How To: Red Lips During The Day

Red lipstick is something that, if not applied properly, can quickly become a beauty blunder, so learning the right techniques can help you become an expert at applying red lipstick. It can be worn in both day and night, for the nighttime look, you can go a bit more dramatic with it, and for the daytime you should make it look classic, clean, and simple.

 The focus should be mainly on your lips, so opt for a nude eye and simple light pink blush. As for applying red lipstick for a daytime look, start by prepping your lips with a lip primer, then line your lips with a nude lip pencil, it should be the same color as your skin tone. This will prevent your lipstick from feathering, and it keeps the color more simple than using a red lip liner. Next, apply your favorite red lipstick. Choose a lipstick that compliments your skin tone, check to see if you have warm, cool, or neutral undertones in your skin. If you have warm undertones, choose a red lipstick with an orange base to it, and if you have cool undertones, choose a red lipstick with more of a blue base to it. Now, for those of you who have neutral undertones you can wear any color that you prefer. Finally, finish the look by applying a very thin coat of clear lip gloss and you are good to go. With these tips you will be able to pull off wearing red lipstick in the daytime.
