Life & Beauty Weekly: Expert Q+A
Red can be a little scary if you’re not used to bright makeup, but it’s easy to make it more approachable.
One way is to choose red-tinted balm or gloss rather than lipstick. The formulas are less pigmented and give lips a bright but naturally healthy flush. Line lips first in a shade slightly darker than your natural lip color to define their shape. Apply the liner only to the center portion (your cupid’s bow on top and the center third of your bottom lip), then blend it all over lips with your finger. Apply the balm or gloss on top.
