Have you seen our video tutorial for the perfect red lip?

Iconic beauty looks go something like this: the perfect cat eye flick, the Kardashian Kontour, and the dramatic red lip. While it takes hours of practice to really master the first two makeup techniques, a red lip is the beauty look you can rock without having to spend all day in front of a magnifying mirror.

It's not as simple as just whacking it on, however; to get the most out of it, there are a few handy little tips you should know. Let us show you how to get a gorgeous red lip that won't bleed or transfer and will stay put all day - or night - long.

For this tutorial, we used:

  • Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet shade 05 Berry Much
  • Bourjois Contour Edition Lip Pencil shade 06 Tout Rouge
  • Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow in 01 Intense Extrait
  • Bourjois Effet 3D Gloss in 18 Transparent
  • (Aisling wears) Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer in 51

You can snap up all the products used at Boot.ie.
