Even if you weren't blessed with Angelina Jolie's perfect lips, you can still get a perfect pout if you learn some handy tips and tricks. Red lips may be a bit over the top for everyday wear, but they are ideal for a special occasion. When you follow this clever tutorial, you're sure to stand out in the crowd!

Step 1

The key to the perfect red pout is to moisturize your lips thoroughly with either a lip moisturizer or balm. Applying a primer as a base coat will make your lipstick last longer and look brighter too.

Step 2

Next, you should use a red lip liner to outline the area where you are going to apply your lipstick. Make sure you pick a shade that matches your lipstick as closely as possible. Stay inside your natural lip line and start at the outer edge of your mouth and work inwards. Once you have lined your lips, use the lip liner pencil to add color across the whole area so that if your lipstick starts to fade, the color will still shine through.

Step 3

Choose the right red lipstick to work with your skin tone. You can either apply the lipstick straight from the tube or use a lip brush to get an even application. Once you have applied lipstick, use a tissue to blot the excess color. Place the tissue between your lips and press down. This will prevent any lipstick ending up on your teeth while creating a colorful base color. Next apply a further layer of lipstick to enhance the brightness.

Step 4

Add a drop of concealer around your lips to ensure that your lip color does not bleed and spoil your perfect look. Dab it carefully with your finger and make sure that your lipstick hasn't smeared or stained your teeth. Finally, if you like a shiny wet look for your lips, add a layer of clear gloss.

By following this simple tutorial, you will be able to recreate the red carpet look. You're sure to turn heads with stunning red lips!
