Long Lasting Red Lips this Holiday Season

This holiday season, how do you get that much coveted bold red lips? Almost all my favorite youtube gurus are making their Holiday tutorial with red lips!! yay!! I have never dared to wear red lipstick when going out since I felt like a whore wearing one. haha I just envy those girls who can pull off red lips with such a breeze. This time, I am braver to wear one on a Christmas Party. My ultimate problem -- How to make it last. Surely, parties would entail a lot of eating and drinking. Going to the washroom for touch ups every now and then is a big distraction (at least for me).  Here is a simple tip on how I make my red lips lasts longer:

First: Make sure that your lips are well moisturized. I used my Vaseline Lip Therapy in cherry.
Then, coat your lips with red lip tint. I use my Tony Moly Lip and Cheek tint in Red Apple. This is the trick to make the color lasts longer on your lips. This is your base color. The lipstick may fade when you eat and drink but the red tint will not fade easily. It also prevents the lipstick from getting to your teeth since you will use less lipstick .
Define your lips with a red lip liner. I am using the Nichido Lip Liner in Blaze. 


Apply your red lipstick. I used my Nyx ELECTRA. You may use red tint and a lip liner alone but I applied red lipstick to accentuate the color more. 


It is NYX ELECTRA NOT EROS.
Swatches of the products I used. 


 Finding the right shade of red is really hard for me. I think this shade suits me.. Don't you think?
What shade of lipstick are you planning to wear this Christmas?
Care to share?
Godbless everyone.
