how to:

They problem with red lips is that they feather, they aren't symmetrical, or you have to touch it up often because they fade into a blotchy pink mess. Here is how I get a red lip that can go all day or night without doing any of the things above.

Step 1. prep lips by using a concealer stick on, and around lips. dust with setting powder.

Step 2. outline lips, and the fill in using a lip liner that matches your lipstick.

Step 3. use a lip brush to apply a thin layer of lipstick, then blot with a tissue. apply a second, thicker layer.

Step 4. dust setting powder to set for a matte lip that won't be going anywhere.

(this would actually work for any strong lip, I just get the most questions about red lips.)
