Red lips are classy, elegant and head turning. They state that you are confident, reflecting that you know what you are doing.
Whether you are giving a professional presentation at work in front of your co-workers or meeting at your favorite restaurant to have dinner with the man you are most fond of, your lips can highlight your appearance, leaving a captivating impression.
Wearing red can be tricky if you don’t do it correctly. That’s why it’s important to know how to apply your lipstick properly and use the best quality makeup. LaLa Daisy has a huge variety of top-brand lip products that enhance one of your most attractive facial features.
Selecting the Right Shade
Not every shade of red is for everyone. A color that looks great on your friends may not flatter you. Finding your best hue depends greatly on your skin tone, as well as the lipstick undertones.
One way to identify your skin tone is to look at your veins. If they are greenish in color, your tones are warm, and if your veins appear to be purplish, your undertones favor cool shades. Warm-toned lipstick blends the hues of orange with the red, while the cool shades contain variations of blue.
Having warm undertones doesn’t consign you to wearing only warm choices. Likewise, having cool undertones doesn’t require that you need to only wear cool shades.
Depending on the look you desire, you can choose either option. For instance, if you are warm and wear warm shades, it will produce a subtler look with similar tones. If you are warm and wear cool hues, it will give your lips a striking pop since wearing the opposite creates a more dramatic look.
Proper application will not only produce beautiful lips that will stand out, but it will also allow that dazzling color to last all day long. The following application steps can help to accentuate the natural beauty of your lips.
Removing dead skin is the first step to creating luscious red apple lips. You can use a clean mascara wand or a clean, soft toothbrush.
Massage the brush gently over your lips, removing dead skin cells. This eliminates all the buildup and peeling that occurs daily. Softly wipe the exfoliated skin with a moist washcloth.

Good lip care is essential for keeping them healthy. The skin on your lips is thin and not as capable of holding moisture. To keep them from cracking, apply a moisturizer.
Lip balm containing shea butter is especially nourishing and can repair flaking or chapping. With a good moisturizer, your lips will remain smooth and soft, allowing them to retain a fresh and supple look for longer.
Apply a small amount of foundation on your lips as a base. This will allow the red flesh color to remain vivid and lively throughout the day. Using foundation is also beneficial if you are planning on making your lips smaller or bigger.
The next step is to outline your lips with a liner. This defines their shape and keeps your lipstick from feathering out.
Match the color of your liner to your lipstick and sharpen the pencil to create a fine, precise line. Sharpening your liner also removes any bacteria that may be lingering. Freezing the pencil ahead of time for about 15 or 20 minutes can prevent tip breakage.
Open your mouth just a little to produce a natural shape, and place the pencil on the natural line of the center of your top lip. Sketch a line out to the corner of one side.
Repeat this on the other side and on your bottom lip. If the pencil is pulling at your skin, soften the tip by gently rolling it between your thumb and fingers.
Use the lip liner to fill in and extend the duration of your lipstick and maintain the color. Make short, even strokes, starting from the center and working your way out.
Now it’s time to apply the red lipstick you have chosen for the day’s wear. Start in the center and move outward until you have filled in your entire lips. Try Youngblood Intimatte Mineral Matte Lipstick – Fever for that perfect red tone.
Next, use a lip brush and load it with color from your lipstick. A brush enables you to create a more precise finish and apply the color to your desired thickness.
To keep the color sealed and looking smooth, apply lip moisturizer over the top. Blot the area gently with tissue paper to remove any excess color.
You can use a concealer brush or a cotton swab around the outside of your lips. This allows them to stand out with sharp exterior lines.
To finalize and add a boost of lasting power, dust your lips with a makeup brush and clear finishing powder. This will set the color and prevent it from coming off.
To freshen up after a few hours, use a lip brush to apply a light layer of lip color. A tapered brush is the most ideal for precise application. Apply the moisturizer and then dust again with the loose powder.
With the right techniques, your lips will be stunning, giving you confidence no matter what time of the day it is. LaLa Daisy has the best selection of colors as well as the highest quality of renewal and enhancement products that give you sensational lips and bring out your true natural beauty.
