During valentines season it’s all about lustrous red lips. On date nights your going to want to wear a red lip to finish off any look.
Choose Your Red;
Glossy, Matte, Tinted.. Theres lots of different finishes available.
Bright Red, Orange Red, Deep Red, Burgundy Red. The list goes on..
Wear a subtle eye make up to make the red lips the feature focus on your face.
Avoid deep reds if you have thin lips.
To prevent bleeding sculpt around your lips.
Powder your lipstick to give it a matte finish.
Outline your lips then fill them in with a colour close to the lipstick shade.
After applying, put your finger in your mouth, purse your lips around it, then slowly pull it out to remove excess color.
If using a drying lipstick be sure to apply a balm before.
