Red Hot Lips without Red Lipstick

This happened a while ago. I was playing with my makeup drawer, when suddenly I had this crazy idea. I just used 3 things and created very sensual blood red lips that I've only seen in pictures-until now. Checkout the picture below and if you like go through the tutorial. 

I used: 
  • Chap stick 
  • Red Eye Shadow
  • Transparent Lip Gloss 

Start with moisturized lips.  You can use Vaseline if you like, but I believe chap stick works better. Pick some red eye shadow using your ring finger and wear it on your lips just as if you're applying lip balm.It may feel weird at first, but when the results show you're going to love it. Apply the eye shadow as intense you want the color to be. When you have your desired red, swish a transparent lip gloss on top and voila! Try it and let me know how it worked for you.

Tip: Skip the gloss if you want a matte look.
