Making The Lips Alluring With A Red Lipstick

Many women do not feel confident about wearing a bright shade of red lipstick on their lips. Most of them think that a red lipstick is far too luminous and showy for them, and that it calls too much attention on their lips. Some think that such a brilliant shade of lipstick would make them look clownish and unattractive.

What only makeup artists and a few women know is that red lipstick can make the lips very alluring if applied correctly. Red lipstick can make the lips look plump, sexy and very kissable. But on a deeper level, lips painted a bright shade of red evoke an instinct in men that is hard-wired into them already and will most likely remain within them despite millennia of continuous evolution.

You see, in prehistoric times, a woman's beauty is judged by how healthy she looks. Anthropologically speaking, a woman is considered beautiful if her body is amply fleshed out, with wide hips that can carry a fetus to term and full breasts that can produce enough milk to feed a newborn baby. A healthy woman also has flushed skin and reddish lips, which means she has good blood circulation.

By instinct, men look for women who look healthy enough to breed children for them, and red lips are just one of those signs that tell them a woman is such. The idea may sound crude to our modern-day sensibilities, but that is just how it is with men. Red lipstick applied to the lips makes a woman attractive to men.

As much as women shy away from wearing red lipstick because it looks showy and obvious, there is actually a way of applying it to the lips that will make the red subtle enough and will not make it appear garish. To achieve this, there are two factors that you need to consider, namely the tone of your skin and the size of your lips.

A principle in wearing red lipstick is that the paler your skin is, the bigger your lips would look like when you apply red lipstick on them. So, you should match the hue of your lipstick with the tone of your skin. If your skin is light and pale with pinkish tones, you are better off using plum reds. If your skin is dark and with tones of yellow, then you should go for a red lipstick mixed with brown shades.

Because red lipstick makes the lips appear bigger and plumper than what they really are, you should also consider the size of your lips when choosing a shade of red lipstick. If your lips are thin, you are safe with the bright reds. If your lips are thick and full, the shade of red lipstick that you should choose should have mixes of brown or blue.

Now that you know how to choose what kind of red lipstick you should wear, how then should you wear it? Applying red lipstick on the lips is just like painting – you have to prepare the canvass on which you will brush the paint. This is a principle in the application of makeup.

So, before you apply red lipstick on your lips, dab on a light coat of foundation on your lips, and then brush on a bit of face powder on top of the foundation. This will give your lipstick a polished look when you are done with it. The foundation and the powder will also hold the lipstick and keep it from running off.

When you are done with the foundation and the face powder, gently trace the outline of your lips with a sharp lip liner. Make sure that the lip liner matches the shade of your lipstick. The lip liner will keep the lipstick from bleeding out of the lips.

After this, put your red lipstick on with the use of a lip brush. A lip brush will ensure that you have just the right amount of lipstick on your lips. Work your way from the middle of your lips to the corners. And then, kiss a piece of tissue to take away the excess lipstick and then finish off by dabbing a small amount of face powder on your lips.

Red lipstick makes the face, not just the lips, very attractive. So, you have to make sure that your makeup is balanced whenever you have red lipstick on. If you have red lipstick on your lips, just apply a light shade of eye shadow on your eyes to keep the focal point of your makeup on your lips. If your eye shadow is not light enough, you will end up looking like a clown with your makeup. Better yet, do away with the eye shadow completely and just dab on mascara for some subtle drama.

You do not have to be afraid to wear a bright shade of red lipstick on your lips. Just apply it correctly and make sure that you balance your makeup when you paint your lips red.

Choosing & Applying The Perfect Make-up Foundation

Beautiful makeup requires the perfect make-up foundation.

Foundation creates a blank canvas on the face to which colors is added: eye shadow, blush & lipstick. It is also the setting agent. It is also the setting agent for these products acting as a barrier between the colour & the skin's own natural oils, which would otherwise dissolve the make-up. But because it covers the largest area of the face, foundation needs to blend seamlessly with the skin.
Makeup Foundations for differing Skin Types
Before buying new foundation there are two areas of concern that need to be addressed.
Firstly, the foundation must complement your skin type.

Oily Skin; For oily skin that is prone to shine, an oil-free formulation will hinder the production of excess oil, and most contain extra powder particles to dry any oil produced.

Normal Skin; Normal skin can take pretty much any formulation, but a liquid will give ample coverage without looking caked or heavy. Dry skin needs make-up foundation with extra moisturisers to keep it supple, and to prevent the skin from drinking in the makeup. A cream make-up formulation will last longer and also hydrate.
Foundation Colours
The best time to pick a colour is when your skin is at its most natural shade. So, after your holidays or morning after self tanning applications are not the best time. The best place to try make-up is on the jaw line.
Basically, foundation colour falls into two categories;
• Foundation bases with yellow tones
• Foundation bases with pick tones
The most common yellow-toned skin types are Asian, sallow and black skin, whereas fair skin has generally has pink tones. It is important to choose a foundation that matches your skin's base, otherwise the make-up will not blend well, no matter how you apply it.
Applying make-up foundations
Oily Skin; With oily skin, the application of oil-free formulas needs to be fast, as they dry speedily. Using clean fingers to apply small does to the areas most in need of coverage is the best way; simply do each area at a time until the face is complete.

Normal Skin; For normal skin, the choice of cream-to-powder liquid or powder foundation can change how much time you spend applying it. Cream-to-powder is best applied with a sponge, starting in the centre of the face and working outwards; its done in a matter of moments. Liquid foundation looks more natural applied with a foundation brush. Again work the brush outwards, taking care to use less around the eye area. Powder or mineral make-up foundation should be applied with a large powder brush; while it will not give the same level of coverage as a liquid, it is a great makeup for those who are pressed for time.

Dry Skin; For dry skin, cream foundation moves well around the face, and a little goes a long way. Dry skin tends to have few blemishes, so concentrate on areas that need coverage, and leave clear areas bare: this is why getting the right colour match is vital.
