I'm a little obsessed with red lipstick as of late.
I know, me! The one who thinks lipstick makes her look like a tranny!
Well, I learned there are a few tricks to make you less like a clown and I thought I should share in case you are a red lipstick newbie like myself.
Step 1. Foundation. I know kind of weird, at least for me but do it and I'm sure it helps keep the said lipstick stay put. Also, if you are like me and have dry lips, you're gonna have to scrub those puppies to get the dead skin off (sorry, ick but it's true, and do this before the foundation obvy).
Step 2. Lipliner. I know most of you are probably, all "duh!" but I was always taught lipliner was o.u.t. but let me tell you, if you are going for the red, it ain't gonna work without it y'all. Pardon my southerness, sometimes it slips out.
Step 3. Powder. After the lipstick is on, blot and then put powder over it. This helps seal the lipstick. Do I sound like I know what I'm talking about? Because I don't but just go with it for pete's sake. I haven't blogged in awhile and am fully aware I shouldn't be giving tutorials but here ya go.
And if you need some red suggestions, I highly recommend Nars Velvet Matte lip pencil in Cruella.
Voi La. Perfect Red Lips.
