How to: Red lips

I decided to do a tutorial about red lips, since there are a lot of people who don't know how to.
A good base is vital :)

To get a good base exfoliate your lips with an old toothbrush
Than moisturize

Now let's move to how to apply lipliner (or just how I do it). A good application of your lipliner will make your lipstick last longer.

I start in the center of the upper lip



And than I continue with the sides and I fill up the upper lip.



Than I move down the sides

And again start at the centre of my lower lip
And fill it up
The result:
To check if your application is even just pretend you're blowing a kiss


So now we have applied the lipliner and we'll be applying a lipstick or a red lip gloss (I prefer gloss).

Here is a great trick for lipgloss: just put your index finger in your mouth (close) and pull out. I know how that looks like, so try not to do it in public :P


If you decided to go with lipstick here is also a great tip to remove the excess from your lips. Tissues :D


And if you don't like that very "sharp" edge of your red lips, just apply a coat of pressed powder


The result:


So that's it. It's as simple as that :) I hope I have been useful to some of you. :)

I like to blot after aplying the first coat of lipstick to create and then apply another one. I don't think red lipstick suits me, though. Thanks for posting this! I didn't know about the lipgloss trick (=
