We know you’re already darn close to perfect, but are you looking for an easy way to be even more beautiful? Nailing the perfect lipstick look is one of the best places to start. This quick, simple, and very effective beauty tutorial will give you all the skills you need to hone your lips to perfection, whether you’re prepping for a big date, a fancy night on the town, or just looking to get a little luscious.
Simple Perfect Red Lips Tutorial
Supplies you will need to get perfect red lips:
- Lipstick of your choice (we always default to rich and sultry reds)
- Wax Paper
- Lip brush
- Cosmetic sponge
- Translucent powder
- A blush brush
Step 1: Cover in foundation
Step 2: Palette it out
For both eyeshadow and lipstick, we prefer palettes. They take up less room than the individual containers, typically offer a wide variety of colors, and often are less expensive than individuals. Lip and eyeshadow palettes are offered by many makeup brands and price ranges. Scoop out a small amount of lipstick onto the wax paper.
Step 3: Aim for Cupid
Step 4: Start in the outer corner
Step 5 (Optional): Go matte
Step 6 (Optional): The power of translucent dusting!
Taking a tissue, divide it so it is only one-ply. Place over the lips and lightly dust over the tissue with translucent powder using your blush brush. This will deposit a small amount over powder over the lips to dry the oil in the lipstick and give you staying power. Do not apply the powder directly to the lips, or you will be left looking dusty. You want just enough to mattify the lip.
And there you have it. Perfect red lips that will stop a crowd. Be sure and send us pics of you rocking your ruby reds (or blues, or whatevs). We’d love to see them!
