How to Achieve the Perfect Red Lip


Who doesn’t love a red lip? You know I do! A red lip can perfect any look, instant glam! No matter your skin tone you can pull this off. But only if it’s done the right way! Follow these steps and the look is yours!

First you need to exfoliate your lips so you are starting with a smooth canvas. You can mix a bit of sugar with honey and rub that along your lips or just use a soft, dry toothbrush.

Dry lips won’t hold color as long as smooth, moisturized lips will. Apply a bit of lip balm and use a tissue to dab off any extra.

Use a lip liner to outline your lips, this will keep the color from running. You can get a red liner to match. If not, you could also use some concealer and dab that around your lips.

Finally it is time to apply your lipstick! I always use a lip brush when I am doing a red lip, this gives me total control. Start at the center of your lip and blend outward.

Lastly, you can apply a gloss on top. Of course skip the step if you are going for a matte look.
