Over the years I've grown to like experimenting. 

Back in college and university it was pretty laid back, just one stroke of eyeliner and my regular lip balm (I've been using Bodyshop's lip balm for years and I still love it!) and I'm ready to go. My interest in beauty sort of grew since way back in 2008 when I started putting on my own make up at shoots and getting advice from make up artists that I meet along the way. 

Now that I'm working, making up becomes part of my daily routine.

My usual make up tools include a peachy eyeshadow tone, bb cream (I use this instead of the foundation), blusher, sometimes bronzer, and the eye liner. Don't really bother using mascara because my lash can never curl *sad either that or I just suck at using eyelash curler. So I prefer using false lashes, the extremely natural looking ones of course.

Today's post is about applying red lipstick. Most times I do envy ladies who can pull off red lips and especially each time when I flip pages in magazines and I see photographs of celebrities in their beautiful gown and red lipstick, I can't help but picture how it would look like on me.

So last Halloween was my first attempt at wearing red lipstick, I've never worn lipstick, ever..

but..I.....surprisingly.....liked it.

I think red lipstick can make or break your look. It is always advisable to avoid heavy eye makeup in order for it to stand out.

Before red lipstick
 After red lipstick

Only eye liner, eyeshadow base and lashes plus my "new" brows <3!

On a side note, I really like the results of my brows after embroidery, it gets more natural each day and I didn't even have to draw my brows.

Tips for applying red lipstick: Use a neutral tone lip liner to outline your lips before applying the colour. Since it was my first time, I took it very slowly because it could look really messy, out of shape and if you have butterfingers like mine, you could risk getting your teeth dirty (stained!) lol

You can also use a concealer to clean up the shape after applying. Enjoy! =)
