Top tips for red lips
If you’re planning to paint the town this party season, what better colour to do it with than a bright shade of crimson?
A rich, red lip is the perfect partner for that new little party dress, plus it will take your look from safe to sexy in no time. So check out some of the tips and tricks you should keep in mind when you want to wear a rocking red lip that stays put…
- - Line up. To ensure your lip colour stays in place for longer, be sure to line your lips with a similar colour to your lipstick. Then fill in the area with the same colour to ensure that even if your lipstick fades, your lip liner remains as a stain.
- - Wear layers. The most effective way to ensure your lipstick stays put is to apply it in layers to make it more adhesive to the lip. Apply the first layer then blot off the excess with a tissue and repeat twice more.
- - Go the gloss. If you really want a scarlet lip that screams party-ready, simply load up your lips with a nourishing clear gloss. This will help to prevent the colour flaking off too. We like Lip Smacker® Jellies - not only are they ultra-glossy, but they smell and taste delish too!
- - Powder finish. Another way to set your shade in stone is to dust a little translucent powder over the top and apply a second coat. No telltale marks on your champagne glass – yippee!
