Find out how to wear lip stick that is red. Instructions for applying lipstick with colors through pictures, and video.

Red lips are like red underwear, irresistible.

The reason why Hollywood beauties wear lipstick that is red is because it is classic, alluring, and dramatically opulent.

Some people think they do not look good in lipstick that is red, or may think they do not know how to wear red lipstick.

Actually, everyone can look good in red lipstick. There is a red lipstick skin tone match for everyone.

Red lipsticks are different from nude lipstick. A nude lipstick is worn when other features of the face are highlighted, or an all over natural face appearance is desired. When wearing red lipstick, other facial features should be down played, or muted.

Applying Lipstick Steps to get the perfect red lip

Follow these easy steps, to get the perfect lip.

#1 Exfoliate your lips:

Watch the video on this page for great exfoliation tips. Wear lip balm or chap-stick the night before.

#2 Use foundation:

Use powder and foundation on the lips, not concealer. Your lipstick will stay on longer, and won’t smudge. Also, helps to create the perfect lip shape.

#3 Use a lip liner:

Lining the lips is the most important step. The liner should be the same tone or color of the lipstick. If you do not have the same color, use a tone one level beneath your lip color, or just a bit duller. Duller does not mean darker, please do not use dark or black liners.

For the appearance of fuller lips line just outside of your lips. (optional: Fill in your lips with the same lip liner for more density)

If you find it difficult to line your lips, make small dashes around the perimeter of your lips, and connect the dots.

#4 Use a Q-tip:

Clean around the perimeter of lips, to make a precise lip shape. Use more foundation for clean up if necessary.

#5 Fill in your lips with the lip color:

If using a brush, make it a small lip brush. Carefully use short strokes from outer corners to inner lip. If you wish to apply a couple of layers, blot between each layer with a lint free cloth (bounty paper towel).

Important Note:

If you do not want to blot the lipstick, you can use a lip stain to deepen the color under your lipstick. This also gives you longer wear time.

Expensive cleansers are not necessary

Learning to clean makeup brushes is the key to keeping them in their best quality. Not to mention it gets rids of germs, that accumulate over time. Think of it like washing the bed pillows. Once you learn how to clean makeup brushes you need to wash your brushes at least once every 2-3 months.

Washing your brushes is easy.

Yes, I know most people will tell you that it is necessary to buy all these expensive products to wash your brushes. Not me. Actually I haven’t paid anything for over 2 years to keep my brushes shiny and new.

So, the product recommendations I have for you will not come from a beauty supply store.

I don’t know if you guys are aware of this but Dawn dish washing liquid can do just about anything.

I feel like Mr. Clean when I use Dawn. (remember him the bald guy, in the commercials with the big muscles, and white T-shirt that kept a sparkling house, and head :), anyway I was just reminiscing.

I use Dawn for all sorts of things and learned how to clean makeup.

  • I wash laundry with it (2 cupfuls is enough)
  • I clean my sparkly, mold free bathroom with it. (get a spray bottle add 1 cap of dawn, and 1/3 cup of bleach) Your bathroom will be spotless.
  • I also dab a little on a damp wash cloth and clean my glass tables with it

Yes, Dawn is wonderful. But, most importantly for this page. Dawn can clean your brushes, without leaving any residue. Your brushes will look like new.

How to Clean Your Brushes

    1. Get a glass jar just for cleaning makeup brushes, it can be pretty, but make sure it is clear glass. You can use an old mayonnaise jar if you want. Just take the label off nobody has to know it was mayonnaise.
    2. Put 4 to 5 drops of Dawn Dishwashing liquid in the jar, along with lukewarm water. Fill the jar 1/3 of the way, you only want to get the bristles wet, not the handles.
    3. Do not work into a lather. Let the brush sit in the water. (it is recommended you wash all your brushes at the same time). So if you have 10 brushes, wash all ten.
    4. After you have put all the brushes in the jar, twirl them around in the water for a minute or two. Cleaning Makeup Brushes doesn’t take long with Dawn it’s awesome.
    5. One at a time take them out of the water, and rinse them under running lukewarm water, until it rinsed clean. (If you haven’t washed them for a long time, they might not rinse clean, but after each wash it will get better). Or maybe you should invest in a new set like this awesome

13 Piece Makeup Brush Set and Case.

  1. After rinsing lay them on a folded towel to drip.
  2. It is best to let them air dry with handles in the upright position, or lay them on a flat surface that lets the air circulate around them. But if you don’t have all of that, the towel will be fine.

I usually wash my brushes at night, and the next morning they are ready for use. Looking Brand New.

It doesn’t take a lot of money to learn how to clean makeup, the cleaning process is fast and easy. Using expensive, professional cleaning solutions is not necessary.

Natural Makeup

Before Applying Your Makeup Application

  • Use your favorite products to cleanse, tone, and moisturize your face.
  • You will always get more natural results with every makeup application on a clean face.

Apply Your Under Eye Concealer

  • Tilt your head down to spot your under eye circles.
  • Using your finger gently apply the concealer directly under the dark circles.
  • Use a rolling motion start at the inner eye, and move outward to outer edge of your eye, and roll back again.
  • This rolling motion will spread and thin the concealer covering the dark circle.
  • If you use too much concealer gently dab the remaining until it blends. Ensure the concealer is blended well, without demarcation lines.
  • It is better to use your fingers in this delicate under eye area instead of using brushes, and other tools.
  • Using the left over concealer on your fingers, dab into the upper corners of your eyes.

Applying Mineral Powder

  • Apply the concealer first, then apply the mineral powder. If applied in the opposite direction you will probably get a caked appearance.
  • Dusting mineral powder over the concealer allows a longer lasting application, and sets the concealer in place.
  • Mineral powder is very light.
  • Dust the powder over your eyes and all over the entire face.

