31 Days of Basic Beauty

Day 14 - Basic Red Lip

Red lips give a classic and sophisticated effect to any makeup look. I have created  step-by step instructions so you can create your own basic red lip.

You will need:

  • Red lipstick ( I used a red with blue undertones)
  • A red lip liner similar to the colour of the lipstick
  • Lip balm
  • Concealer
  • Illuminator
  • Lip gloss (optional)
Clockise from Top.

Inika Lip Whip in Berry
Lemon Myrtle Lip Balm from Rainforest Remedies
Colour Theory Lip Liner in Red-y Steady go
Colour Theory Lipstick in Show Stopper
Elf Under Eye Concealer and Highlighter. 

Lets Get Started

Firstly apply a moisturising lip balm
Line lips making a cupids bow if you have oval lips like me
or use the lip shape chart to learn how to line your lips for your lip shape. 

Fill in the lips with the red liner using short careful strokes

Apply lipstick. I just used it straight from the stick. Start on the middle of the top lip following the lip liner working toards the corner of the lips. Then apply lipstick to the bottom lip starting in the middle and firmly sweep lipstick to each corner of the bottom lip.

Mush lips together so that the lipstick evens out

Apply concealer around the lips, this will prevent the lipstick from bleeding. Blend in well.
Apply highlighter to the cupids bow.

If you wish dab a bit of lip gloss in the middle of the top and bottom lip to give it extra shine. 

Easy! A gorgeous red lip!

Because your Beautiful.

Have Fun!
