Cover Acne Scar using Red Lipstick Tips

Red lipstick is often used as a fashion statement, as the bold color on the lips is a sign of beauty and elegance. However, more and more women are experimenting with red lipstick, using it in order to cover acne scars and blemishes. If you are interested in this subject as well, this article is more than perfect for you. In the paragraphs that follow, you will find a number of tips, destined to make the application of red lipstick at the level of the face a simple and straightforward process. Enjoy reading and do not hesitate to share the newfound advice with your friends.

# Use a creamy lipstick, not a matte one

No matter how tempted you might be to choose a matte lipstick, this will not provide the desired results. If you want something to cover acne and blemishes, it is recommended that you choose a creamy lipstick.

# Start light

If this is the first time you are trying out red lipstick to cover acne scars, it is recommended that you begin with a small amount. Then, as you become more comfortable with the application process, you can consider increasing the amount of red lipstick applied on the skin.

# Dab, dab, dab

The trick with red lipstick is that you only have to dab it over the desired acne lesions, blemishes or scars. If you apply it too aggressively, I’m sorry to say it, but you will only end up looking like a clown. Moderation is the key and dabbing are the best way to cover up your problem areas with red lipstick.

# Foundation after the red lipstick

Once you have finished dabbing the red lipstick on all of your problem areas, it is high time you proceeded to the next step. For the application of the foundation, it is recommended that you use a regular makeup sponge. In the beginning, apply the foundation specifically on the problem areas. Then, continue to apply the foundation on the rest of the face, making sure that you have an even application. As you will use the red lipstick & foundation together for the first time, you will definitely notice a huge difference.

# Liquid concealer comes next

If you believe that you should stop at the application of foundation, you still have a thing or two to learn about makeup. Once you have applied the foundation in an even manner, it is time to use the liquid concealer and cover up the problem areas that are still visible. You might have acne scars that are prominent or areas of inflammation. The liquid concealer can ensure that these are properly covered, guaranteeing that your skin tone is even. Do not hesitate to purchase a top-quality liquid concealer, as this is one of the must-haves products when it comes to beauty routines (especially if you are planning on using the red lipstick as instructed in this article).

# Powder for a uniform appearance

After you have finished applying the liquid concealer, it is time to add the powder. This may seem like a lot of work but, in the end, you will definitely be satisfied with the way you look. By choosing a powder of good quality, you will ensure a uniform look, without any areas of your face shining brighter than the other. Follow the general instructions for applying powder and you won’t have any problems regarding this step.

# Luminous powder

This is the last step and the one that will come to complete your beautiful image. While the powder above has served the purpose of providing a uniform appearance, the luminous powder has a higher purpose and that is to act as your bronzer. We would all want to look bronzed, no matter the season but artificial tanning is so damaging to the skin that it is not worth considering. In such situations, a luminous powder might be just the things you needed. Apply it and be sure to smile, as you will look beautiful indeed.
