2. Use a lipliner
If you’re not a lipstick wearer, applying a bold color like red takes some practice. Make things easier by applying a lip liner to help you get the perfect shape.
3. Keep things simple
Red lips are neutral, so they can really be worn with any type of makeup look. We think red lips look amazing with smokey eyes and full glam, but if you’re feeling like a red lip is too bold in combo with a full face, try keeping it simple. A dewy, glowy look with nude shadows and full lashes will help your red lip be the star of the show.

Getting lipstick on your teeth is the worst, especially on a night where you’re out and about having fun. Learn these tricks for keeping lipstick off your teeth so your red lip stays looking flawless all night long.
