GO RED OR GO HOME: A RED LIPSTICK TUTORIAL + TOUCHUP TIPS

Whether it’s a red lipstick or red lip gloss knowing what to wear when wearing red is key to making the look work for you! A red lip can be worn all day, from the cubical to cocktails when accompanied by the proper beauty tones. Want to go red, here’s how! 

Begin with a sheer and luminous foundation. Apply concealer under they eyes, through the nasal folds and throughout complexion where needed. Blend concealer and foundation until the color-blend matches the skin completely. Add a loose powder to mattify skin for a longer wearing foundation application. Use a fluffy powder brush to add a warm toned blush through the center cheek for a soft wash of color. *Remember the more fluffy the brush, the more soft the color deposit. Dust the loose powder over the skin once more to diffuse the blush color and softening the look. Add your red lipstick to complete your red-lip-look!  Check out how these NYC beauty  and fashion editors rock their red lips.
