red lips are sexy and fun but there's nothing worse than having more lipstick on your champagne glass than on your lips.
So what do you do?
The trick is to "layer" with different products. There are 5 layers in my stay put recipe.
First, apply your foundation on top of your lips as a primer. (layer 1)
Powder lightly with a no color powder.
Then apply a lip pencil in a similar shade to your red lip color. After creating the shape you want, go ahead and lightly fill in the rest of your lips with the pencil. (layer 2).
Now with a lip brush apply your red lip color. (layer 3).
Next, with a powder puff or sponge pat a no color powder over your lips. Pat only or you will smear the color. (layer 4)
OK, now it looks and feels way too dry. So add a very light coat of your red lip color to make it look dewy again, but not too much or you're back to square one! (layer 5)
