New Year Look Inspiration: Now is the Perfect Time to Try That Red Lips!

What better reason, than a new year to finally try that red lips look? If you haven’t had the courage to do so, now it’s time to let go and finally give it a try. Many swears by the MAC Russian Red because its blue tone will be perfect on most skin tone. I myself prefer something that leans toward orange red such as MAC Lady Danger.

But if you’re still in the search for the perfect red lipstick, may we suggest you to try to venture into the affordable lipstick lines that also have good quality and wide range of colours such as the Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lip Color or Affi’s favourite Wardah Exclusive Lipstick range that are all below Rp 50,000.

A quick tips in using red lipstick:

  1. Make sure that your lips are properly moisturized using lip moisturizer. Put it on at the beginning of your skincare ritual so by the time you want to apply your lipstick, your lips are already moist.
  2. Use lip pencil to draw the line on your lips so the lipstick won’t ‘bleed’ out.
  3. Apply the lipstick using lip brush or softly press it into your lips using your pinky fingers for a more natural look.
  4. Finish it off with a little bit of gloss on the middle part and blend it slightly outward for a shiny finish.
