There’s no better magic than luscious red lips. Sensual and stunning, red lips can brighten up a dull day and take any look you are wearing a notch higher.  It’s a big myth that red lipstick is only for the night-time, you can wear it to college or the office and pair it with a wide range of outfits. Think you’ve tried it too many times but somehow haven’t been able to apply red lipstick perfectly? Put an end to your worries as we show you how to perfect the red pout.

A good choice for the perfect red shade is the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Matte Lipstick in Red Rush. While this one is a matte lipstick you always have the option of a glossy pout too. Before you opt for the lipstick however, you will need a lip liner like the Lakmé 9to5 Lip Liner in Red Alert to set the outline for a dramatic and well defined pout. So follow these steps and embrace that sexy red pout, ladies!
Here's how to get this look:

Step 1

Line the lips with the liner making a cross on the Cupid’s bow. Post this, you can continue to line the outline of the upper and lower lip.

Step 2

Apply some of the lipstick on your brush and fill in your lips with the colour selected.

Step 3

An inside tip that will help seal the makeup applied on your lips, requires some compact powder to be applied onto your lips once the liner and lipstick application is complete. To do this, take a tissue, place it over your lips and dust on a dab of powder over the lips. After this step, take the lip colour and add a final swipe over your lips for a professional finish.

Now that you’ve got a red pout that you aren’t afraid to sport, wear it with a set of neutrals or a jacket into the office and see how you win at the 9-5 game. If not, your LBD is always on stand by and more than happy to partner this look.
