How to Apply Red Lipstick. With a variety of shades and styles perfect for any skin tone, red lipstick is a great way to enhance your everyday makeup. In fact, it's a sure-fire way to turn heads and get noticed. Perfect red lips require a little expertise, however. Follow these easy steps to apply red lipstick.

Apply a light layer of liquid foundation to your lips and allow it to dry.

Dust your lips with a translucent powder to set the foundation. The foundation and powder create a smooth surface for applying the lipstick and help keep it from fading.

Line your lips with a lip liner that best matches your chosen shade of red. Lip liner keeps the lipstick from bleeding. Smudge the liner around the edges for a natural look.

Use a professional-grade lip brush to apply the red lipstick starting at the center of you lips and moving out. A little red goes a long way. Using a brush instead of the stick delivers the perfect amount of color.

Blot the first layer of lipstick lightly with a tissue.

Apply a second layer of red lipstick again beginning in the center and working out.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use bright red shades to enhance thin lips and blue or brown tinted shades of red to tone down thicker lips.
  • Choose a brand of red lipstick designed for long wear. Combined with the application methods, this ensures you have perfect red lips all night long.
