Keep it Simple with Red Lips
Check out this fun pic of Elle Johnson that I took earlier this year!
Ellen Johnson is an amazing TV writer who is currently working on The Glades and other cool upcoming shows. I had the pleasure of meeting her while I was working on the TV show, Saving Grace. Elle decided that it was time for her to update her publicity pictures…so that’s exactly what we did!
So we took the season’s hottest trend – RED LIPS, and kept everything else natural!
First I mixed TEMPTU PRO S/B Foundation #009 and #006. I also used a little TEMPTU PRO Concealer under her eyes and added just a touch of the yellow #031 S/B Adjuster.
I wanted to keep her makeup simple, so nothing could overshadow those lips!
Can you believe this was Elle’s first time wearing red lipstick?! She was a fun sport and allowed me to try it out on her and she ended up looking gorgeous it in! She loved it!
How to Wear Red Lips – Some TEMPTU PRO Tips:
- If you’re wearing a bold red lip, keep the eye makeup light. Stick with neutrals, or even just foundation & concealer
- Contour those cheeks! Using a darker foundation, or a bronze color will really give you defined cheek bones that really go great with red lips!
- Make sure to conceal around the lips once you have your lips painted on! Red lipstick smudges easily and concealer can cover up any mistakes
- Add a highlight color around the lips to make your lips pop!
Be confident when rocking a bold lip – True beauty starts from within!
