Seductive and timeless, a perfectly applied red lipstick is a swift way to transform into a confident woman of the lively roaring 1920’s.
A page taken out of the legendary tale of character Jay Gatsby’s infamous parties that celebrated the mystery and vibrancy that oozes from the dramatic adaptation of the classic American novel, The Great Gatsby, is a makeup inspiration that will boost your spirit. The extravagant displays of exclusive celebrations, a life living in excess, paint a prospect fitting for embellished hair pieces, sparkling attire and of course an impeccable rich red lip color.
Bold with high opacity and creamy rich texture, a traditional red lipstick can be a dramatic addition that provides instant allure. Worn in the day with generous mascara and glowing skin, a rich red lipstick looks youthful for a lunch meeting, work or as energizing color therapy to a bland day. The drama and lavish nature of a red lip will look classically chic for prom, wedding, photos or an evening dinner date with a complimenting decadent eye makeup.
Prepare lips by exfoliating with a gentle scrub and let a small amount of moisturizing balm absorb on the lips for about three minutes before applying any color. Fill and shape lips with a waxy red lip liner and smudge with a fine lip brush. Next, complete the look by filling in lips with one of the next three long wearing, attractive red lip colors in every price range.
