How to: Wearing Red Lipstick

Hey ladies!
I know all of us always wonder about the details of how to wear different red lipsticks. I think i can help.
First of all, when you know you want to wear red lipstick, make sure to save a little more time for your makeup than you normally would. The process of applying red lipstick is longer than you`d assume. But before you do all this there is a step to take even before that!
You have to decide whether your lips are on the thinner or plumper side. This helps you figure out which shade of red is right for you. If you have thinner lips, go with a brighter shade of red. This will create an illusion of slightly bigger lips, because people will be drawn to them. But if you have plumper lips go with darker shades, like wine. This will make your lips appear the size they are, not thinner like the brighter shades will.
Now not only do you have to think about your lip size to determine the shade of red you need, but your skin tone. If you have a fair skin tone, than go with a blue based red, or coral. If you have a medium skin tone than go with a true red, or cranberry red. Lastly if you have a dark skin tone than you need to go with a burgundy or a dark brick red.
Remember to apply concealer on the borders of your lips after you apply the lipstick. Therefore they will look perfect!
Also when you use lip liner, choose a lighter color so you don`t have to look for the exact same shade of red.
Also be sure when using red lips in your look, that you make your eyes and everything else subtle. This will make your lips pop even more.
Anyways, I hope this helped you out ladies! Happy lipstick hunting:)
