There is no better time to wear a red lip than during the holidays, especially if you’re usually a nude lip girly day-to-day. I love to wear a red lip on the days I don’t feel my best. A red lip just makes it look like you have your shit together.
Not sure how to incorporate a red lip into your makeup looks? Let the red lip be the star of the show. Minimal skin + eyes, maybe a small wing, but that’s it.
My red lip tip: line your lips with a nude lip liner before going in with your red lipstick of choice. It will make applying your red lip way less intimidating and take the pressure off of getting those lip lines absolutely perfect straight from the bullet. Clean up any mistakes with concealer on a flat brush and you’ve got the perfect red lipstick application! Oh, and don’t forget to blot for longevity.
