Red lipstick deserves a spot in every woman’s makeup bag. Classy red lips never go out of style and are the perfect pop of colour to just about any look. But proper application is key! Avoid red-lip blunders with this foolproof, step-by-step tutorial.

How To Get Oxblood Red Lips Perfectly

Step 1: Moisturize your Lips
Use a gentle lip exfoliator to smooth out your lips, then apply a moisturizing balm. Be sure to let it sink in before moving forward with anything else.

Step 2: Apply Lip Liner
Define your lip shape with COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipliner. Hug the outer edges of your lips for a fuller effect.

Step 3: Choose Your Shade of Lipstick
Pick out your favourite lip colour. Oxblood Red is a very bold colour and really acts as an immediate confidence booster! If you are unsure, you can always try out a nude shade first to see how it works for you.

Step 4: Apply Lip Colour with a Brush
Use a lip brush to paint lipstick on using light strokes and gently pat your lips together.

Step 5: Clean It Up
Use a cotton swab to clean off any mistakes. Dip the other end into a translucent or light powder and gently glide it along the outside of your lips. This will help define your pout and prevent bleeding.
