Alex’s Tips: How To Do The Perfect Red Lips

1. Starting by applying a blue-based lipstick with a brush.

2. Use a lip pencil to fill in the shape and blend for a no-lined look.

3. Blot once with a tissue and reapply the lipstick.

4. Top with a clear gloss, applying more on the bottom lip to create the illusion of fuller lips.

5. Clean up the edges with a brush dipped in concealer. Voila! Hot red lips!
