Be fearless this season with a makeup classic. COWGIRL‘s makeup artist Julie Koeth shares her secrets for the perfect red lip.

“Red is a commitment,” says Julie. “Because it’s such a vibrant color, people are going to notice it.”

“Put concealer over the lips first,” says Julie. “Apply with a brush, and finish with the same color of red pencil to really define it so it doesn’t bleed out.”

Turn to your concealer brush if you make a lipstick misstep for a quick correction.
