How To Get The Perfect Red Lip

Step 1:

Start by swiping on benefit’s They’re Real Double the Lip in shade ‘Revved Up Red’. Next, gently press your lips together to blend and ensure even coverage. This two-in-one lipstick and liner contours the lips with two complementary shades at once for a fuller pout. Delivering a semi-matte, smudge-free finish that lasts up to 8 hours, it creates the perfect look in half the time as a standard lipstick.

Step 2:

To complete your ultimate red lip look, neaten the edges using the benefit Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer. Taking a small amount on a concealer brush, carefully cover any imperfections outside your lip line. This soft-focus formula offers up to 10 hours of waterproof wear, creating an airbrushed effect for a flawless finish.
