ways to put red lipstick

A red lip is a classic look to go out with. Regardless of what you’re wearing or where you’re going, it is always a go-to look. This bold shade makes you look glamorous and elegant at once. 

The red lip is a Bollywood favourite and a daily necessity for many. While there are many shades of red available on the market, the perfect red lipstick depends on your skin type and the type of colour you generally prefer. 

Soft Blur

Soft blur lips have been a Korean favourite trend. While there are multiple ways to bring forward this lip look, we’ll tell you the two easiest ways you can get yours! 

Hack 1-

  1. Add a light layer of your red lipstick to your lip without using a lip liner. 
  2. Take a small makeup brush and brush the product out in a circular motion. 
  3. The circular motion will allow the product to blend and create a blurring effect, giving you the desired look. 

Hack 2- 

  1. Taking your lipstick, add a layer of red colour onto your lips. 
  2. Take the concealer of your shade and apply it all around your lip area. 
  3. Take a damp beauty blender, and blend the concealer, a little inward. Take the concealer towards your lips and let it blend with the lipstick. 
  4. The blending will result in a blurring effect. 

Vampy Red

Who loves an ombre look? We love it here and has been our go-to lip look for a while now. While this may be one of the easiest ways to pull off a gorgeous red lip, you will require two shades of red lipsticks and a makeup brush for your desired look. 

Here’s how to do it- 

  • Take the darker shaded lipstick and glide it across the ends of your lips. You may also outline your lip using a darker shaded lip liner to draw the perfect pout for yourself. 
  • Taking the lighter shade, fill in the middle area of your lips. 
  • Take a makeup brush and merge the two lipsticks, only where the lipsticks merge. 
  • To make your lipstick matte, dab some loose powder post adding a layer of tissue in between the lips and the makeup brush.

  2. Fill your lip ends with the lip liner to avoid patchy lipstick. 
  3. Using your red lipstick, glide it across your lips and fill in the colour.
