Easy Red Lip Tutorial & What Makeup to Wear With It

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Why should red lips be so difficult? Yeah you can do the long process where you exfoliate, apply balm, concealer, lip liner, lipstick, and gloss. But for an every day look, I have finally figured it out. And its not scary looking and overwhelming.
All I did was a line and fill in my lips with NYX lip liner in Hot Red and apply NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Plush Red. It was that easy! You could even skip the liner and this gloss is so opaque you'll still get red lips. I wanted it to be more intense, so I used the lip liner.
I find that these colors flatter every skin tone and hair color. When worn with the right makeup, anyone can pull it off.
If you prefer lipstick, try Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Red Revival.

Keep your eye makeup simple, but not too simple. Just using black liquid liner is pretty with it, but can be too simple and draw too much attention to the lips. So instead, I did a light tan gray shade all over my lid, gray in the crease, and a highlight color. I used NYX For Your Eyes Only Palette in Smokey Eyes. Then I used L'Oreal Linear Intense Liquid Liner in Carbon Black and winged it out. I used Urban Decay 24-7 Glide On Pencil in Zero (click here for a review) in the bottom. I finished off with L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara. (click here for a review)

On my face I used some NARS Laguna Bronzer to contour and a hint of N.Y.C.'s Blushable Creme Stick in South St. Seashell. I defined my brows and thats it!

What do you all think? Will you try red lips?
