Make it Wearable: How to tone down rockin' red lips.

Happy International Women's Day, Beauties!!

Red is the colour of the day, so many of you will be wearing a red lip, like this Velvet Glimmer look!

Personally I love red lipstick, but it can be a little intimidating for some people who are used to a more neutral look. I'm going to show you an easy way to tone down red lipstick so it's more wearable.

It's really simple:

  1.  Apply red lipstick. (I used my Eyeko Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen in Lip Lovin')
  2.  Blot with a tissue.
  3.  Apply a clear lip gloss over the top.
  4.  Enjoy having soft, glossy red lips!

Are you wearing red lipstick/gloss/balm today?


  1. Yes! This is my little secret for subtly rocking red lips at work. I've got to try that Eyeko lippy. Looks gorgeouuuuus!

  2. It is, I don't think they stock it anymore though :( you can still get it from!

  3. Not today but they are intimidated since I'm usually bare or pinkish.

  4. Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me is a great balm to try if you don't usually wear red. It's just slightly tinted.


Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment! :)
