see which one you prefer and which one looks best on you.

Make A Statement

Red lipstick is a bold choice and is meant to be seen. 

So, embrace your inner diva, and don’t be afraid to make a statement with your red lips.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way to mastering the art of wearing red lipstick. Just remember to have fun with it and find the shade and finish that works best for you. Happy lipsticking!
