There are many ways to wear a red lip. Including matte, ombré, glossy, stained, or simply a natural sheen. Depending on personal style and current trends the possibilities are endless for daytime and evening style.
This season it’s all about creating a pinker red with a more organic feel for that natural look. But how can you achieve this new look? Follow our step-by-step guide to creating the perfect modern red lip this season.
Step 1: Firstly to compliment the lip you need to apply your eye colour. For this you will need an almost-naked hint of colour on the eyes to make the lip the main focus. To create a subtle eye colour you can use a large fluffy brush to deposit the colour from lash line to eyebrow.
Step 2: Next up are the brows to ensure you get the most high-impacting lip. To create a stronger brow you can use brow powder, preferably an ash colour so they don’t appear artificial. You should use a lighter colour for the front to middle part of the brow and a darker shade for the middle to tail.
Step 3: The next step will focus on creating a glowing complexion. It’s definitely worth investing in an illuminating foundation, a light concealer for under the eyes, and a subtle rose blush to complete this subtle, natural look.
Step 4: In order to create that red lip, start with a deep wine shade and apply a satin lip pencil directly to your lips starting in the centre, blending and blurring it out with your finger. Layer this with a cherry lip colour using the same technique, softening the edges with your finger. To initially get the product on your lips use the tube, and then blend it out with your fingers. It's a great cheat to go slightly out of the lines, making your lips appear fuller. By pressing the product into your lips with your finger, it will stain the lips and make the lipstick last a lot longer.
So there you have it! Now you too can have that sun kissed L.A look re-creating luminous skin, defined brows and red lips with a berry twist for the summer season. So go on wear your red lips to suit your own style!
