How to get the perfect red lips

Your rating: None
Carrying off red lips can be tricky, however a perfectly done red lip makes the job much easier, and paired with a smokey or simple eye it definitely makes a statement.
What you'll need: 
Red lipstick
Red lipliner
Clear gloss
Lip brush
Outline your lips using the red lipliner and then fill in your entire lips. This will create a base for the lipstick and also make your red lips last much longer.
Dab the lip brush onto the lipstick and paint your lips, ensuring that you're as precise as possible.
Conceal outside your lip with the concealer and a clean lip brush. This will make sure your lipstick loosk perfectly done and will also allow you to clean up any messy edges.
Fan away the concealer using the concealer brush - you do not want the edges to look concealed or harsh.
Add a tiny dab of clear lipgloss in the middle of your bottom lips, as this gives the appearance of fuller lips and adds more depth.
Perfect red lips, every time!
