Love That Red

Red is such a bold, dramatic color...it demands attention.  Most of the time, I go for a peachy-pink lipstick/gloss combo.  But there are times when I'm in the mood for something different, something daring.  Particularly when I'm wearing my leopard print scarf (as seen here).   
5 Simple Steps:
1) Prep with a lip scrub to ensure the surface is smooth and flake-free.  Then, apply an anti-feathering lip treatment around the edges of your lips.

2) Trace the outline of your lips with a flesh-colored liner. 

3) Using a lipstick brush, apply the color in small strokes until completely covered.  Blot with a tissue and then apply another coat of color.

4) Finish with a small dab of clear gloss in the center of your bottom lip.  This helps add just a hint of shine and gives the illusion of fuller lips.

5) Make sure the rest of your makeup is simple.  Pared down blush & eye makeup are best with a bold lip.

I absolutely love a good red lip! It's one of my favorite accessories....plus it makes my teeth look so much whiter :)
