But, pairing a red lip with a fresh and effortless face is a great way to add a beautiful color to your summer look!
Step 1: Things You'll Need:
-shimmer powder (optional)
-assorted neutral eyeshadows
-eyeliner of your choice (optional)
-red lip liner
Step 2: Prepping Your Skin
Also, put on a lip balm now if lipsticks tend to dry out your lips.

Step 3: Covering Up
Shortly after you've blended out your eye concealer, set it with powder so it doesn't crease.

Step 4: Evening Out
As I will be doing in the photos, mix your foundation and BB Cream/CC Cream/tinted moisturizer together. It makes for a very natural and airbrushed effect. Apply it as you normally would.
For a sheerer and less heavy-looking effect, dot foundation where you need it the most, like on your cheeks if they're red. Then, blend it all out with your fingers or a sponge.
When you're finished, set your makeup with a dusting of powder.

Step 8: Prep Your Pout
If you have a white eyeshadow crayon (like NYX jumbo eye shadow pencil in Milk), this will work just as well.

Step 9: Line Up

Step 10: Coloring In
Fair skin with cool undertones: bluish red
Fair skin with warm undertones: true red with a tiny bit of orange
Olive skin: orangey red
Medium skin: fiery red
Dark skin: brick red
Deep skin: plummy red OR brick red
I'm using a lip brush for more precise application, but it's totally fine to apply straight from the tube. Apply a thinner layer, blot with a tissue, reapply, then blot again. This way, it's less likely to ball up or travel to the corners of your mouth.
Apply a gloss if you wish.
