HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE’S EVE!
Red Lips are a staple this time of year, they look so festive and if you pop on a red lip with some simple eye makeup you look good to go! Here are my go to reds…
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick – Vampira
Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick – LadyBalls
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil – Cruella
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate – 107
MAC Lipstick – Ruby Woo
All of these have a matte finish as I’m terrible at remembering to reapply and I find matte is usually more long lasting than a glossy finish!
Here’s some of my previous looks using these red lipsticks!
- Always use a lip liner before applying red lipsticks! Even if it isn’t the perfect match for your lipstick it’ll help with neatness and precision!
- If you struggle with getting the perfect outline try using a teeny tiny lip brush as it’ll give more control!
- Apply a generous helping of loose powder around the outer corners of your lips before applying the lip liner/lipstick to help avoid smudging your foundation.
- Use a thicker concealer to cover up any mistakes, I like the Nars Soft Matte Concealer for this and I use it on a small flat ended brush! But make sure to clean the brush after each swipe so you don’t smudge any excess lipstick everywhere!
