Beauty Quickie: Red lip color is a beauty trend, but many women stay away from it because such a shade can be a little more boisterous than other tints. Therefore, how can you wear red lipstick without all the intensity? One way is to apply the red lip color (make sure it matches your skin’s undertone) then blot it off so that it is more of a lip stain. Another option would be to apply the lipstick with your finger instead of straight from the tube. This way you will be able to control how much product is applied, thus controlling the color as well.
