    Tu-Anh: Hey there, my name is Tu-Anh and I am going to show you how to wear red lipstick like French women do. Now, I am going to show you how to apply lip color and on Christina I have already chosen a warm base lip color, so we already have the lip liner. What we are going to do is now use a lip brush to apply the lip color. You want to make sure that you color in the whole lips, it is always better to apply lip color with a lip brush because it just comes on a lot more even and it's nicer and you can not mess it up because you can control the brush. What I want to do is just really color, you basically just go over and fill the whole lips in and because you already have the liner as a base color you do not have to worry about the lipstick coming off after you eat or drink. Just going over right here and I do not know if any of you know this but, if you want your teeth to look whiter you wear blue-red. The last thing I am going to do, I am going to just use it Q-tip and I am just going to go over and shape the lips a little bit better, in case there is any smearing or smudging and that is how you apply red lipstick like French women.
