As far as lipstick shades go, you can’t go wrong with a classic red. While this iconic hue may conjure up images of a classic red Hollywood pout paired with a full lash fringe and not much else, there is quite a few red lipstick looks you can try. If you want to switch up your makeup routine to incorporate a red pout but can’t seem to settle on the perfect look for you, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’re sharing six foolproof red lipstick makeup looks that are so chic you’ll want to rock a red pout every day.
Want your red lipstick to be the star of the show? Pair a glowing, radiant complexion with a deep, burgundy lip. This deep wine hue provides the perfect contrast against your radiant skin and is great for the fall and winter seasons.
Step #1. Prime your face. Start off all red lipstick makeup looks by applying a makeup primer to your face. Use one with a radiant formula, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer, for a glow boost.
Step #2. Perfect your complexion. Next, smooth on a foundation with a coordinating radiant finish, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation. Apply it with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender for a seamless look.
Step #3. Amp up your glow. For a touch more radiance, apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops to your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and the tip of your nose using your fingertip.
Step #4. Apply mascara. Leave your eyes bare—aside from mascara—so your red lips can be the center of your look. Layer on a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Washable Mascara, Lasting Volume to amplify your lashes.
Step #5. Grab your lipstick. Now for the moment you’ve been waiting for! Carefully apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Crayon, Lasting Wear, Smudge Resistant in Cherryfic for the perfect burgundy pout.
Red lipstick and bronze eyes are a signature combo that’s perfect for any occasion. Even better, creating the look is easy! All you need to do is give your lids an all-over wash of bronze with the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Bronze Light and swipe on your favorite red lipstick (we love the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain in I Am Worth It). Easy, peasy!
Have you considered coordinating your blush with your lipstick? If you’re hoping to perfectly complement your lipstick, peach cheeks wear beautifully with an orangey-red shade on the lips. This warm-toned look is ideal for those who have warm undertones, as it will bring out your golden skin! Sweep the L’Oréal Paris Summer Belle Makeup Blush Please! in Blushin’ in Saint-Tropez over your cheeks, then smooth the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain in I Achieve over your lips.
We aren’t done with glowing skin just yet! You don’t have to pair your red lipstick with an all-over glow to achieve a radiant look, instead draw attention to your cheekbones with a shimmering highlight. First, use a fan brush to dust the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder onto your cheekbones. Then, color your pout with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in True Red.
Red lips may be your muse, but they’re not the only part of your face that deserves some attention. Let your brows do the talking for a statement eye and lip look that isn’t over-the-top. You can leave your face makeup simple and ditch the eyeshadow for this one! Here’s what to do.
Step #1. Fill in your brows. Start by brushing your eyebrows into place with a spoolie. Then, use the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Mechanical Pencil to fill in any sparse areas and fine-tune your brow shape. After you’ve used the pencil where necessary, comb through your brows with a spoolie once more to blend the product for a natural appearance.
Step #2. Apply a brow gel. To keep your brow hairs in place and set your look, sweep a clear brow gel, like the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara in Clear, over your arches.
Step #3. Paint your lips. You know what to do! Smooth on the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Enamel Red for a glossy red pout.
Last but not least on our list of red lipstick looks, we couldn’t leave out this classic red lipstick combo: red lips and winged eyeliner! To guarantee a flawless wing, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Flash Cat Eye Waterproof Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner, which has a removable wing stencil. Finish with your red lipstick, and you’ll be ready for your close-up!
