Red lipstick has always been a hit, but it’s done wrong so much that it can be too scary to try. Done right, though, it can look gorgeous, and be the extra finishing touch to complete your look for that first date or for a fun night partying it up with the girls or for a quiet dinner with your sweetheart . Here is my fast and easy guide to getting it right!

Brush your teeth and do it right. Not only will this get rid of bad breath but will also help keep your teeth sparkling white. If you need to, use a whitener. It's just not a pretty sight to see red lipstick with unattractive teeth.
2. Choose a shade

Different shades of red suit different people so don’t just buy the first red lippie you see! Experiment with different shades and see what suits you best. Also, different occasions and places require different shades. A bright red may just not be appropriate as work makeup.

Apply a small amount of Vaseline around your lips. Try not to go over the edge, or to use too much! If you find it hard to apply, use a cotton bud lightly dipped in. This will help soothe chapped lips and also help the lipstick stick on better.
