Tips To Wear Red Lipstick:
- Prep your lips by exfoliating your lips with a homemade sugar lip balm (mix a bit of honey in 1 tsp sugar) to make it soft and smooth and to get rid of any dryness. Apply a nice lip balm to get rid of flakiness.
- Keep rest of your face makeup subtle, wear a light shade of pink as blush, and keep your eye makeup really simple, just a liner and mascara should be enough.
- Keep rest of your look neutral as much as possible, don’t clash it by wearing a bright red or coral dress.
- If you feel the lipstick is too bold, you can tone it down by using a brown or neutral lipstick on top/
- To make your red lipstick last longer, apply the first coat of lipstick, blot with a tissue, then swipe the lipstick again. This way your lipstick will last longer on the lips.
