Makeup Academy: Red lips


Clearly, I love a good red lip. I've already given you a step by step photo tutorial on how to achieve a red lip, but now I also have a video tutorial available on my Makeup Academy series on Look TV. My go-tos are MAC Prep + Prime lip, Basic Red or Redd lip pencil, and MAC Russian Red. I also love that I can tote their lip brush along without worrying about a mess, since it's retractable. And remember: one of the most important steps occurs well before you wear your red lip: keep your lips moisturized and exfoliated. You can watch the video, below.

  12. Great tutorial! I'll have to check out MAC's Russian Red. Lately, I've been using British Red by L'Oreal and absolutely love it. It's a beautiful shade that lasts for hours!

  15. I too love a good red lip! Thanks for the tutorial, Keiko! 'Russian Red' looks amazing on you, but since I'm a redhead I'm more of a 'Lady Danger' kinda girl myself! I just wore it the other day on my blogpost, head over to my blog if you can!
