8 Proven tips for using red-colored lipsticks
1. Pick your texture
There are various textures available in red lipsticks- matte, creamy, glossy, crayon, and liquid. Choose the one you are most comfortable with. Also, different textures can complement different kinds of looks.
For example, a glossy red lip can do wonders at a party, whereas a matte can make for a successful office look. This is because your lipstick texture is crucial in elevating the entire look. However, textures like cream and matte go with all kinds of looks. So if you want to play safe, go with these.
2. Choosing the right shade as per your skin tone
Another tip is to consider your skin tone to find reds that sync with your skin color and undertones. We would also advise you to try out various shades of this color to know which would suit you the best.
3. Dark and deep skin tone
You can ace your look with dark and deep skin tones by avoiding dark-shade lipsticks with a white base. But you can also go with wine, chocolate, and brown-red shades. Warmer and orange-toned red shades can also work well.
4. Neutral and dusky skin tone
Medium dark shades with cool undertones complement the dusky and medium skin tones. You can play with shades that have blue and pink undertones. If looking for warmer-toned lipsticks, one can also go with reddish and orange-toned hues.
5. Light skin tone
You can play with colors like burgundy and berry very well with a light skin tone. However, for warmer undertones, it is better to go with rich colors like apricot, golden hues, or orange-red hues. They will add a pop to your lips by bringing out your skin tone in an effortless way.
6. Prep your lips
Chapped and dry lips can ruin your look. Therefore, it is crucial to prep your lips before you put on your red lipstick. First, exfoliation is the best way to ensure a sleek and smooth glide of lipstick. Next, use a good lip scrub to remove flakiness and a good lip balm to keep your lips moisturized.
7. Create a base and lip lining
To fill in those cracks in your lips, apply some concealer or foundation over your lips. It will help extend the duration of your lipstick. The next step is to line your lips. Lip liners are very important as they help create a neat outline to prevent your lipstick from getting smudged.
8. Try the blotting method
After choosing your red lipstick and outlining your lips, it’s time to get it on. One trick to effortlessly apply lipstick is to put on the first coat and blot the excess lipstick with tissue paper. After that, apply a second coat and blot again.
Now, dab some translucent powder onto your lips with a light hand to set the lipstick.
