Christina Aguilera’s perfect red pout

celebrity look, Top Billing explains how to diy Christina Aguilera's red lip

Christina Aguilera’s famous look is her red pout
Despite her ever-changing appearance, more often than not, you will find her sporting her classic red lip

Every woman has the ability to wear that sexy red pout. The secret is choosing the right shade of red that works with your colouring and skin tone.

A woman with cool complexions and hair colours such as ash blondes and brunettes should stick to a cherry red colour while redheads should use a more subtle shade of red such as coral or wine red colours. When selecting that perfect red you should also take into consideration you lip shape. If your lips are thin, lighter shades of red will be more flattering, while those with fuller lips should look for deeper, darker reds.

When starting with your red lip application, make sure to line your lips carefully with a neatly sharpened lip pencil, your lip pencil should not be darker than your lipstick shade but rather the same colour .
Outline your lips with your lip liner, then apply the lipstick with a lip brush to the centre of your lips, then brush colour out toward the edges. Finally blot with a tissue.

To prevent bleeding, apply a little concealer around the border of your mouth and for a red lip that lasts longer, one should opt for a matte red lipstick. To avoid smudging lipstick on your teeth, after applying, put your finger in your mouth, seal your lips around it, and then slowly pull it. This helps remove excess colour.
When you go for this look, keep the rest of your make-up neutral, by using a natural taupe eye shadow. For Christina Aguilera’s look, id suggest applying a black liquid liner on to the top lash line, angling it upwards and outwards at the outer corner of each eye.

Christina has a flawless complexion so be sure to use a good coverage foundation with a matte finish as well as a pink rosy blush, for her baby doll cheeks.

To complete this look, apply sufficient mascara, I suggest using mascara that volumizes, lengthens and defines.

After following these steps, there is nothing left to say other than go out and poutϑ
