Red lips: How to do perfect red lips
The perfect base
Leanne Shaw, make-up artist for Frontcover Cosmetics says: "For the perfect red lips create a smooth base by gently exfoliating your lips and applying a moisturizing lip balm. Skin care is the best foundation for any make-up.
"Sweep a touch of foundation across your lips before you apply your lipstick. Next gently smile with your mouth closed to help smooth out the skin surface, then apply a lip liner in a similar shade to the color you are wearing."
