How To Wear Bright Lipstick
Make-up artist Lizzie Court shows you how to wear the latest catwalk trend of bright lipstick, in fuschia pink or bright orange
Step 1: Prime
Before applying any make-up, prime the skin with moisturiser.
Apply foundation with a damp sponge, starting in the centre of the face and working out to the hairline. Remember to apply the foundation onto the eyelids and underneath the jawline to avoid a tide mark.
Step 2: Conceal
Use a cream concealer a tone lighter than your natural skin color on darker areas such as under the eyes, around the nose, and on any blemishes.
Set the concealer with some loose translucent powder using a wide, flat brush. Use a larger powder brush to set the rest of the face with powder.
Step 3: Eyeshadow
For neutral eyes, use a fawn cream eyeshadow and apply up to the eye socket with a large eyeshadow brush.Blend the outer edges with a clean brush for a soft, natural look.
Step 4: Mascara
Curl the eyelashes before applying mascara for extra impact. Get as close to the roots as you can and hold for about 3 seconds. Use black mascara, and wiggle the wand as you move up and out to get the lashes fully coated. If you make any mistakes, use a clean mascara wand or toothbrush and brush through the lashes. Apply a little mascara to the bottom lashes to open up the eyes.
Step 5: Lips
Lizzie is going to apply fuschia lipstick but you can also use bright lip gloss for a less dramatic look. Dab the color on with a lip brush, starting in the centre and working outwards.
To make sure the look lasts all evening, pat the lips with a tissue and reapply the lipstick, again concentrating the colour in the centre of the lips. For extra impact, apply a gloss in bright orange over the lipstick
Step 6: Blusher
Complement your lips with a bright pink blusher, applied to the highest part of the cheekbone. Sweep the powder onto the blusher brush and tap off any excess. Sweep around the cheek in a C shape, building up the color gradually.
