I am a huge fan of pin up red lips and when ARTDECO asked me to do a tutorial for them using their Dita von Teese collection, how could I refuse them?

Painting your lips red for beginners can be a daunting task - how to fill in your lips just perfectly with no smudged lines, how to correct the smudged lines, how to protect lip lines so that the lipstick doesn't bleed over? Well today's tutorial is all about that:) Are you ready? Let's go!

  1.  Line your lips with an invisible lip liner. I used Make up factory defining lip liner 50 -Invisible. It's really great and long lasting. Why not a red lip liner? Because when you're at a party and happily munching on fingerfood and nipping on champagne, your lipstick is going to melt away - and your lipliner is going to be stubbornly stuck on your lips. So now we're looking at lips '' l'naturel '' with a bright red line around them. Not pretty. 

2. Next, fill your lips with a bright red lipstick. I used ARTDECO's Art Couture Lipstick Velvet No. 615

3. Fill the parts you had missed with a lip brush.

4. Blot gently with a tissue paper and re-apply. This will ensure the color stays on longer. Correct the details with a lipbrush.

5. And voila! Gorgeous red lips!

EXTRA TIP No.1: For a glossy finish, dab on a clear gloss to make your lips shiny.

EXTRA TIP No.2: Dab a shimmery lipstick in the middle of your bottom and upper lip, such as Max Factor's Flipstick Colour Effect for a fancy shmancy finish.

And now a surprise for my dear readers:

Overall, I really like that the lipstick is very long lasting, but it is just a smigde bit dry, so my overall grade would have to be: 9/10.

 Have a great day!
