Mumpty’s “red lipstick survival kit”
Those of us who are avid red lipstick wearers know that really, no matter what product you use, or what you do, red lipstick is a pretty high maintenance look to wear. But we’re not willing to give it up are we – no way!
Sooooo … I thought I’d share with you what I call my “Red Lipstick Survival Kit.” And look, there was no way to pretty it up – it is what it is, and here it is:
♥ a wet wipe
♥ a foundation brush (or whatever you use to apply your foundation)
♥ red lipstick – in this case the Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet.
If you’re anything like me, your red lipstick can be “refreshed” up until about lunchtime by a quick “swipe-over,” but once I’ve had lunch, it really needs a complete overhaul.
So … what I do is this:
Step one: get the wet wipe and a mirror and rub like crazy to get the whole lot off – don’t worry about scrubbing off some of your foundation – that’s why you bought it with you! And if you’re trying to get the Velvetine off, you’ll probably remove half your face makeup doing it!
Step two: once you’ve got all the red lipstick remnants removed, re-apply your foundation around the areas that you’ve had to scrub to get the lipstick off.
Step three: reapply your red lippy and voila! All fresh and pinup-worthy again!
