After weeks of experimenting with various combinations of red lip liners, sticks, balms, and glosses, I stumbled upon the perfect red lip method. (By perfect, I mean, doesn’t smudge or bleed or look too glaringly red, all while staying put.) And SO simple.
Step 2. Fill in lips with red lip pencil. (I used Sephora retractable one like this.)
Step 3. Mush everything together with a lip brush. If you use the same pencil I did, this is right on the end.
Step 4. Stare in awe at your lovely red lips.
