Everyday Red Lipstick Makeup Tutorial

  1. Charlotte's Hydration & Radiance Skin Duo includes Charlotte's Magic Cream and Magic Eye Rescue eye cream

    Step 1: Perfectly Prepped Skin

    Before you apply your everyday red lipstick makeup look, it’s important to prep and prime your skin with supercharged, hydrating skincare. My Hydration & Radiance Skin Duo is a magic skin ritual for the face, neck and under-eyes; it includes my iconic Charlotte’s Magic Cream and Magic Eye Rescue eye cream and is perfect for creating a smoother, brighter-looking canvas for your makeup to glide onto.

    First, massage Charlotte’s Magic Cream into the face and neck using my Tilbury Tap technique. The instant-turnaround face cream is formulated with my Magic 8 Matrix of research-powered skincare ingredients such as hydrating hyaluronic acid, smoothing effect bionymph peptide and brightening vitamin C, giving the complexion an immediate skin revival.

    Then, take Magic Eye Rescue on your ring finger and lightly tap the nourishing formula onto the eye area for smoother-looking under-eyes. The formula is enriched with time-released retinol that helps to smooth the appearance of skin over time, as well as hydrating ingredients that provide an instant eye refresh ahead of applying foundation, concealer and powder.

  5. Colour Chameleon cream eyeshadow pencil in red-brown Bronzed Garnet

    Step 5: Everyday Eye Look

    Red lipstick is truly timeless and is always the star of the show, so I love to pair it with a neutral eye look that lets the lips do the talking. To create an everyday eye look that complements your red lipstick, I recommend using this trio of eye-enhancing beauty secrets: Colour Chameleon cream eyeshadow pencil, The Classic powder eyeliner, and Full Fat Lashes mascara.

    Colour Chameleon in Bronzed Garnet is a perfect product to complement your red lipstick! This cream eyeshadow pencil is a red-toned bronze with subtle shimmer that accentuates the natural twinkle of your eyes. Swipe it onto the centre of your lid and along the bottom lash line for easy, eye-defining colour, then use your finger or the Eye Blender Brush to diffuse the edges and create a soft, sultry look.

    Put the finishing touches on your eyes with The Classic and Full Fat Lashes. With The Classic in Classic Brown, glide along the upper lash line and flick upwards and outwards to create an understated feline flick that enhances the appearance of your eyes, then add lashings and lashings of Full Fat Lashes mascara to give the eyelashes buildable volume with a gorgeous, glossy finish.

    Step 6: Sculpted-Looking, Hollywood Complexion

    My Hollywood Contour Wand Duo is the key to a glowing, sculpted-looking complexion! I designed my Hollywood Contour Wand as an easy liquid contour that blends effortlessly to create the appearance of a chiselled, Hollywood complexion. It pairs perfectly with my Beauty Light Wands – shimmering liquid highlighters inspired by red-carpet beauty lights that make the high points of the face pop!

    To contour, swipe the Hollywood Contour Wand onto the temples, hollows of the cheeks, sides of the nose and the jawline, then easily blend out using the larger end of the Hollywood Complexion Brush. Then, choose your Beauty Light Wand and apply to the tops of the cheekbones and the inner corners of your eyes for an ethereal beauty glow!

  7. Airbrush Flawless Lip Blur liquid lipstick in Ruby Blur, a true ruby red

    Step 7: Everyday Red Lipstick

    Darlings, it’s time to apply your everyday red lipstick look! My NEW! Airbrush Flawless Lip Blur is a hydrating liquid lipstick formula that feels comfortable to wear during the daytime, into the evening or all night long!

    I created two gorgeous red shades of my matte-meets-moisture liquid lipstick – choose Flame Blur for a vibrant, orange-red lipstick look inspired by summer heat, or Ruby Blur for a bright, ruby-red lipstick look inspired by glistening jewels. Both shades are flattering, versatile options for your everyday red lipstick look and can be worn blurred or bold to unlock your dream red lips.

    To apply Airbrush Flawless Lip Blur, swipe the diamond-shaped applicator onto the centre of the lips and glide towards the outer corners following their natural shape. For a BLURRED look, lightly tap around the edges of your lipstick for a just-bitten effect, and for a BOLD look, use the applicator to precisely line the lips with statement, matte lip colour.
