how to do red lips for a perfect vintage pout

Wondering how to do red lips like a vixen? This tutorial helps you achieve a perfect vintage pout.

Want to wear red lips the right way?

Follow these easy steps to create the perfect vintage pout! Firstly, select your liner and lipstick. Then it’s time to apply…

  • (Pic 1) Using your lip liner, map out your Cupid’s bow by applying an X.
  • (Pic 2) Next, locate the lowest point of your bottom lip and draw a line to follow the curve.
  • (Pic 3) Now that the basic shape of your lips has been mapped out, line the rest of your lips – not forgetting the corners. To ensure that your lipstick lasts as long as possible, fill your entire lips with liner.
  • (Pic 4) Apply your chosen lipstick, either from the bullet or with a lip brush over your entire lips. Blot and repeat.

(Pic 5) There you have it – sexy lips in just a few minutes!
