If the thought of bright red lips makes you break out in a sweat, I have some handy and practical tips to help you conquer your fear.
1. Go matte.
Long-wearing matte lipstick is much more likely to stay in place for longer, meaning you won’t have to worry about smudging, smearing and touching up so much.
2. Line your lips.
And by your lips, I mean your entire lip area – you can sculpt your lip shape very well with a thin pencil, and lining the entire lip will keep the actual lipstick in place for longer.
3. Check your teeth.
Few things spoil a beautiful red lip as quickly as having the very same lipstick on your teeth. Run your tongue over your teeth every now and then if you’re in doubt.
