Preparing your pout

Before you chose your favorite shade of red lipstick, it's worth preparing your lips so they are in the best condition possible - making them a better base.

Rimmel's official make up artist Kirstin Piggott says there are a few easy steps to prepare your pout; 

"To ensure a smooth, even and perfect application when wearing a red lipstick, buff and balm the lips before applying any color. You can use a lip scrub or a toothbrush to remove any dry flakes of skin."
"You can even use your foundation to lightly base your mouth, helping to secure your lip color better".
