Red lipstick makeup is both chic and glamorous. Here at Makeup Ideas Mag we’ll give you some makeup ideas and tips for using red lipstick for a variety of situations. Below are a few tips for using the infamous red lipstick that many celebrities also use.
First of all you have to consider the lighting. Different lighting will affect the shade of red you use for your makeup. For example, if you will be mostly outdoors then we suggest using a softer shade. For the evening you can try bolder and deeper shades.
Try to avoid using deep and dark reds if you have thin lips because this will make your lips look even smaller.
Use your natural tones to match and experiment with different shades of lip makeup. For example, if you have porcelain white skin you can use a deep red. Black hair and blue eyes also complement deep red shades. Natural contrast will have a greater affect for your makeup.
Remember when you’re using lip makeup that is bold like red then play down your eye makeup with light touches. Using only a little mascara and a toned down beige shadow will work well.
If you want to top your red lipstick makeup with gloss don’t use another shade. You can try a touch of gold to soften the hue or add a tinted pink gloss to make the lipstick more on the blue side.
For a great makeup tip you can try blending the red lipstick and using the coloring to give your cheeks a rosy glow. This will make your whole makeup look coordinated.
Try not to use red lip liner as the color will most likely not match your red lipstick makeup and the two tone shade will look strange. Instead if you insist on using a lip liner choose a lip liner color that matches the color of your natural lips. You can also apply some concealer around the border of the mouth to prevent the bleeding effect.
Remember to take your time when you’re putting lipstick on. If you rush it then it will look casual and messy. For final touches you can try putting your finger in your mouth and pursing your lips then slowly pulling your finger to remove excess color. This will help you avoid getting red lipstick on your teeth.
