There is just something sensual about wearing red lipstick. Sometimes you may want to feel bold and not blend into the wall. You want to be noticed. You also might think that you can’t wear red lipstick, that it’s not your color. Of course you can wear red! Just follow these tips to achieve your look. Go for it!
Adjust for Skin Tone
The lighter your skin, the lighter you should go on your eyes. Less make up on on your eyes and cheeks when you are pale will make the red on your lips pop and look appropriate, otherwise you risk looking like a clown or Dr. Frankenfurter. For your eyes, skip the eyeliner and wear only mascara.
Red lipstick has a tendency to bleed. This is a quick fix. Apply a light lip liner on first. No need to make it a dark lip liner; nude or the same shade as your lipstick does the job just fine and doesn’t over-power your red lipstick. Lip liner can be used as a base; just cover your whole lips with the liner. This actually helps your lipstick or lip gloss to stay on longer.
Have Fuller Lips
If you have thin lips, one trick to make the appear more plump is to line your lips just outside your natural lip line. Not too dark though, or you will draw attention to your trade secret! Plus, this look is dated and tacky.
