Taylor Swift released her album Red (Taylor’ Version) last month and we don’t know about you, but we’ve had it playing on repeat. The release caused many fans to take a trip down memory lane and reminisce on the men of Taylor’s past. But if you ask us, the longest and iconic of her love affairs has been the one she continues to share with red lipstick.
Seriously, name a more iconic duo...we’ll wait!
So in honor of the new release and this iconic look, we give you the ultimate red lip routine! Follow these steps and (after a little practice) you’ll achieve the perfect red lip, every time!
First, gather your essentials. You’ll need concealer, lip liner, and matching lipstick.
Start by applying a small amount of concealer to your lips. This allows for a more vibrant look.
Next, carefully trace the outline of your lips with your liner. If you’re going for a full, voluptuous look apply the liner slightly outside of your lip’s actual shape. But be careful - overlining is easy to overdo!
Once your outline is complete, use the liner to color your lips in slightly. Not the entire way, but just enough to increase the width of your outline. This makes the next step a lot easier!
Finally, apply your lipstick, keeping within the outline you just created. And voila!
The perfect lip look - Taylor’s version!
