Question
QUESTION: Hello, how are you going? :-) I saw a photo of a model wearing red glossy lipstick and it looks really nice. I would like to copy that look, but it also looks like in the photo like she has put some kind of white or silver on her bottom lip. Here is a link to the photo, it is 2 photos but the one I am looking at is the girl with the red glossy lips. I was wondering if you might know how I can recreate that makeup look that she has on her lips. Thanks heaps for your time, I do appreciate it a lot :-) Kind Regards, from Christina :-)

ANSWER: Hi Christina,

I don't see the link to the pictures. Here are links to some red lips i've done and I can tell you how to recreate them. Hopefully they are close to what your looking for.

This first look I used a brown toned lip liner, red lipstick and finished with a gold toned gloss. Make sure you blend the lip liner in well.

This next look is more of a deeper darker red. I used a clear lip liner, red lipstick, red lip gloss and a copper toned lip gloss.

Answer
Hello again:)

Looks like the white/silver you see is just light reflecting off of her gloss. To accomplish that look I would use clear liner, red lipstick a little gold tone gloss and maybe a high shine gloss. You can sample and play with different tones of reds at most makeup counters. It's also important to do a red that goes well with your skin tone.
