Red-Carpet Lips

I’ve been pretty hooked on the red lip for a while. It makes me look more put together than I actually am, reminds me of Mad Men (my  Netflix addiction), and it creates the look of a whiter smile. Lucille Ball wore the it well (my idol) and Angelina Jolie makes it look more regal than thought possible.

The problem with the red lip is the constant touch ups, getting it on your teeth, and it not looking smooth due to dry lips. Solutions await …

A lip stain is what you need to get the right red that stays in place. I know Beyonce shows it off on the commercials, but Infallible really works and I have the puckers (and compliments!) to prove it. It comes with a moisturizing top coat and a reflective case you can use as a mirror.  Ohh, and you need to scrub the sh*t out of your lips to remove the color.

Now for avoiding color on teeth. It’s pretty simple. After applying color, pucker lips and stick a finger in your mouth. Pull finger out and excess color will be in tow.

And if dry lips are your hurdle, olive oil and brown sugar can act as a DIY exfoliant and moisturizer. Watch how to make it.

    I just went to sephora today to get a red lipstick….I was scared! It’s so bold, but so pretty. I love the look on others, but didn’t know if I could pull it off. I settled with a Charlotte ronson red gloss, but I’m definitely going to try this, thanks!

      Glad you like! I used a red gloss by New York Color. It eased me into the trend, and now I LOVE red lips :)

    […] 2. The Lip. A red lip is timeless and everyone really could wear it! Plus it makes you look put together when you had no time do fix your hair or do up your eyes. Estee Lauder came out with a pretty red color in honor of the show, but it’s $20. I got it as a gift and love it, but I love my Loreal infallable stain WAY MORE. Beyonce’s shade is the ‘it’ shade. Read about it here. […]

    […]   First up we have gel liner, a super long lasting, very pigmented liner that comes in a pot. Thicker color and the ability to smudge and blend comes from using a gel. Usually best suited for those with an unsteady hand because the lines created with gel are forgiving and luckily, mistakes are barely noticeable. This is perfect if you are going for the smoky effect, as seen on Angelina Jolie. […]
