The Ultimate Guide to the Perfect Red Velvet Lipstick

January 12, 2024

Red lipstick is a timeless option that can go well with all kinds of different looks. That’s why it’s a staple and it always will be. So, if you’re on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick, consider getting a red velvet lipstick. Today, we will explore why red velvet lipstick is such a good option, explain how to choose the right shade for you and provide a quick guide on how to apply it well.

What is Red Velvet Lipstick?

When it comes to lipstick, there are a few options to choose from. You have glossy lipstick, which gives your lips shine. It pops a lot more and draws attention to the lips. You also have matte lipstick, which doesn’t have a shiny finish. It’s more pigmented and opaque, so it’s perfect for a bold look. If you want something in the middle, that’s what velvet lipstick is for! It’s one of the most popular formulations out there because it’s the best of both worlds. It looks like velvet on the lips, but the texture is creamy and soft. This is why red velvet lipstick can easily become one of your favorite options no matter the occasion.

 

How to Choose a Red Velvet Lipstick?

If you’re on the hunt for red velvet lipstick, choosing the right shade for your skin is the most important decision. Why? Because it will determine how well the lipstick looks on you. So, here are a few tips depending on your skin tone:

 

● Red Velvet Lipstick for Deep Skin

Deep skin tones can take advantage of all kinds of red velvet lipstick shades. Both warm (yellow and orange)  and cool (blue and purple) red undertones will work very well for you. So, you can look for shades like brick red, wine red, cherry red, raspberry red, and many others. They will all look amazing on you and complement your deep skin, so it’s a matter of personal preference.

 

● Red Velvet Lipstick for Olive Skin

Olive skin is better suited by warm undertones, so consider red velvet lipstick with a yellow or orange base. Poppy red and coral red are two go-to options you can try. But you can also consider brick red and terracotta red, which will also look great on olive skin. Overall, avoid cool undertones in your red lipstick because it can make your skin look a bit pasty and dull.

 

● Red Velvet Lipstick for Medium Skin

If you have medium skin, you can be more versatile with your red velvet lipstick. Cool and warm reds will both complement your skin. That said, you should avoid corals because they can make your skin look dull. While both undertones will look good on you, medium skin is better suited by warm-toned reds. Brick red, brown-red, and orange-red are good options to consider.

 

● Red Velvet Lipstick for Light Skin

When you have light skin, you have to consider the undertone of your skin to find the right option for you. If your undertone is warm to neutral, options like brick red, orange-red, and other warm-toned shades. If your undertone is cool, look for darker red shades with purple or blue undertones. Berry red, burgundy red, wine red, and even pink red can look great on you.

 

● Red Velvet Lipstick for Fair Skin

Last but not least, fair skin calls for a red velvet lipstick that complements the natural pink flush of the skin. Of course, you still have to consider your undertone to find the right shade of red for you. So, the same things we discussed for light skin apply here. Consider options like cranberry red, brick red, or true red, depending on whether your undertone is cool, warm, or neutral.

 

How to Apply Red Velvet Lipstick Like a Professional?

Now that you know how to find your perfect red velvet lipstick shade, let’s explore the best application techniques:

 

1. Exfoliate Your Lips

The first thing you need to do before applying a red velvet lipstick or even a matte one is to exfoliate your lips. People don’t always consider lip prep, but it’s a great way to guarantee a smooth application and help the lipstick last longer. So, find a lip scrub or make one at home to remove dry skin. Then, apply a nice lip balm and leave it on until it’s time to do your lips.

 

2. Line Them Up

After you remove the lip balm and dry your lips well, you should line your lips. Use a lip liner that matches the shade of your lips or of the lipstick you’re wearing. Lining your lips will allow you to define the edges, which will make the lipstick application more precise. If you need your lipstick to last longer, you can use your lip liner as a primer. To do that, cover your lips completely with the lip liner.

 

3. Master Your Application Technique

Putting lipstick on is a bit of an art. We recommend you start from the cupid’s bow and apply the lipstick outward. This will give you more coverage. If you struggle with precision, you can use a lip brush. The lip brush is particularly helpful if you have a tube of lipstick that has lost its shape and become rounder with use.

 

4. Set and Go

Once you’re done applying your red velvet lipstick, you can blot the excess with a tissue if you need to. If you want the lipstick to last a little longer, dusting a little translucent powder over your lips will help. With your red velvet lipstick set, your look will be complete and you’ll be ready to go.
