The Perfect Pin Up Red

    Ladies swoon for the pin up girl makeup these days and I’m weighing in on the *perfect* red lips!

Cat eye liner and red lips is the definition of pin up but finding the right makeup is hard. I’m not much into makeup and being fully done up but I love a good red lip. There is one brand but two shades as my go-to.

(Below) To the left is Urban Decay Gush. To the right is Urban Decay F-Bomb. I use their Revolution line with a semi-matte finish and a long wear. I also use Urban Decay Primer Pencil to help eliminate feathering and smudging. I have tried many brands in the past, such as NYX but I haven’t found them to have the long lasting power like Urban Decay. I also don’t like to spend top dollar on lipstick so to find one that’s great quality and price, I was sold.

Perfect application:

  1. Start with exfoliating your lips. Get any dead skin off so you have the perfect pout all day.
  2. Moisturize before application. I love EOS brand products.
  3. The Primer Pencil is next, concentrated on the outer part of your lip.
  4. Next, apply a thin layer of the lipstick and pat it with a tissue to create your base.
  5. Finally, apply a health coat of lipstick and prepare to turn heads.
