Makeup trends have seen significant changes over the years, yet there is an enduring appeal to classic techniques. One such technique that stands the test of time is the matte red lip.


The matte red lip has a long and storied history, dating back to the early 1900s. It has always exuded a sense of power and dominance, making it a timeless choice. This iconic look remains relevant and never goes out of style, regardless of current trends. Pairing matte red lips with flawless skin and minimal makeup creates a fresh and light appearance that still packs a punch.


Below, Savoir Flair reveals how to achieve the perfect bold-red pout in three simple steps.

1

Prep

To achieve a fabulous red lip, start with a good base. Begin by exfoliating your lips with a homemade lip scrub. All you need is a bit of coconut oil and sugar. Mix them together and gently rub the scrub on your lips to get rid of any dryness. Afterward, wipe off the excess scrub to ensure your lipstick stays put and lasts longer.

Line

Next, take a small dab of red liquid lipstick onto a fine lip brush and carefully line your lips. Opt for a blendable formula that applies smoothly, ensuring it locks in the color without any bleeding or feathering. Using a modest amount as a liner allows you to shape your lips to perfection and even create a subtle illusion of natural volume by extending the color slightly beyond the lip line.

Fill

The final step is to fill in the lips, smoothly working the product across the entire lip area. Remember, a little product can go a long way, so there’s no need to apply too much. Using a moderate amount ensures a comfortable finish. Allow your lips to dry naturally without pressing them together. By allowing the formula to set and lock in, you can enjoy long-lasting wear for up to 12 hours.
