We’ve already told you how to pick the perfect red lipstick, but now we want to show you how to make the most of your perfected pout – just in time for Valentine’s Day. While we know it’s highly likely this celebration will happen virtually, a strong red lip is just the statement to make for the big day.
Our Director of Artistry Pablo Rodriguez does a step-by-step tutorial to show how to get the red lipstick look of your dreams in four steps.
While all of our lipsticks promise long-lasting colour, these tips will help you prolong your lip look while learning how to shape and define according to your natural lip line.
Step one: MOISTURISE, APPLY FOUNDATION & SET
Always moisturise your lips before applying lipstick. This step is especially important if you’re using a matte red lipstick. Once you’ve moisturised, blend foundation around the lip line. The final stage of prep, set your lips with a light veil of Loose Powder to create a smooth base that will prevent colour bleeding and help your lip look last.
Step two: APPLY YOUR LIPSTICK
Generously apply lipstick directly from the bullet to the centre of the bottom lip. Press lips together to transfer the colour. This will help save time and create your natural lip shape. Using our NEW Lip Brush, reapply lipstick to the upper and lower lips.
