Tip & Tricks:
To make the most out of the red lip, these are some recommendations via professionals for the longest lasting & best care for that red.
Liner: Lining the lips is a must to prevent smudging...while the reds do not have to be exact, make sure to pick a color close to the red you choose. Take your time lining the lip and take the liner all over the lip prior to lipstick to give the perfect blend.
Translucent Powder: To really set your red lip...blot off as much excess color as you can and set with a translucent powder. This will help to avoid smudging and give you an all day wear.
Shadow: Add shadow for an altered color. You can change up the color of your red by adding a shadow on top. And you make your current color a little different and new by adding different shadow shades on top.
