You don’t have to own Angelina Jolie’s lips to make the red lipstick stand out on your own face. There are some tricky ways to do it, and it’s very easy! Red lips are not something you can use in your daily life, but when there’s a special occasion, you’ll be ready to rivet the attention of everyone in the room.
One of the most important things you should do is to moisture your lips. You can use a lip moisturizer or balm. In order to make your lipstick last longer, and if you want to smooth your lips out, apply a primer.
Now it’s time to apply a red liner. The liner should match you lipstick as good as possible. Start by lining out your lips and be careful not to go outside your natural line; after that you can color it. The reason you should use a lip liner, is because it will make sure that your lips will keep their color, even if the lipstick starts to disappear.
Now apply a red lipstick which suits your skin tone. If you like, you can apply the lipstick with a brush for a better result. The beauty of perfectly created red lips is in the good contouring. If you apply the lipstick directly with the stick, you risk failing this mission. Once the lipstick is applied, take a tissue and put it between your lips. The tissue will take away the excess of the lipstick. After that, put another layer of the lipstick. This will maximize the color.
Another trick you should know about in order to create the perfect red lips, is to use some concealer. In this way you can be sure that the color will stay in its place and you won’t get chapped lips. All you need to do is dab a small drop of concealer around your lips. Then, by using your finger, pull the drop out carefully and make sure that there is no excess lipstick that might color your teeth. And, at the end, if you wish, you can put some clear lip gloss, which will make your lips shine, but if you prefer a matte effect, you should skip that.
If you follow the steps above, there is no doubt that the result will be astonishing and you lips will look perfect. Now you’re ready to conquer hearts!
