Red Lip Perfection

The key to a beautiful red lip look? Start with a base coat across the entire lip before applying a layer of bright scarlet lip color. Remove any excess makeup using a tissue before adding a second coat. Remember, its always better to go for two light layers rather than one heavy one: it will mean pigment can hold longer. And because this shade can make the face look tired, dont forget to add a hint of pinkish red blush makeup across cheeks
