Perfecting Red Lips & My Favorite Brands ...
First, start by exfoliating your lips to remove any dry or flaky skin. This will ensure that your lipstick goes on smoothly. Preparation is paramount for the success of a beautiful bold lip.
Next, line your lips with a red lip liner that matches your lipstick. Use short, light strokes to create an outline of your lips, starting from the center and working your way outwards.
Once you've lined your lips, it's time to apply the lipstick. Start by applying a small amount of lipstick to the center of your upper lip and use a lip brush or your finger to blend it outwards towards the corners. Repeat this process on your lower lip. If you are looking for a softer look try using your wedding ring finger and apply with a stippling motion dabbing and rolling the product into your lips, this will give you a full, beautiful finish and a completely different vibe to a structured application.
To prevent bleeding or smudging, try using a lip brush to apply the lipstick. This will give you more control and precision when applying the color.
Finally, blot your lips with a tissue and reapply another layer of lipstick if needed. Powdering through a tissue will also act as a fantastic setter. And there you have it - the perfect way to apply red lipstick and liner for a bold and beautiful look!
