How to Apply Deep Red Lipstick

By on March 15, 2016 in How-To, Make Up |

Well, we admit, our lips are usually red after sipping wine or nibbling on pomegranate seeds.  But sometimes, only a full-on application of cherry red or vamp lipstick will do. Getting it right is not always easy.  Don’t wait until you are getting ready to go out – practice in advance with different techniques, colors, and lipstick types.  Or come on into Halo for a make up lesson and have a pro help you find your perfect shade. Prep!  Give your lips an exfoliation a few hours before applying dark lipstick (have you tried our Jane Iredale Sugar and Butter?  The sugar side is a lip exfoliater made of, yes, sugar!). Don’t forget to moisturize and put on your sunscreen.  Dryness on lips will be accentuated by red lipstick, so moisture moisture moisture! When it’s time to go, start with a primer to prevent feathering. Line your lip with pencil to make a border to “grip” the lipstick.  What color?  There’s no need to buy liner to match every shade of lipstick you own.  Nude is the way to go – match your skin, not the lipstick.  Melissa Capistrano, Halo Palo Alto Stylist and Make Up Artist, says, “Use color-free lip liner or, my favorite, concealer pencil. These go with every lip-color you can imagine, they cover signs of fatigue in the corners of the mouth, and expand the ability to manipulate the shape of lips more than a colored liner can.” If you do use a colored liner, don’t go much darker than your lipstick shade as that can age you. Use patient, short strokes.  Start with a horizontal line under your lower lip and two dots in your cupids bow on your upper lips.  Connect! Insider trick!  Melissa suggests, “As a base, try a lip stain to intensify reds and conceal the look of fading lipstick between touch-ups.” For control, use a lip brush to apply the lipstick.  Work from the outer edges of your lip to in to give a more precise line.  Any mistakes can be concealed with a concealer and brush. Unless you are using matte lipstick, make the application last longer and look smoother by mushing your lips together. To blot or not...
