If you made a vow to amp up your beauty game this year, you’ve got options honey. There are a ton of ways to perk things up, one of which is a commitment to rocking bold lips that add instant oomph to any look. Step outside your comfort zone and sport a ravishing red lip this season. If you haven’t nailed your perfect shade yet, not to worry! We’ve got a few tips on how to get a red lip look ideal for you.

Use your eye color to locate your perfect red shade. Blue and green-eyed gals will benefit from bold berry reds. Not only are these perfect for everyday use, but they can be used as an accessory all on their own. If you’re rocking hazel or brown eyes, a true red or orange red is a gorgeous shade for you. Don’t leave the orange to just summer time, either. As seen on some of today’s hottest Hollywood starlets, a little orange can go a long way for adding a hint of cheer to a dreary winter.

Now that you’ve selected the perfect red shade, how can you make it last until the sun sets? There are a variety of techniques you can use, including using lip liner to fill your lips prior to applying. Lip liner is very important when if you’re looking to extend the wear of your lippie. A dab of concealer can also go a long way when it comes to sealing in color. Experiment with different techniques to find one that’s best for you.
