Last night I attended my first Christmas party of the season with my husband for his business. Over cocktails I quickly discovered women who loved my lips and wanted to know how can they too create the perfect red lip!

I thought you’d like to know this too.So here you go!

The Perfect Tips for Red Luscious Lips!

  • You must start fresh with clean hydrated lips.
  • Apply my  Kissy Lips lip exfoliating Treatment or make a mixture of brown sugar and honey for your lips.
  • Apply my Perfect day Lipstick base
  • Optional:Add  a coat of  China Doll lipstain next to make the color last even longer.It will stain the lips with a rosy stain and make the red hue cling better too.
  • Apply red lip liner or an invisible lip liner that is transparent yet locks color within the lip line.
  • Apply a luscious red lipstick or a red liquid lipstick (they are all the rage).
  • Blot your lips with a fresh tissue or blotting paper.(not powdered just plain)
  • Apply a second coat if you wish to make your pout look bolder.
  • DON’T rub your lips together. Little old ladies do that!

*To make this look even sexier like the makeup artists do in a VICTORIA SECRET runway shows or magazine shoot.Add a dash of a silver or gold lipstick Next add a super shiny gloss in the center of the lips for a sexy highlighted glow. A shimmery way to glow and make the lips look fuller!

You are ready to…Paint the town red,Gorgeous!

A red lipstick & gloss make the perfect gift for your bestie or family member!  Not all gifts need to be costly and over the top. Fill them in Christmas stocking and put a bow on it and give. At this time of year…everyone seems to pull out their best red lipstick,shoes, purse or dress. Make the lips the center of attention.

 

OOPS!

Beauty disasters or beauty dilemmas no matter what you call them they are not fun when they happen! Here are some common problems and my rescues.

You’re doing the last finishing touches to your eye makeup and you decide since it is date night with your husband you want to add a bit more for sexier bedroom eyes.

You add a deeper shade on the outer corners of the eyes and dark specks of color drop down under your eyes and face.

Beauty Solution:
A q-tip dipped into a dash of your cream concealer can pick up that mess fast. Just don’t rub it in, pick it up and cover it at the same time.Next, blend with a pointed sponge and a dot of more concealer.

Next time use Shadow Shields before you apply your eye makeup.I call them baby bibs for under the eyes.

You wear a fierce colored lipstick or liquid lipstick and that shade of bold and sexy is running out of the lip line.You don’t typically like to nor have the time to apply lip liner.

Beauty Solution:Keep a clear lip liner in your cosmetic bag. You apply it like a regular lip liner and yes it is invisible to the eye but works wonders at keeping the lipstick in place and not run all over your face.

Your stylist or spa waxes your brows and you are all red afterwards.

Beauty Solution:When you get home add a few drops of aloe from a fresh aloe plant. If you don’t have an aloe plant in your kitchen you’re missing out on a beauty essential.It is cooling,soothing and tones down redness too.erfect no mess application.Aloe vera gel by the bottle will work nicley too. But I love to go natural!

After you’re done with your face always do a double take in the MIRROR and a well lit or sun lit area.

Beauty Solution: So many women make the mistake of not applying a light dusting of powder over the foundation to set it. Use a loose or pressed powder with a light weight brush. (But you can use the puff)

This is also needed when you apply blush the two do not lay right nor look good on the skin. Always set your foundation or tinted moisturizer first with powder and when you apply blush go over it again dusting lightly to smooth out the edges too.

But please don’t be a powdered “cake face” as a little goes a long way.
