Pro Tips: How to Wear Red Lipstick

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and two colors are on our mind – pink and red. Pink is our favorite lipstick color when we want to create an effortless, natural makeup look. But, red is the shade we choose when we want to stand out and feel confident. You may think a red lip is only for movie stars and women who drink everything out of straws. But we’re here to show you how easy it is to create a red pout that works with your style. Keep reading for simple tips from our Global Makeup Educators on how to wear red lipstick.

Beginner’s Guide: How to Wear Red Lipstick

If you rarely wear red lipstick, here are a few pointers from Global Makeup Educators Edgar Dominguez and Hannah Hatcher. With these four steps, you’ll have a soft, kiss-friendly pout all night.

Exfoliate First – “Red lipstick looks best on smooth, hydrated, plumped lips,” says Edgar. He recommends exfoliating and hydrating your lips with our Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator & Plumper before you even pick out your lipstick shade.

Define Your Lips – Use a lip liner that is a similar color to your lipstick (try Crimson Lip Pencil). This will give your lips natural definition. Hannah Suggests lining and filling in your lips with the same shade to help create a kiss-proof finish.

Use a Lip Brush – For the most precise look, Edgar recommends using our Retractable Lip Brush to apply the lipstick. The brush will make it easier to color inside your lip pencil line.

Set It, and Go! – For a matte stay-put pucker, Hannah likes to finish her red lipped look with a little Amazing Matte Loose Finish Powder. You can use your finger to gently dab it on over your lipstick.

Choosing the Right Red Lip for You

Red lip products come in many different shades and formulations. From the classic red lipstick à la Marilyn Monroe to a more natural red lip tint, we have you covered. Here are our favorite red lip products to use for a natural, classic or long-lasting look.

Natural Reds

  • “My favorite red shade that is youthful and flattering on all skin tones is Forever Red Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain,’ says Edgar. “It has the perfect balance of coral and red, leaving you with a smooth personalized signature red that stays.”
  • Want to add a little shimmer to your candy apple lip? Product Trainer Christine Orcutt Savolis suggests topping your favorite lip product with Crabapple or Red Current PureGloss Lip Gloss.

The Classic Red

  • If you are looking for the classic red lipstick, Hannah’s pick is Cindy PureMoist Lipstick.

Long-lasting Reds

  • To ensure your lip color lasts through your romantic dinner, Global Makeup Educator Shawn Towne recommends using Lip Fixation. He says, “apply the stain from Passion Lip Fixation to your lips, then top it with Forever Pink Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain. The color it creates is really rich and beautiful.”
  • Christine’s secret to a matte red is Hot PlayOn Lip Crayon. She also likes to layer it with Forever Red Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain for added staying power. “I always say when you want a red lip, you want it to last, ” she says. “Forever Red really stays and is easy to touch up later in the day.”

falltrends

Summer is almost over and fall is right around the corner! We’re excited to share a few of our favorite fall 2016 beauty trends that inspired our Fashion Forward collection.

Shimmery Eyelids
Lustrous lids appeared all over the fall runway, and the look works well no matter your style. If you love a natural makeup look, choose a subtle taupe or brown creamy eye shadow. Pick a pink or copper hue for a flirty, feminine look, and stick to golds, silvers or lemony yellows for a dazzling night out.

Get the Look: Try our NEW Smooth Affair for Eyes eyelid primers. They double as a pearly eye shadow and can be applied with your fingers!

No Makeup, Makeup
The no makeup, makeup trend is still going strong, and well-groomed eyebrows are the best way to look polished when your makeup is at a minimum. For a softer, more natural brow, use eyebrow powder and a spoolie brush. If you already have full brows, try a brow gel. And, if you need to fill-in or shape your brows, pick up a brow pencil. Read our pro tips on how to shape your eyebrows.

Get the Look: Our NEW Retractable Eyebrow Pencils are the newest addition to our brow arsenal, and work well with all hair colors.

Dark Romance
A dark vampy lip, and soft romantic hair was another one of the big fall 2016 beauty trends. If you love the look, but want to avoid looking too goth, pair wine-stained lips with barely-there eye and cheek makeup. May we also recommend a soft, romantic hairstyle? It will keep the look from appearing too severe.

Get the Look: One word…Fetish! Our Fetish Lip Fixation Lip Stain will give you the perfect plum put with a long-lasting matte finish.

Classic Reds
A classic red lipstick never goes out of style. For fall, designers made this look more modern by toning down eye makeup, and slicking hair back. We say, a red looks brilliant with any hair style, so dare to be bold!

Get the Look: Cindy, our newest PureMoist Lipstick shade is all you’ll need for this look. (Pro tip: apply powder foundation under your lipstick to avoid feathering or smudging.)
