Red Lip Essentials
No matter which shade of red you choose, ensure perfect application by prepping lips first. Exfoliate and hydrate lips regularly for a smooth and flake-free base.
Keep your lip colour in line with a lip filler. A clear liner primer will leave your lips looking smooth, soft, well defined and will fill fine lines around the lips to prevent feathering and fading. We recommend: Glominerals Lip Filler – ClearUse a touch of highlighter in the centre of your lower lip and also on your cupid’s bow to give the illusion of a plump pout. We recommend: Glominerals Sheer Tint Illuminator
Apply lip colour with control and precision with a Lip Brush. A good lip brush will ensure more even, feather-resistant, budge-proof results. Also, you will use less product, thereby extending the life of your lip liners, lip glosses, and lipstick. We recommend: Glominerals Lip Definer Brush
