So you've finally gotten your hands on that divine red lipstick you've been eyeing pretty much forever. Make the most of a timeless purchase by wearing it five different ways—one for every day of the workweek!

Go for that K-beauty gradient look! Swipe some red on your inner lips, then simply press your puckers firmly together for an ombre effect.
If you're reaaally prissy about keeping your lippie ultra-neat throughout the day, we recommend you use a lip liner to trace your lip's natural shape first before filling in. Foolproof!
Or, you could apply your red of choice straight from tube, only defining the silhouette with lip brush afterwards. This technique works if you want edges that are clean but not too sharp!
For a flushed, natural look that's more rosy than ruby, rub a bit of lipstick onto your finger and dot it on your pucker using gentle strokes.
High-shine kisses are all the rage right now, so consider topping your scarlet pout with a blinding coat of gloss. The result is so glam.
