July 29 is National Lipstick Day. So put on some red lipstick and live a little! Find out how to rock red lips like Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, and Rihanna below!
A red lip can transform any dull and boring look and make it bold and glamorous. Lipstick is a must have in every girl’s beauty collection. Ask Gwyneth Paltrow and she will tell you, “Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.” After going through an abundant amount of red lip products, we hand picked our top 10 favorites. Now browse our gallery and SHOP for your favorite new bold red lip.
National Lipstick Day — How Get The Best Red Lip
To perfect the red lip, not only do you need the right shade of red lipstick, but you also need a lip liner. A lip liner will give you a crisp look and prevent the color from bleeding onto the skin and into fine lines. They also increase staying power because your lipstick will adhere to it, so less touchups are needed through out the day/night. Use it to outline your lips as a guide for your lipstick, or on it’s own.
We love Susan Posnick ColorDuo lip liner, it provides rich color, while leaving your lips moistured, and it also has a lip plumping agent! So apply this multi-purpose purpose pencil before you add your lipstick and show the world your powerful pout.
Step 2 — The Best Red Lipsticks
After you have lined your lips, color inside the lines on your lips with a lipstick. Mary Kay Creme Lipstick comes in many different red shades. All of the colors from the collection are made with a long-wearing, stay-true formula, that will leave a lightweight, creamy finish on your lips.
Step 3 Lip Gloss — A Finishing Touch
This last step is optional — it is for those who want a shiny finish instead of a matte finish. For a shiny pout, apply a red lip gloss over your lipstick. Have you ever heard of a lip gloss that uses healthy fruit ingredients that are delicious enough to eat in their formula? Well, you have now, because that is what Bite Lush Fruit Lip Gloss has done. After applying the gloss onto your lips, get ready for highly pigmented, rich, and juicy lips!
