How to Apply a Matte Red Lipstick for the Party Season

The Red Lip Look You Can Wear to Every Christmas Party

Update a classic red lipstick look with a bold, matte hue this party season. "There's nothing more passionate than red," says Pat McGrath, Procter & Gamble's global creative design director, who created a look similar to Miranda Kerr's, above, for the Spring 2013 Prada runway. Find out her insider tips to modernising this makeup staple when you read more.

First, you want to smooth out the lips with simple sugar scrub (or your toothbrush in a pinch). This will remedy chapped lips for a seamless application. Next, apply a fiery-red liner, like COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Pencil in Sophisticated ($11.95), on the entire mouth, followed by your lipstick. McGrath used COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipstick in Hot ($14.95), a bright, cool, cherry-red. Since this look is matte, blot off excess moisture with a tissue to set.

And to make your red lipstick pop even more, McGrath recommends adding a highlight on the Cupid's bow, we love Make Up Store Eyepencil in Vanilla ($33). You can also use a pencil that's about two shades lighter than your skin tone for a more wearable version. Finally, clean up any smudges with concealer. Pair this over-the-top lip with simply elegant makeup, including a bare face and perfectly groomed brows.
