Hot Red Lips 101

Earlier I mentioned my fondness for bright red lips. Believe me, there is one red lipstick out there for you, you just have to try. So when friends tell me they can’t, I say work it girl. Of course you can!

The key to rocking hot red lips is to make it your focal point. With that said, keep the rest of your makeup neutral and let those sexayyy lips do the talking. Wear red like second nature, ‘got some tips for ‘ya:

1. Exfoliate if you must. Bright and matte finish- lippies exaggerate lines and cracks. Use lip scrub or do it the frugal way. Mix 2-3 drops of olive oil with a small pinch of sugar. Rub onto lips for about a minute then rinse.

2. Moisturize and protect. Use lip balm with built-in SPF.

3. Optional. Line and fill in lips with red lip liner.

4. Apply red lipstick or gloss.

Here are my top 3 favorites:

Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Intense 45 ($19, Sephora) is semi-matte berry red.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Romantic ($8.78, Walmart) is red orange.

OCC Lip Tar NSFW ($16, Sephora) is true red.

I’ve been wearing red like a mad woman lately, here’s my FOTD m/
