How to Wear Red Lipstick: 7 Easy Tips

1. Decide which look you want. Wearing red lips with matte skin will give you a retro look, and wearing red lips with dewy skin will give you a more modern look. 2. If you want the matte look, apply a liquid foundation all over the face in a thin layer. You can use a slightly damp wedge sponge applicator to apply the foundation. Go back over it with powder. Use a really fluffy brush to make the most natural finish. If you have severe discoloration such as dark spots, redness or acne, apply some concealer before the foundation. 3. If you wear the retro look, you may want to add a little bit of blush on your cheeks to keep your face from looking too bland. 4. If you want the dewy look, apply a moisturizer or better yet a tinted moisturizer to your face. Skip the foundation unless you mix it with a drop or moisturizer. 5. Next, apply your lipstick. If the lipstick is too shiny, tap your lips to bring down the shine. You can also apply a small amount of foundation, concealer, or powder on your lips, then apply your lipstick over it. This makes your lips look matte, and the color will last a little longer. 6. If your lipstick isn’t glossy enough, put a touch of lip gloss on your lips, and pat it in with your finger. Or you can apply lip balm first, then apply the lipstick. 7. Finish with a coat of mascara to open the eyes.
