A Christmas Kiss

If I had to choose any color lipstick to wear for the rest of my life (please never let this situation come true, though!) it would be red. I often get asked about my red lips from what color I wear, to how I do my red lipstick. Since Christmas is almost upon us, and is there a better season for red lips than that? I thought I would share my favorite red lipstick/gloss picks and do a little tutorial about how I get the perfect red lips!

My favorites include: Butter London Lippy in Ladybird, Wet n’ Wild Balm Stain in Red-dy or Not, NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella, Cailyn Tinted Gloss Stick in Love Affair, and last but not least, my all time favorite red, Chanel Glossimer in Spark.

How you apply is just as important as finding the perfect red shade. I do it in 3 steps.

1. Line you entire lip. My favorite pick is Milani Color Statement Lipliner in True Red. I cannot stress how important lip liner is with red lips because it makes all the difference, and it keeps it from feathering all over the place.

2. Dab onΒ a pressed powderΒ foundation. I know this sounds weird, but it works I swear! It definitely helps your lipstick last much longer.

3. Apply the lip color. I’m wearing the shade Ladybird here, my favorite red lip for Buffalo Bills football games! I love this one.

Voila! Now you will be perfectly ready to smooch away under the mistletoe…well, maybe not, because now you won’t want to ruin your perfect red lip πŸ˜‰
