Steps For Applying Flawless Red Lipstick

Nothing screams icon, like a signature red lipstick – not only is it always in vogue, but it always gives your makeup look a pump and an instant feel of sexiness and power. How to apply lipstick is a question we’ve asked ourselves at least once in our lives or we’ve watched a lipstick tutorial here and there because it can be hard and it can get messy… BUT, we got ya covered! Here are some steps you can take to get that red pout on point!

Step 1: Prep

I know reaching for that red lipstick and applying it straight to your lips is very tempting, but hold on to your horses! Prepping your lips will make such a difference, you’ll be thanking us later! Start with your fave lip scrub to get rid of all the dead and flaky skin. Follow that with a lightweight lip balm or chapstick to keep those lips hydrated. Crusty/flakey lips? We don’t know her!

Step 2: Prime

Apply a minimal amount of foundation or concealer to your lips! The reason this is extra beneficial with red lipstick is because the nude hue will allow the red tones to be more vivid throughout the day! Hello, pigment!

Step 3: Line

The next step is to line your lips so take a couple of seconds to sharpen that lip liner so you can be extra precise with your lining. Really take your time with this step because it can be very easy to make mistakes! 1 coat of lip liner won’t be enough to keep the lipstick in place so repeat this step a couple of times.

Step 4: Fill

Now it’s time for the best part, filling everything in! Carefully fill in the lips using a brush such as an angled liner to get every nook and cranny or you can also use a very precise doe-foot applicator.

Step 5: Set

Oh, you thought you were done? Nope, there’s one more step to perfect that pout & it’s an important one. To really make your red lip last (and to keep it from smudging) set it with a little bit of powder. Lightly dust your lips with a loose powder and gently pat it in. Now you’re all set to slay the day with your perfect pout!
