Red Lipstick Tutorial- Modern Minimalism [Video]

This tutorial is centred around editorial red lipstick. Our aim is to contrast the natural looking elements of skin and brows with a perfectly crisp red lip. A healthy dose of highlighting and contouring ensures that the final look is striking while embodying modern minimalism.

Final Look:

    this is a GREAT video!!! it would be really awesome if, perhaps, ur lights werent so bright that way we can see a difference on the skin as you add highlighter ect ect. seeing a difference with each step is really what makes watching tutorials so fun. you are amazing!! please keep them coming!

  3. That is stunning Karima! I am so glad you are making videos, your pictures look professional with your new cam – love that! You may know that already but red IS my fav colour of all times. I just love looking at every tutorial featuring something red, especially lips. Your features are amazing and so perfect! I am now going to wear my YSL red or Chanel pirate. I want more of such beautiful posts ;)
