Beauty Video Tutorial: The Perfect Red Lip


Spring and summer is usually that time when you calm down with smokey eyes and other heavy makeup looks and keep it simple with a pop of color on the lid or lip. My favorite way to add some some extra pizzaz to a look is to wear a bright lip color, keeping the rest of my makeup simple.

Now, if you want a lip color that will pop and last all day, there’s a little more to it than just swiping on a lipstick. Check out the video below to learn how to create that perfect bold red lip, step by step.

More Tips for Bright Lips:

  • Keep the rest of your makeup toned down – you want your lips to be the focus!
  • Be sure to exfoliate your lips before applying any bright color.
  • If red isn’t your thing, try out a bunch of different colors to see which fun color suits you best.

    I love red lips and wear red lipsticks all the time!

    The tutorial was great, but I think there’s something wrong with the audio :)

    I love all bright shades of lipstick but I find that red and coral lipsticks make my teeth look yellow. Does anyone have this problem? I don’t know what to do.

    Totally agree with Rachel that you have the perfect lips to pull this look off! You are gorgeous and it’s awesome how your fun personality comes across even in a tutorial!

    Do you have any suggestions on your favorite lip exfoliators and lip liners?

    @Lisa, try a blue-based red to make your teeth look whiter!

    @Alee & Danielle- If you want to purchase one, I love the ones made by LUSH that I used in the video because for one it lasts a really long time and it has a pleasant taste AND it does an amazing job of removing the dead skin.

    @Lisa Yes like Danielle said a blue based color will bring out the white. :)

    I love bright lips, but never know what’s the right color for me. I loved this tutorial though. I need to invest in the right stuff to actually wear this right so it looks good. Thanks for the great videos as always!
