Choose the perfect shade

There are so many different red tones out there. And it is up to you to pick the one that will suit you. If you have a light skin tone, go for a deep red. Medium skin tones should stick with red that has orange undertones, while dark-skinned girls should pick plum red shades.

Exfoliate

The number one rule for applying a bold lipstick is to exfoliate your lips first. The buildup of dead skin cells won’t end up with a smooth look. You can mix coconut oil and sugar to make your own DIY scrub for cheap. Or, you can just gently rub your lips with a wet toothbrush. This will increase the blood flow and make your lips plump. After this, apply some lip balm. When it is absorbed, it is time to apply your lipstick.

Outline the lips

For a sexy look, make sure that you outline your lips with a light concealer. Blend it well before you apply lipstick. You can use the concealer to correct the edges when you are done too. Don’t rub your lips, as your edges won’t look that perfect.

Use a lipliner

When using red lipstick, make sure that you line your lips. This will prevent the ends from smudging and define your lips. However, keep in mind that you shouldn’t overdo it. Accentuate your natural lips by going just a little bit outside of the edge.

Avoid bold eyes

The red lips are meant to steal the show. Don’t apply bold eyeshadows when wearing bold lipstick. You want to accentuate your lips or your eyes. You can’t do both at the same time. You can still wear your smokey eye, but make sure that you go for a neutral look.

Check your lips often

Smudged lipstick or stains on your teeth can look so ugly. Have a small mirror in your purse, so that you can check up on your lips often. Give them a quick touchup when you need it.
