THAT PER­FECT RED LIP

Preview (Philippines) - - Beauty Trend Report -

There’s a say­ing that goes, “If it isn’t per­fect, it isn’t a red lip,” which we now know not to be true, but the say­ing was prob­a­bly coined in an era when women were ex­pected to be per­fect—aka the ’40s. And while we do en­joy blurred, tinted lips, there are also days that de­mand for the con­fi­dence an ul­tra-pre­cise red lip can give us. Big pre­sen­ta­tion? Cru­cial in­ter­view? Im­por­tant din­ner? No wor­ries, the power lip has your back. Start this look af­ter you’ve fin­ished your foun­da­tion be­cause the first step to an im­pec­ca­ble lip is cov­er­ing your base (in­clud­ing the edges of your lips). Step two: Lightly set your foun­da­tion with set­ting pow­der. Step three: Line lips ei­ther with lip liner, or if it’s opaque enough, your lip­stick it­self. Try NARS’ Pow­er­matte Lip Pig­ment in Star­woman (price un­avail­able, Rus­tan’s). Step four: Fill in the whole lip. Have a cot­ton bud and mi­cel­lar wa­ter ready just in case—the wa­ter-based makeup re­mover is bet­ter for spot cor­rec­tion than an oil-based one, which might smudge the rest of your face.
