Tips to pulling off a red lipstick:

Crimson lips look fabulous and chic but it can look a bit tacky if you do not do it properly. I love red lipsticks and I have a variety of them but it took me quite sometime to figure out as to how to pull it off. Here I share some easy and effective ways in which deep red and its variants will look good on you! So without wasting any time let's get started. 

1. Getting the rest of your makeup right:

The first thing that you have to keep in mind is that your face should be clean and matte. Just imagine a shiny face with scarlet lips! Definitely a big NO! And if you have overall reddish look to your face then you will have to cover it with a good quality concealer and foundation. Having said that just make sure you start with a fresh and clean face and apply foundation and make your skin tone even before picking up that red lipstick!

2. Choose the right blush:
Next tip is that do not be tempted to match the red lipstick with a red colored blush else you will end up looking like a clown. If you decide to color your lips red, then make sure it stands out than the rest of your makeup. Keep your eye makeup subtle and try to choose a natural blush( and please not a red one). Remember you want to draw all the attention to your lips!

3.Deal with bleeding!
The main problem with red lipstick is that it tends to bleed at the corners of the mouth and trust me it does not look good at all! What you can do is, choose a good quality red lip liner( match it with your lipstick) and line your lips properly with it. Take your own sweet time while doing so because you want your lipstick to stay intact on your mouth. Another trick is that you can use a bit of concealer at the corner of your mouth to avoid this bleeding.

4. Tooth check:
Before leaving the house do not forget to check your teeth! After all you don't want a lipstick smile. Some ladies apply a dark red lipstick but it is more on their teeth than on their lips! You sure do not want to be one of them. So just make sure to have a small mirror handy in your purse when you choose to apply a red lipstick.

5. Subtle eye makeup:
Lastly do not forget to keep your eye makeup very natural. You don't want colorful bright eye makeup when you opt for a sultry crimson pout. You can skip blacks and use a white kohl pencil on the lower lash line to really open up your eyes. You can also apply a coat of mascara but nothing too dramatic. Remember red lips should stand out.

So ladies, these were some simple tips you should keep in mind before applying a red lipstick. Don't forget to be confident and your gorgeous smile will surely win every one's heart.
