I like having red lips, don’t you? So sexy and confident! But I’ve always had the fear of having the lip color bleeding out of the lip line and when smiling for the camera where red lipstick is seen all over your teeth?!?! How embarrassing right!?Well, through trial and error (and research of coz’), I discovered a great way of wearing red lips confidently. Just follow the steps below:
What you’ll need:
- Lip scrub (alternatively you may use sugar)
- Old toothbrush (or new, I prefer to use a new one specially for this purpose, hygiene freak here hello?)
- Lip Balm
- Red lip liner
- Red lipstick
- Red lip gloss (if you like a shine to your lips)
Below is the lip scrub that I use:

Prepping the lips is always important to obtained a smooth looking pair of lips. Don’t forget the most important step before stepping out of the house. You don’t want no embarrassing moments with red lipstick, do you? Suck your thumb like how a baby normally would. This removes the excess lipstick that may find its way onto your teeth!
I have done the exact method several times where food was involved and it lasted me throughout the night. I usually touch up once in between events just so it stays very red and to make the lips look vibrant and alive again.
So, just follow the steps above and you’ll have red lips like the picture below. This can also be done when applying other lip colors too!
