Tips For Applying Red Lipstick

Dick Page Says Powder is the New Lip Liner

I consider myself to be so well versed in red lipstick application that I could do it in my sleep. If I had a dollar for every time I repeated the mantra, "Line lips, fill lips in with liner, apply first coat, kiss a tissue, apply second coat, away you go," I would be a rich lady.

But now Dick Page, as in the Mr. Page, makeup artist extraordinaire, has come along and confused me. He told the Allure girls to forgo the lip liner in favour of a cotton bud dipped in loose powder that you should then use to outline your lips. Apparently it's a lot less drying than liner, which sounds plausible, I guess.

He also waded in on the whole no-lippy-on-the-teeth look. To avoid said faux pas, simply stick a finger in your mouth, then slowly pull it out to remove any excess. Smart. And a little trying-to-hard-to-be-sexy so best done in the comfort of your own home, not in line for coffee.
