ONLY HUE Red Run The desire to brandish a bright or deep red lip will have your clients running to you for the best application tips and products. Clients wanting to quicken a heartbeat (or two!) this holiday season? Look no further than painting puckers in lush red. On the runways, best in show goes to two of the racy shade’s most dissimilar incarnations: bright tomato and inky crimson. Which should your clients pick? Both—with some proper instruction. “Many women shy away from red lipstick but when applied correctly, it’s stunning and makes a bold statement,” informs makeup artist Iris Moreau. Whether your client dives in with flaming red or darkest vermilion, Moreau suggests zeroing in on—and helping her perfect—the application. “For both bright and dark red lip applications, always make sure to prep lips with a good exfoliant to remove any dry skin,” she explains. Then, soften the lips further by applying a light moisturizer and allowing it to set. To ensure lip-locked color, Moreau recommends drawing the lip shape using a creamy lip pencil and filling it in with the same liner. “The liner you choose should be a close match to the lipstick you’ll be applying,” Moreau informs. She adds that lip liner prevents feathering and creates a long-lasting base for lipstick to cling to. Then, using a lip brush for optimum precision, trace back over the lip with your chosen lipstick hue. Perfection doesn’t stop there: Integral to a successful red pout is how you set your color. “After applying lipstick, place a tissue directly on the lips. Dip a powder brush in loose translucent powder and lightly dust over the tissue,” Moreau says. “Just enough powder will transfer through the tissue to set the lipstick. Re-apply one more coat of lip color, blot lightly, and she’s good to go!” —Karie L.
