You’ve seen all the stars wear it, from Gwen Stefani to Katy Perry and Angelina Jolie. We’re talking about the perfect red lip that doesn’t fade and looks perfectly polished. When applying such a bold color, it’s very easy to make mistakes.

Many women wonder if they can pull off red lipstick. What if I look like a clown? What if it gets on my teeth? The truth is, a great red lip is easy to pull off with the right tools.

Exfoliate lips. Run a clean toothbrush under warm water. Gently rub on lips, getting all areas. Make sure you skip this step if your lips are sensitive or intolerant.
