Soft Red Lipstick

Red lipstick is always fun to wear. It gives us a sexy powerful feeling. I think everyone can wear red. It's a matter of finding the right shade for you, warm red or cool red. Light red or dark red. And... creating a look. 

Do you want your lips to jump out and make a statement or do you want a subtle red lip that adds color and dimension without over powering your face? A lot of men don't like that bold red lip. Not that we are doing our makeup for men. I'm just saying. We do our makeup for ourselves and other women who appreciate it.

The perfect shade of red may require some mixing. A dark red may need to be lightened up a bit or a bright red may need a little toning down. You may have to use a combination of colors. I am loving my latest creation.

It's 3 colors to give my lips definition, soft red color and more dimension.

I start by lining the lips and filling them in with Amore lip liner by Prestige. It is a nice bright red.

Next, Chaos by NYX. It's a rich deep red. Love it!

I top it off with Watermelon Cooler Love Me Dew Lip Crayon by Laura Geller. It is a sheer glossy coral to soften and warm the Chaos and add shine.

 Makeup is art. You are the artist. Don't be afraid to mix colors and create!


 Have a beautiful Day!
