First, line and fill your lips with Crimson Lip Pencil - this will make your entire look last through multiple glasses of the bubbly.

The Best Everyday Red Lipstick Look

Wearing red lipstick every day may seem a little over the top, but we promise, red can be a daily look if you do it right. The key to creating a soft, red lipstick look is swapping your lipstick for a self-adjusting lip stain. That's right, grab your Forever Red Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain, and get ready to wear red all season long! Create our everyday red lip look with these three steps. First, line and fill your lips with Terra Cotta Lip Pencil. Swipe Forever Red Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain on top of that. And finally, dab Snow Berry PureGloss Lip Gloss to the center of your bottom lip.
