How To Wear Red Lipstick With Confidence
Drawing attention to your mouth with a crimson color may make your cringe, but it doesn't have to. With these tips you'll learn the power -- and pretty -- that wearing a red lipstick can convey.
Hollywood belleTo create the perfect classic red lip, line your lips and fill them in completely with a red lip pencil. (Try Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Liner in Red, $6.49). Then apply a bold, moisturizing red lipstick (such as Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor in Red Revival, $7.49). Blend the color with a lip brush for a more precise shape.
To make the lip look more full and give it som "pop," use a brush to dot a light-reflecting concealer onto your cupid's bow (the dented part in the top of your upper lip) and blend outward. You can also do this on both sides of the bottom of your lip. Then dot a bit of lip balm or gloss on the center of your lips. And let Mr. DeMille know that you're ready for your close-up.
