Red lips are not only for winter months. You can wear a great red lip any time, as long as you do it right! Today I’m sharing my 3 tips to getting that perfect red lip.
1: Prep your lips. Exfoliating your lips occasionally will help with the application of lip products. Red lipsticks have a reputation of being drying and hard to apply. Using a lip scrub like this one from Fresh is my favorite so far. I use it about 1-2 a week; it leaves my lip soft, getting rid of any flakiness or dryness. You can also make an easy at home scrub, if buying a product for this step is not in your budget.
2. Use a lip liner. I never understood the point of a lip liner until I really used it properly. Applying a like color lip liner will help make an outline of your lips and act as a staying base for your lipstick. My favorite is from MAC. Applying lipstick over a lip liner makes a world of a difference, so this is step is definitely worth it, especially when working with a red lip.
3. Find a great red Lippie. I’ve found the Marc Jacobs beauty line to be a favorite for lip products. I love this red lippie that I got, which is a Sephora exclusive. Its consistency is easy to apply, easy to build up, not drying and long lasting. The color is perfect for spring/summer making my lips pop and complements any look.
So there you have it. With these three steps, you can be sure to always get the perfect red lip, making a statement wherever you go!
