Matte Red Lips look amazing but are tricky to do if you're not blessed with plump, perfectly smooth lips and a steady hand (for applying the liner). This slightly glossy stained look is one of our favorites- it's easy to achieve and very flattering, as it draws focus to the plump area of the lip.
What You Need!Edit
- Red Lipstick
How To Apply!Edit
- The trick is to apply color to the full part of your lips, then add a slick of gloss or Vaseline on top, blending the color outwards, says celebrity makeup artist Polly Osmond.
- "The line of the lip should look natural, not painted on- great for those of us worried about lip color bleeding into fine lines. In order for lips to pop, it's important to have a good base.
- Prep skin with L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Light Concentrated Primer, then go for a soft focus lip by applying the color onto the lower lip, then rubbing the top and bottom together,' she says.
