Red lipstick is a makeup essential and one just can’t do without it. And if you love a bold red colour to make a statement, we have something fun for you! Did you know that you can use your red lipstick in multiple ways to make the most of it? From using it as a colour corrector, blush, and even creating an eccentric eye shadow, your red lip colour can do it all.
1. Red lipstick as a colour corrector
Tired of panda eyes and deep dark circles that just won’t budge? Well, take out your red lipstick and apply the smallest amount to dark circles and pigmented skin. It’s great for concealing dark and uneven skin and creates an even skin tone. Blend it well and then top it off with a concealer or full coverage foundation for that flawless and radiant skin.
2. Create a tinted lip balm
Love a bold red lip but don’t like the drying matte effect? All you need is red lipstick and a little coconut or shea butter. Put both of them together in a small container and melt in the microwave. Mix well and let it cool down till the mixture solidifies. Now, you have a hydrating and juicy red lip tint that can double up as a cheek tint.
3. Red lipstick as a blush
One of the many uses of red lipstick is using it as a blush to add a pop of colour to your face. Just dab a little bit of a creamy lipstick on the apple of your cheeks. Then, blend it out to your preferred tone and add a dash of highlighter on top for that beautiful glow.
4. Create an eccentric eye look
Using red lipstick on your eyes might sound silly, but hear me out. A red lip might be statement-worthy, but an eccentric red eye makeup look can be a head-turner. So, use your favourite red lipstick and blend it over your eye so there’s enough colour. Then, to make things extra, you can add a dash of clear lip gloss and you are ready to paint the town red.
5. Draw a dramatic wing
Coloured eyeliner wings are all over the internet these days, so why not hop on the trend and try some? Just get a liquid lipstick and an eyeliner brush and get creative. Create a clean wing and pair it with the same matching lips for a monochrome look.
6. Creating new shades
If you have some nude lipsticks that are too pale for your skin, how about mixing them with a dash of red and creating a brand new colour? You can simply mix your nude and red and create a soft pink or a dusty rose shade, whatever you like.
