Choosing a red lipstick can be a hard task. Whether it is a bright red or a bold dark red, the key is to make sure your lip color complements your skin tone. To make your red lips pop, less eye make-up will look best. Opt for bronzed cheeks, or a light touch of blush contrasted with bold lashes, or even a winged liner.

Steps for Applying:
Before you apply your lovely red hue, make sure to apply a little foundation on your lips as a base coating.
Pick a lip liner of the same color or slightly darker. Line the lips and fill in the lip a little.
Instead of applying the lipstick straight from the tube, use a lip brush for more precise application that will never look messy. For a cleaner look, take a concealer brush with concealer the same color as your foundation and outline the lips with the brush. This ensures that everything is well-blended.
With so many red lipsticks in the beauty market, it can get a little confusing when it comes to finding the perfect color for you. Don’t hesitate to go in your favorite make-up store and ask for help. Try different shades, even different brands. Wear it around for a couple hours until you find one you truly love. Remember, the purpose of make-up is to enhance your existing beauty!
