3 Ways to Wear Coral Red Lipstick

In this post I wanted to show you 3 different ways you can wear red lipstick, or an orange red like mine.

Tools you may need depending on which look you want to try:

  • Coral Red lipstick (I’m using the Zuii organic line I talked about HERE)
  • Concealer
  • Reddish lip pencil (although a neutral one would work fine)
  • Shimmery white eyeshadow (I ALWAYS have a small sample size in my purse)
  • Orange shimmer lip gloss
  • Lip brush

*Traditional Red*

1.  Concealer all over lips (picture above)

2.  Line lips with your lip pencil making a thick line, smudge with your finger

3.  Apply red lipstick

4.  Blot with tissue (pic 1 below)

5.  Re-apply another coat (pic 2 below)

*Color Pop*

1.  Concealer on lips

2.  Take lip brush and apply a coat of your red lipstick (pic 1 below)

3.  Apply orange lip gloss to bring out the more orange hue in your lipstick (pic 2 below)

*Shimmery Light*

1.  Concealer on lips

2.  Take lip brush and apply a coat of your red lipstick

3.  Dab your finger into a shimmery white eye shadow and apply to the inner part of lips

4.  Top with a clear shimmery gloss

    Love these looks, Heather! I’m totally going to try these even though I’m scared about picking the wrong coral for my Asian skin tone!
