5 Tips to Help ANYONE Wear Red Lipstick!


(ambient lounge music) – Hey everyone, I’m Melea. Ok, so a little bit ago on Instagram, I actually posted a picture
of myself wearing red lipstick and the comments came flooding in, asking questions about it and then I started thinking,
“Gosh, I bet there’s a lot “of people out there who
maybe don’t feel comfortable “wearing red lipstick, or
maybe feel like it looks super “silly on them.” And then I thought, “Gosh I
should share some of my tips.” So, today’s video is all about my tips for wearing red lipstick and
how it can look good on anyone. So, let’s get started. (dance pop music) As we get started, I want to
talk about some of the items I’m going to be using in
the video for you guys. You have to be using a
blue-based red lipstick. And the reason why is
because most of the time people need a blue undertone
in their lipstick or it won’t look good on their skin tones. There’s very few people
out there who can actually pull off a red-orange toned lipstick. So when you’re at the store, open it up, test it on your hand if you need to to see if it looks more orange or if it looks more like a blue-purple. That will help you out. So go with the red-blue-purple. So, I have a four different
red-blue-purple lipsticks here that you guys can kinda
look at to get an idea. They’re all different price ranges. I have Ulta lipstick, which
I usually get for about $4, and then there’s MAC, which
is, you know, 20-something dollars for lipstick. Doesn’t matter, they all work the same, so it doesn’t matter how
much money you spend. The next thing I would
recommend is a lipstick brush. It is one of the best ways to
put on your lipstick and it’ll actually keep your red lipstick
on all day long, without re-applying, even through food. If you can see, mine’s pretty dirty, so I probably need to clean that. Sorry about that. But it’s awesome, and you
can find these at Sephora, I’ve even seen them through
companies like e.l.f., which, their brushes are
usually a dollar or two, so it’s a cheap option, too. The last thing I wanna
show are makeup removers. When you do wanna take
off your red lipstick, have you ever noticed
it stays, and it’s like, permanently etched onto your lips? So we wanna get eye makeup removers. These are my favorite. They’re by Almay. One is an oil-free, so if you
have contacts that’s the one you’re gonna want to use. And then if you don’t, the
other one takes off everything that is waterproof. And most of my makeup
I wear is waterproof, and it takes off everything. Okay, oh, and the last
thing you’re gonna need is some tissue, and you’ll
find out in just a second why. If you’re gonna be using a red crayon, you don’t need a lip brush. First step you wanna do is
actually outline your lips with a– – -it’s like a coloring book, right? You’re gonna do the outside
first, and then fill it in. If not, you’re gonna go over your lines, and then you’re gonna have
this weird clown face, which we don’t want. So I am going to use… my Ulta lipstick, and this is 202. Like I said, it’s like four bucks. I’m just gonna get some
lipstick on the actual brush, and I’m gonna do the outside first. Okay, so I wanted to show you guys this. My lips are actually really thin, so when I’m outlining,
I’m going as far out as I possibly can without
overstepping the line, because I don’t wanna
look like a clown, right? You don’t wanna, like,
have it look all crazy. But this outlining will help you start. And like I said, like a coloring book, now we’re gonna fill in the rest of it. So here are my lips. Once you have them filled
in, you wanna go back a few coats to make sure
that they feel moisturized. Because if they still feel
dry that means that you don’t have enough on there and
they won’t last through like a dinner, or eating food. I think that’s one of the
number one reasons why women don’t wear red lipstick,
’cause they’re worried about it getting on their teeth
and looking really stupid. So this is what you do. So as you can see, I have lipstick here, and I have lipstick here. So, you wanna keep doing that
until you don’t have any more lipstick on your fingers, and
then you’ll know that you’re totally clear, and you won’t
get any lipstick on your teeth. If you don’t do that, you’re
gonna end up with lipstick on your teeth, and you’re
gonna, like, look really silly because most people won’t
tell you when you have lipstick on your teeth! I don’t know why, but they just don’t. So, skip that whole
embarrassment and just do that to make sure that you
don’t have any issues. The last thing that I wanna
talk about really fast is eyeshadow. The other reason why a lot
of people look really silly with red lipstick is
because their eyeshadow is so overbearing. If you’re gonna do a bold
lip, bold, bright, red lip, you have to do really light eyeshadow. So today I am sticking with gold and really light browns
instead of black eyes. You can’t go dark and dark. You have to pick which one
is going to be your focus: either your eyes, or your lips. Okay, so here are my red lips! I wanna know if you wear red lipstick, what brand and what color number you wear. Leave it in the comments below so we know, and tell us whether it’s
a blue-red or if it’s an orange-red so people
know which ones to go buy at the store. And if I find any that I
think you guys are gonna love that are a great price point,
I’m gonna leave the links below in the description section, too. Okay, so that’s it, I hope you
guys learned something new. Don’t forget to hit the like
