Every makeup artist I’ve ever met says there’s a red shade for everyone. That might be true but a bold crimson lip isn’t something I ever do. I love the look on others but for me, it feels like too, too much.
The way I wear red? Blotted so that it looks like I’ve been eating cherries. I still get the same flattering color but the intensity is toned down to the natural look that I prefer. Truly, it’s a look that works for all!
3 ways to do it:
- Apply just a bit of your favorite red lipstick, then rub into your lips with your fingertip.
- Swipe on your red the way you usually do. Blot down with a tissue.
- Use a lip-stain product. You’ll like Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain in Flamenco or Benefit Benetint.
