This is the season of red and autumn/winter has seen many classic beauty trends come to the fore once again but perhaps the most impactful of them all is the return of the red lip. It is somehow as slipping in a LBD: classy and sexy forever. But how to wear it and when? Is it ok on all lips shapes? What about the right shade? In fact there are many shades of red.
Keep The Rest Of Your Beauty Look Minimal
You can let a bright pink lip pair with a navy sweater, or a neon orange lip with a camel coat. All you have to do is make sure your lips make the statement. If you want to transition your favorite lip shade from spring and summer, make sure you keep the rest of your beauty look minimal. Keeping your eyeshadow light, and your face fresh without over-contouring will make your bright, shiny lip look appropriate for the season.
Add lip liner
Lip liner is of prime importance when wearing red lipstick, the reason being that the liner will make the lipstick stay in place, prevent bleeding lipstick, and when the stark red color fades off, you will be left with some color on the lips, red lipsticks can be kind of unforgiving hence red lip liner will help you shape the lips, and also create a flawless base.
Wear A Neutral-Colored Outfit
It helps if you wear an ensemble made up of neutral shades and high quality, textured fabrics. You can also let your bright, neon lip elevate a dark wardrobe or oversized, extra cozy outfits.
Check and touch up often
Red lips can be unforgiving in terms of smudging and leaving your lips bare at places, who knows, after a meal. It is a good idea to check the lipstick often and touch up gently with fingers if needed. Smudge the liner well with lipstick is wearing it often during the day, avoid a red stark lip outline.
Keep nails nude
I mean, red lips and red nails are chic, but can be too vampy, and will be most tragic if the reds do not match. Go clean and neat on the nails, a nude polish will do wonders.
Which shade is the right one?
Not too orange and not too bright. With autumn the right colour is burgundy, which as amazing even later in November, when the skin is much brighter.
