7) Apply 3 coats of black mascara.

Flawless Red Lips:

Another classic, especially for the holidays red lips are about as glamorous as you can get.

Products to use:

1) Line lips with red lip liner. Then, fill lips in with the liner.

2) Using a lip brush(for a more precise application), apply lipstick to lips.

3) Using a concealer that matches your skin tone, outline lips outside of liner. Then, blend it in. Don’t use a lot of concealer. This step will make sure that your lipstick doesn’t feather.
