How To Wear Red Lips Fearlessly {& a Mary Kay Giveaway}

Move over March Madness! March is all about makeovers!

Forget March Madness, this month is all about Makeover Madness with Mary Kay Makeover Day this Saturday, March 8th!

Anytime is a good time for a new look but this Saturday also happens to be International Women's Day, the perfect opportunity to take some time for yourself, learn pro makeup application techniques, get a gorgeous new look, and have fun with color!

To celebrate Makeover Dey and showcase Mary Kay's vast array of color products, celebrity makeup artist Virginia Linzee created “Delicate Details” – one of two looks that will be showcased on Saturday. Inspired by 2014 runway fashion, the look brings “runway to “reality” and shows us how to wear red lips. I love a bold lip for any occasion but it does require that the rest the face be more subtle to not look overdone.

Here are Virginia’s easy application instructions for a fearless and flawless red lip:

MaryKay Makeover Day

STEP 1: Apply Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Hazelnut to the creases and on the eyelids. Layer on Moonstone, taking it up to the brows. Apply Sparkling White as a pop of color in the middle of the eyelids.
STEP 2: Line upper and lower lash lines with Mary Kay® Deep Brown Eyeliner.
STEP 3: Apply Mary Kay® Lash Love® Lengthening™ Mascara in I ♥ black.
STEP 4: Define brows with Mary Kay® Brow Definer Pencil in Brunette or Mineral Eye Color in Espresso.
STEP 5: Brush on Mary Kay® Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush.
STEP 6: Apply Mary Kay® Creme Lipstick in Red. Blot, then reapply at the center of the lips.
