The Guide to Sexy Red Lips: How To Pull Off The Perfect Red Lip
Let’s make one thing clear: We LOVE RED LIPS. And when we say “Love”, we mean LOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVEEEEEEEE.
There’s something undeniably show-stopping about seeing a lady with red lips. The simple scientific explanation is that red lips allude to female arousal (and let’s be real, female arousal is a win-win for both sexes!).
Maybe its the seduction of her pout colored in a powerful and bright hue, or maybe it’s simply how much attention it draws to her mouth. Either way, when we see red lips, we always give them a double take.
It would only be natural that we will attack our mission to find the perfect red lip with primal notions. Meow, kitten!
The first thing to do is to go hunting for the perfect red.
The above shades from top to bottom are some of my favorites:
Once you’ve found a red lipstick of choice, try it on! 9 times out of 10, you’ll be shocked at the vivid color, but give it a few minutes, and it may grow on you! For my make up pro’s, allow the red lipstick section to be your oyster!
Invest In Lip liner
Sure, you can have red lips without the lip liner, but an alluring red lip look will have very perfectly defined lips. Once you have chosen a lip liner perfect for you, trace along and outline your lips. After, fill in with lipstick.
My favorite lip liner for red lips? Easy! Brick red via Mac Cosmetics:
Keep It Simple – the rest of your face that is ..
Case in point, our two blonde bombshells: Cameron Diaz and Lauren Conrad.
Red lips will steal all of the attention from other parts of your face.. so LET IT DO SO! Remember clown make up belongs in a circus. Don’t overcrowd your face by packing on red lips with smokey eyes or an overdone blush. Keep eye make up to a minimum of black eyeliner, black mascara, light blush, dusty eyeshadow and foundation.
The above model, Vaishali, has on Ruby Woo Lipstick coupled with Cherry Lipliner both fabulous finds from Mac. As you can see how beautiful her mouth looks, and how subtle the rest of her face is with simple eyeliner, muted eyeshadow, and light face powder. Stunning, simply stunning!
Repeat after us: RED LIPSTICK LOOKS BEAUTIFUL ON EVERYONE!
Please remember, that there is no set skin tone that red flatters. Different reds flatter different skin tones. There are so many different types of red lipsticks: sheer lighter tones, to orange reds, to darker brick shades – the trick is to play around with a lot of colors, and match what flatters your skin tone. This will mean trial and error, and that’s okay! There are so many different skin shades out there, and there plenty of red skin shades!
Though the general rule of red lips follow, feel free to experiment! You never know what shade might flatter your skin best! Cherry red tones tend to flatter fair skin tones. Olive skin tones can use fiery orange reds. Tan skin tones look amazing with bright or brick reds.
Let’s Not Overdo It With the Red
Who wears all red from head to toe?
Sexy and hot girls. Answer: Mrs. Clause and or girls who dress up as Devil’s on Halloween. Keep your red lips classy by pairing them with outfits that flatter the color, not the same monochromatic look!
Lastly, have fun! Red lips are FLIRTY!
Add a bounce to your step, eye eff others, and own the place .. because honey you do!
