I am here again for another How To and Makeup 101 blog post. I’ll be combining them in one post since, I have to be honest, I’m having backlogs when it comes to posts that I need to publish. I do apologize for that as I have been really busy lately with a lot of things. Moving forward, I decided to create this post mainly to help all you girls (and boys) out there who are afraid to stand out wearing red lipstick…
Red lipstick is a universal classic and has yet to go out of style. Yet many women assume they can’t wear it. They’re wrong. On this post, I will be showing you how to sport that classic red lipstick.
Rule No. 1: The secret is already on your face
The paler the skin, the bigger the pop. Go light on the eyes and the blush, otherwise you’ll risk looking like a clown. Never mind the eyeliner and go only for mascara (black for brunettes, brown for blondes and redheads). Make sure to apply to bottom lashes as this will help to open up your eyes. Dust off the face with powder and cheeks with a soft blush.
Rule No. 2: Line inside of lips
Red lipstick tends to bleed, so fill in lips with lip liner first. There are also a lot of tricks as so not to have the red lipstick bleed. If you wanna learn more, come and join our makeup workshop!!!
Rule No. 3: Pick the right color
Believe it or not, there are a lot of red shades when it comes to the makeup world. There are also a lot of finishes, from matte to satin, you name it. If your complexion is pink, you’ll look better in plum shades. For women with yellow tones, warmer reds with a hint of brown are more flattering.
Rule No. 4: Red Lips with Red Nails? BIG NO NO!!!
If you’re going for that red lipstick, don’t reach out for your red nail polish for your nail color.A clear polish or light color is cool, and dark polish is a trend that shows no sign of going away anytime soon.
Rule No. 5: Choose lighter shades as you grow old
Our lips thin as we age and dark lips can accentuate them. To keep lips from looking too severe, try a rosy red or avoid red lips altogether and opt for a neutral shade, playing up your eyes instead.