Apply Mineral Foundation

  • Evenly coat your skin with the mineral foundation.
  • Swirl the application brush in a circular motion to blend for a natural look.
  • Start at the center of your face, and lightly apply to cheeks, chin, and upper facial area.
  • Make sure the foundation is evenly coated.
  • Lightly apply to neck.

Eyebrows

natural-makeup-look-eyes

  • Ensure your eyebrows have been properly manicured and or waxed.
  • Start the eyebrow at the inner bridge of the nose.
  • Use an eyebrow pencil that is two to three shades lighter than your natural hair color.
  • Do not draw on the eyebrow line, but dab the pencil, in a light stroking motion to emulate real hairs, in areas that are sparse.
  • Create the eyebrow shape that you want
  • Complete the eyebrow just below the temple.

Curl Your Lashes for Your Natural Makeup Look

    • Using an eyelash curler like this –

  • Curl the lashes before applying your mascara.
  • Curling your lashes helps your eyes to appear larger, and your eyelashes to appear thicker.
  • Using the eyelash curler while the lashes are wet with mascara will probably damage your lashes, and pull them out.

How to Apply Mascara

Mascara helps your eyelashes to look full, lush, and long while opening and defining your eyes. Use mascara with every natural make up look.

  • Start applying the mascara at the roots of the lash.
  • Gently wiggle the brush from side to side, while gliding upwards. This will separate each lash.
  • Complete the application by closing the lid, and brushing the top of the lash starting as close to the base as possible, removing lumps if necessary.

Try this clump free mascara which is also the worlds most popular, waterproof, does not clump, and stays on until you wash it off.

  • Take your blush (preferably a bronzer for a natural glow) and start at your ear, following underneath your cheakbone.
  • Take the same blush, and apply lightly to your temples in a circular motion.
  • And since, this a natural look, apply the same blush lightly to your upper eyelids.

Applying Lipstick

Should we use red lipstick for our natural makeup look?

  • Lips usually appear more natural, with a muted pink tone lipstick, or lip gloss.
  • Gently apply the lipstick, and glide top and bottom lips together to blend.
  • If using a lipliner ensure the liner blends with the color without a separation line of definition.

Be careful when applying red lipstick to a natural palette it is overwhelming.

Eyeliner is Optional for the Natural MakeUp Look

  • For a more natural appearance, do not use eyeliner on the bottom lid.
  • Eyeliner on the top lid is optional, and for a more dramatic look is recommended.
  • Starting at the inner corner, create your line, with short strokes, to the outer corner of eyelid.

Did You Know?

  • You can clean an old mascara brush, and use it for your eyebrows.
  • If you dab your foundation with a sponge, your complexion will look more natural.
  • Wear foundation that looks like your natural skin tone.
  • If you use bronzer when applying blush, your makeup will look more natural, and give your skin a rosy glow. MAC cosmetics has an abundance of bronzers that will last and go a long way in this natural makeup look.
  • If you line your bottom lid with eyeliner, you lose some of that natural make up look effect.
  • Skip the foundation for a more natural make up look.
  • Pink lip gloss will give you a touch of color, and look natural. When applying lipstick stick with the colors that blend easily with your skin tone. Vibrant, or fluorescent colors are not natural. Be careful when applying red lipstick to a natural palette it is overwhelming.

Mineral Makeup

Everyday mineral makeup is a natural make up that gives a sheercover. You barely know you are wearing it because the conceal, and powder foundation makeup is light and airy making it feel like a second skin.

Wearing mineral makeup cosmetics will help to give a flawless glow. The model in the below video is wearing loose powder foundation makeup.

Here are a few different natural minerals cosmetic companies worth noting here:

  • La Minerals
  • Illuminare
  • Bare Minerals
  • Bare Escentuals
  • Maybelline
  • Covergirl

Is Mineral Make Up the Best Makeup?

Mineral makeup is not totally made of 100% minerals. Some of the ingredients within the makeup mineral cosmetics have lots of synthesized products that have been created in the lab.

Zinc oxide is an ingredient within the minerals bare compacts. However, they are no zinc oxide mines in existence. Additionally, titanium dioxide is another mineral ingredient that is included, but not in its purest form. Zinc Oxide goes through a major purification process before it is added to your makeup compact.

So, if the make mineral up cosmetics do not have all the minerals manufacturers claim what are the benefits? Mineral makeup is a much purer form of makeup, than the standard cosmetics. It is like comparing organic food, to the standard food that is found on most shelves.

Here are some irritating causing ingredients that traditional makeup has, and mineral makeup does not.

  • Parabens
  • Preservatives
  • Mineral oil
  • Fragrance
  • Chemical dyes

If you have skin that is acne prone, mineral make-up is the best choice for sensitive skin. Research shows that because of mineral makeup, many people with rosacea, and eczema finally have the ability to wear makeup.

Mineral makeup does have sunscreen in it because of the zinc oxide, but it is less than SPF 45, which makes it a good skin protectant.

There is one ingredient in Mineral make up that may be harmful to your skin, and it is called Bismuth Oxydhloride. It is the ingredient that makes your makeup ” pearly “. However, most mineral manufacturers have taken this ingredient out all together.

Mineral Powder Foundation Makeup

All liquid foundations must include some preservatives in them. The liquid must be protected from forming microbes, that live and thrive in liquid formulations. For your protection preservatives are added to all liquid cosmetics.

The alternative to liquid cosmetics, is you guessed it! Loose mineral powder foundation from Everyday Minerals.

How to Apply Mineral Makeup

  • Apply the powder by the tap, swirl, and buff method (as seen in the video on this page)
