Hot Looks: How to Wear Red Lips in 4 Ways
Every girl can pull off red lips. You just need to find a style the suits you.
The Glossy Finish
If you can’t find your favourite shade of red lip gloss, dab clear lip gloss at the centre of your lips over your red lipstick. Stay away from the edges, though, as the gloss will run.
The Stain Effect
Apply lipstick to the centre of your lips, patting it with your fingertip for a stained effect. Blot with a tissue then, using your fingertip, pat on a tiny bit more product just to the centre of your lips.
Gently pat concealer all over your lips as a base. Next, apply lipstick to the inner centre of the lips, then spread the colour outwards with your fingertip.
For a longer-lasting effect, fill the entire lip with a red lip liner that matches your lipstick. Next, swipe on the red lippie and blot to remove oils that may cause your lipstick to bleed. Blot again, then apply a final coat.
