Ruby Woo: Creating The Perfect Red Lip
January 26, 2016
The bold, red lip is never out of style, however, learning how to perfect it is another story.
Much like anything in life that is worth having, you have to practice and you have to be patient.
Red lips can make you feel confident when you’re having a bad hair day. Red lips can make you feel glamorous for a night on the town. Red lips can make you feel put together when you’re nervous for an interview.
Prime your lips with Dermalogica – Climate Control Lip Treatment. You really can’t get to 'perfection' without having the right base and foundation. Especially now in these cold winter months, you should use something that will protect your lips from drying from the harsh winds and cool temperatures.
The next layer of your base is a MUST when you want your red lip to stay put and look crisp. Use a liner to help the colour pop like Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat Kiss N’ Tell.
The lipstick you choose is visibly going to make a big difference in how your red lip looks. Sometimes using a matte colour can dry out your lips and sometimes a sheen can seem too shiny. Give THEFACESHOP – FACE IT Lesson 03 Artist Touch Lipstick Moisture a try. It has a lovely moisturizing effect and can be layered for your desired effect.
Kylie Jenner has become the queen of lips, and using a little gloss can help accentuate and create a fuller look. Use a pearly, iridescent colour like essence - XXXL shine lipgloss, 07, BIG NIGHT OUT and dab it in the middle of your bottom lip. Press your lips together and move them from side-to-side to spread it to your upper lip. This will draw the eye in and create larger, more defined lips.
