How to Perfectly Apply Red Lipstick
If I told you the number of times I have attempted “the perfect red lip,” you’d be surprised that I still have not figured it out. Somehow I always end up smudging it by the end of the night, leaving me with an embarrassing hint of red around my lips that makes it look like I’ve been hardcore making out with some guy (which is not what happened!).
As it turns out, this was all just a result of me not knowing how to correctly apply lipstick. I always thought it was as simple as swiping on a coat of whatever color I chose. Nope! There are several steps that come before the actual application of the lipstick!
Our friends at College Candy made a really great tutorial showing how to get that perfect red lip. They also say you can use this same technique with any color lipstick so feel free to experiment!
