The Perfect Holiday Red Lip in 4 Steps - Credo

The Perfect Holiday Red Lip in 4 Steps

Posted on December 22 2015

This time of year we get more requests than ever for the perfect red. Let the Credo Makeup Artists simplify your search with easy color-matching and 4 steps to perfection:


Model wears ILIA Lipstick in "Strike It Up"

1) EXFOLIATE
Hands down the perfect product for this: Aquareveal Soft Water Peel for Lips

2) MOISTURIZE with a clear balm then blot off any excess
Our faves include de Mamiel’s Rosey Lip Balm if you prefer a matte balm and Kari Gran’s Lip Whip if you prefer a glossier balm (and it comes in Cinnamon and Peppermint, so everybody wins)

3) CHOOSE YOUR RED

Cool Tone Pick: Rituel de Fille “Written in Blood”
Warm Tone Pick: ILIA “Strike it Up”
If the veins at your wrist are both blue and green, your skin tone is neutral, and you can wear any red you like.

    4) Load a lipbrush (like this one by Kjær Weis) with your pigment, and follow this sequence:
    Top lip: “Line up the hill, then down the lane” from the corner of your lip to your cupid’s bow on each side
    Bottom lip: Start in the center and work out in both directions

      For a classic "all-situations-appropriate" look, keep eye makeup neutral and complexion fresh.
      And wear your winning smile because it goes with everything.

      Happy Holidays!
