Features of makeup with red lipstick
The biggest myth about red lipstick is that it’s not for everyone. Dispute! Red lipstick suits everyone regardless of skin tone, hair or eye color, lip shape. The main thing is to choose the right shade of red, which is ideal for you and emphasizes your style (we will tell you how to do this below).
Red looks equally cool in matte and glossy, and even in translucent format. So do not limit yourself to one lip product in the red palette. Experiment!
Types of makeup with red lipstick
Who said that red lipstick can only be used for evening makeup? No restrictions: if with a red accent on the lips, you feel confident – why not use it in makeup every day. True, for an everyday look it is better to consider a few rules. Pay special attention to the tone of the face – use a light tonal coating so that the makeup does not look too “heavy”. The second rule is that you should not put additional emphasis on the eyes (for example, smokey), it will be enough to emphasize the look with mascara and carefully highlight the eyebrows. If you want to make the image even lighter, then apply lipstick with the help of fingertips with driving movements – this way the layer of lipstick will not be too dense, while the red pigment will still become the accent of the image.
Red lipstick is one of the makeup artists’ favorite assistants for creating evening makeup. Prepare your skin thoroughly – to make sure your makeup lasts, choose a foundation with a matte effect. Then proceed to eye makeup: the ideal companion for red lipstick is arrows. This duet will definitely not leave you unnoticed!
For evening makeup, before you start applying lipstick, outline the contour with a pencil – the Color Sensational pencil is ideal for this (it just has two cool red shades 80 “Fire Red” and 64 “Tea Rose”). Now confidently apply red lipstick with your favorite effect. Try to distribute the classic lipstick with a special brush – this way you can apply it as accurately as possible.
Review of the best red lipsticks
Matte lipsticks are a big trend of the last few years. In a red tint, they look especially fashionable and seductive. There are several red matte lipsticks in the Maybelline New York range, each of which will not leave indifferent any beautyholic.
Lipstick Color Sensational Powder Matte, despite the super-matte effect, is easily distributed on the lips and does not dry out the lips. Perfect red – shade 5 “Cruel Ruby”.
Liquid lipstick fans, check out the Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick. It has a creamy texture that smoothes and softens lips with a matte finish. One of the main advantages of the product is the saturation of the color, which lasts throughout the day. There are two red shades in the palette – the classic “Explosive Ruby” and the more carroty “Coral Kiss”.
Another liquid lipstick is Superstay Matte Ink. Girls love it for its incredible durability (up to 16 hours!) And a convenient applicator that can be used to apply bright shades even without a pencil. There are more than 30 shades in the palette, among which there are several red ones for every taste.
Red lipstick with a glossy effect is a challenge and even a provocation! But each of us sometimes wants to be just like that – daring and provocative. Maybelline New York lipsticks to help us.
The Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer liquid lipstick with a lacquer effect with very bright and rich color pigments looks incredibly fashionable. Choose a classic red shade, which is called Classic. Watch out, it’s hot!
Another option is super-resistant (up to 24 hours!) Super Stay 24H Color liquid lipstick. Despite the unprecedented durability, the product does not dry out the lips. The fact is that the lipstick is double-sided and you need to apply it in two stages: first, apply a thin layer of color base and let it dry, then cover your lips with a balm. There are several red shades in the palette – the classic Red Passion, the more muted Infinate Coral with brown notes and the berry Red Alert.
Classic red lipsticks – not matte, but not glossy – are always in trend. Depending on the intensity and method of application, they can be used for both day and evening make-up.
Creamy lipstick Color Sensational covers the lips with a dense layer, while moisturizing them throughout the day, thanks to shea butter in the composition. Lipstick is presented in more than 30 shades, among which, of course, a lot of red.
Another lipstick that treats lips like a lip balm is Hydra Extreme. At the same time, the effect of the lipstick is not translucent, like a balm, but creamy and quite dense, like a classic lipstick. In the palette, pay attention to the shade 815 “Black Cherry” – a deep, very elegant and slightly muted red color.
