HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT RED LIP
Keywords: Red lip, perfect, Make-up artist Liz Beckett, perfect red pout
It takes a little more work to get the perfect red lip pout we see models effortlessly flaunt on magazines.
And it doesn't just involve twisting the base of your sexy rouge lipstick and plonking it on as you pout.
To get the perfect pout, the first step is to prep your lips by exfoliating using a soft toothbrush.
Using a lip liner, line your lips with soft feathery strokes starting from your cupid's bow (the top of your lip) to the ends on both sides before colouring in your lip.
That ensures that even after your lipstick fades, you're not just left with an awkward lip line.
THE PERFECT NUDE LIP TAG

We all have problems getting that perfect nude lip.
It's either too dull, which makes us look washed out, or it comes out a little bit too pink, which defeats the purpose of opting for a nude colour.
In this video, this beauty pro shows how to achieve the look: First, apply the remnants of either your foundation or concealer brush over your lip to get an even base, then line your lips and smear on a beige-coloured lipstick.
To top it off, blend the colour in with a lip liner before glossing it up for plump perfection.
