The Glamorous Red Lip Look
Discover the secret to creating the perfect, glamorous red lips by renowned makeup artist Karim Rahman.
I begin by preparing the lips, exfoliating them with the Scrub and hydrating them with the White Balm. It’s extremely important to do so in order to achieve the perfect bouche rouge.
Next, I focus on the eyes. I take the Khôl Noir eyeliner and apply it at the root of the upper and lower lashes, blending it in with the Blending Brush. Leave the color most dense at the lash line to truly define the eyes.
To follow, I use Les Ombres eyeshadow palette in Tage. Start by applying closest to the lash line to intensify the eye shape, then blend out over the lid using the Eyeshadow Brush to create a soft gradient effect.
Next, I clean and set the brows with the Eyebrow Serum. After that, I curl the lashes, then apply the Sérum Noir mascara, really insisting at the lash base to add volume. Only use a light coat at the tips of the lashes to prevent them from losing their curl.
Then I tend to the complexion by applying La Terre Brune bronzer, which allows me to lightly sculpt the contours and create a sun-kissed glow.
To finish off, I apply the Pop Art Red lipstick, using the tip of my fingers to further intensify the pigments and create the ideal shape, following the lips’ natural edges. It’s important to then use the Lip Brush to perfect the form, edges and Cupid’s bow.
Finally, I contour the lips with the Rouge Orange lip pencil. And voilà!
