Looking to create that perfect red lip? Red lips are always going to be on trend its just a fact. Its a timeless classic look that just brings the whole face to life. There are of course lots of different shades to choose from depending on your skin tone. But pretty much most people can pull it off. Not only are there different shades but textures too which also determine how the lip will turn out. Sheer or bold? Blurred or just perfect? In this shoot I went with a perfect red lip that’s perfect for a party night out paired with gold eyes.

PERFECT RED LIP

Now to create the perfect red lip you need your lip brush, liner and a good red lippie. Remember to make sure lips are hydrated before you apply your lipstick. I used of course a Chanel lipstick for this look the Rouge Allure Velvet no2. I am definitely a more matt type nof girl plus it looks more modern and lasts so you don’t have to reapply as much.

Line lips with a liner this will stop it from bleeding and creates the definition of the lips. Apply the liner onto the edges of the lips not just to the lip itself this will create the illusion of fuller lips. Then take your lip brush if you are doing someone elses makeup and apply all over. You can go back with the liner once you have applied the lipstick to define again. To really get that lippie to last blot the lips with tissue paper and apply the lipstick again. You can do this 2/3 times this ensures longevity.

A good lip brush is definitely required here. There are different shapes to choose from but one that has flat edges or slightly angled that fits to the shape of the lip will really work here. Alternatively apply the lipstick straight onto the lips and then use the brush to fill in the edges.

Here are some of the red lip trends for SS18 from perfect to imperfect:

Happy Friday.
