The secret of setting your red lipstick is a combination of preparation and application. Here are 5 steps to keep your lips into place.
Step 1. Exfoliate your lips
Use a lip scrub to exfoliate your lips (like lush lip scrub in bubblegum) to ensure there are no flaxes of dead skin renting out space on your pout.
Step 2. Pat a little foundation over your lips
Use a beauty blender to pat a little foundation over your lips to cancel out lips’ natural pink.
Step 3. Use a lip liner to your lips
The lip liner is drier than lipstick and serves as a layer of color for the lipstick and serves as a layer of color for the lipstick to grab onto. ( I like glide-on lip pencil bad blood)
Step 4. Apply your lipstick
Start by applying your lipstick selectively and don’t swipe across the application of the lipstick then fill the rest of your lips (I like Kan Von D everlasting liquid lipstick in Outlaw - brick red or giorgio armani lip maestro in 400-red)
Step 5. Use a translucent powder over your lipstick
Place a tissue on your lips then dust a translucent powder over your lips with a powder brush through the tissue. This sets the color, without depositing a layer of powder finally apply a bit more lipstick on top.
Tip: to avoid having lipstick on your teeth, after applying your lipstick, put your finger in your mouth and close your lips around your finger. this should get rid of any lipstick hiding on the inner part of the lips before it makes its way to your teeth.
