There was a time not so long ago that I had to wear the red lips for a special occasion, a choir presentation that is. I've been taught that the best lip color to wear during stage performances is red. The newbie in me experimented with these few lip products and I was amazed with the results.
I wore it for a total of 6 hours, 4pm -10 pm with a heavy and oily buffet dinner in between and I came home with these lips. Honestly, no touch ups were done here and I might have slightly used a tablet napkin after eating. I didn't even bother looking in a mirror while I was still at the venue. How I did it? Here are the steps and the products:
Step 1: On clean and newly exfoliated lips, apply red lipliner all over the lips. I used LA Colors Auto Lipliner in 569 (Php 80 at Metro Ayala)
Step 2: Apply red lipstick with a matte formula all over the lips and pat with tissue. I did this step twice using LA Colors Lipstick in Red Tango (Php 80 at Metro Ayala)
Step 3: Apply another red lipstick with a moisturizing formula all over the lips and pat lightly with tissue. Do this once. This is NYX Round Lipstick in Pure Red (Php150 online).
Step 4: Lastly, apply a red lipgloss, here I was using NYX Lipgloss in True Red (Php200 online).
Not bad for just using 4 affordable products right? Honestly this might even be too much but with the pleasing results, its worth it. Looked like I came home ready for another performance. Actually, except for the lips, I wouldn't really dare. :)
