  1. Smooth Your Skin

    Even though the focus of this look is red lips, they’ll look best with radiant skin. Get yours glowing with Super Stay Skin Tint. Dab it on with a damp beauty sponge for the most natural finish.

  2. Brighten Up

    Dab Instant Age Rewind concealer under your eyes and in your t-zone. You can also use it after you apply your red lip to clean up the edges for crisp lines around your lips.

  3. Bake and Blush

    To keep your concealer in place, press on some lightweight powder like SuperStay Hybrid Powder-Foundation. Then add some color by swirling on Fit Me Blush onto the apples of your cheeks.

  4. Emphasize Your Eyes

    Pair your red lip with defined eyes. Line them with TattooStudio Ink Pen liner and finish with Lash Sensational Sky High mascara.

    To get the cleanest lip look, use the pointed tip of the SuperStay Vinyl Ink applicator as lip liner along the borders. Then, fill in the rest of your lips and mwah! You’re ready to party.
