From the red carpet to the runway, red lipstick has quickly become fall’s biggest makeup trend. The shade of red doesn’t matter this fall; it can be a bright cherry red or a deep wine. Red lips will make you look polished even if you don’t have time for dramatic makeup.

The trick to wearing red lipstick is to wear neutral, basic colors, like Freida Pinto does here. An ensemble in black and white will make the red stand out even more. You’ll also want to wear concealer with red lips to cover up any redness and make those lips stand out. Think vampire, a la wearing all black like Emma Stone, when going for the red lip look.

The number one rule when wearing red lips is to apply lip balm before bed. With such a strong lipstick color, dry, cracked, chapped lips will show right through. You can also exfoliate your lips with a lip scrub to help get rid of dry skin.

Matte or Not?

If you don’t know whether to wear a matte or glossy color, matte is often the low maintenance way to go. Matte colors are not as messy and keep the color in place. A high gloss, on the other hand, can be the perfect match for a dramatic ensemble.

If red lips intimidate you, start with a lip stain in red.

Once you feel more comfortable with the color, go for the full red lips.

The one way to make your pucker look perfect in red is to have brilliantly white teeth. Don’t have time or the funds to go to the dentist? Try any take home kit for teeth whitening that can be found at your local pharmacy.
