As you buy new lipstick for your makeup collection, keep in mind that a forecasted trend for spring make-up is red lips. The season's rouges were displayed on the runway at London Fashion Week and ranged from classic red to a deep fuchsia lip color. Some of the world's most celebrated designers like Burberry, Prada and Jean Paul Gaultier focused on crimson lips for their super models on the runway.
Remember, you should always use a little lip balm before applying lipstick or gloss to mend dry lips. Wait a few minutes for it to absorb before applying any color to your lips.
Creamy scarlet: Start by applying a little of your everyday foundation or concealer on your lips. After it dries, apply your red lipstick and finish off the look with some clear gloss. For extra precision, use a brush to color your lips.
Matte crimson: To achieve this look, first trace your outer lips with a red pencil that is the same shade as the lipstick. This will make your lips look fuller. Once you have applied the pencil liner, carefully complete the look with red lipstick in a matte finish.
If you make a mistake during any part of the process, do not use your fingers to wipe makeup off. Instead, use a cotton swab and makeup remover to eliminate imperfections.
