This is Tricia Mann, and today we're going to talk about how to get Red Carpet red lips. The first thing you need is a primer. This is going to actually help prevent your lipstick from feathering and we're using a photo finish primer from Smashbox. You want to apply this underneath your foundation, but we're going to go ahead and apply it directly to the skin today. Apply this right around the lip area, and I'm using a brush, but you can actually use your finger, and this is actually going to act as a barrier to prevent your red lipstick from feathering. Next you're going to do a lip pencil in a red color matching your lipstick. You're going to start with light feathery strokes and gently line around the lip area. So, you're going to use your lipstick in your favorite red color, along with a lip brush for a precise application. You are going to take a little bit of your red lip color onto your brush, and you're going to apply that directly to the lip area. And that's how you do a Red Carpet red lip.
