HOW TO GET THE PERFECT FESTIVE RED LIP





Tis the season, and you've hopefully arrived to your final destination
where you'll be spending these jolly days. Last year I almost didn't make
the plane home, and was close to spending a Christmas on my own. Whether
you're surrounded by family and friends, or maybe going out to meet new ones
who are also spending their Christmas away from home,
one thing is sure; red lipstick can be a game changer!

And good news, there's still time to dust off that red lipstick of yours,
and you won't need much to get it just right for Christmas eve. but a few
tricks will make the look go from good to perfect.




YSL ROUGE VOLUPTE SHINE

Here comes the magic trick: it's ELF. 
No, it's not Will Ferrell dressed in a green suit and slippers
coming to do his magic with a make-up wand, and yes,
it is as effective as it is cheesy. 




First step: exfoliate. There are several ways to do this well, and
it's all up to you what floats your boat. If you like me are suffering from
dry lips at this time, rub some lip balm on there before taking on the exfoliating
(I swear by Lucas' Papaw Ointment and M.A.C.'s Lip Conditioner). If they're
really dry, letting it sit for 10 minutes will do wonders, and not leave you with
bleeding lips (that's the exact opposite of what we're trying to do here). Some
mix in sugar with lip balm or honey, others use a dry towel, or a clean
toothbrush to rub off anything dry on the lips. Choice is yours, just make
sure your lips aren't too moist when you start applying your lip colour!

Second step: line the lips. This will prolong the longevity of your lip
colour, whilst making sure everything stays in place. After lining the edge
of your lips, smack them together a few times quickly, to smudge the
line into the lip a bit.

Third step: fill 'em in! With the little time we have until Christmas,
this is not the time to be shy! Apply the lip colour within your beautifully
drawn, beautifully smudged line and make sure to finish off with
a smile!

  15. In the photo it seems that the lipstick is a little bit too much shiny red and it makes you looking too much white, i would choose a bit more berry undertone for you. Anyway you look amazing in the pictures!
