So, did anyone else notice all of the beautiful ladies at the Grammy's that had red lips?! I must say, I was a big fan! In the spirit of Valentine's Day and because my Mary Kay Consultant gave me a travel size red lip-gloss, I thought I would try out red lips for myself!
Actually smiling is a lot easier than "smiling with your eyes" like I was trying to do in the first picture so you could see my lips!
My red of choice is actually a gloss -NouriShine Lip Gloss in Rock 'N' Red. There is also a darker shade called Red Passion that is also a Shimmer gloss. I have not tried a red lip stick - any suggestions?! What I do like about this lip gloss is that is actually stains your lips so that re-applying is easy-peasy!
The trick to wear red well is to moisturize your lips, apply a tick, even coat and get into the corners of your lips. Click here for a great video tutorial for a classic red lip from a Des Moines, Iowa salon.
