How To Wear MAC Russian Red Lipstick Every Day

MAC russian red lipstick

I think most Filipinas are scared of wearing red lipstick. I personally like red lipsticks. I have a few in my collection. I wear them whenever I feel like it, day or night. In today’s post, I’d like to show you how you can wear red lipstick every day with just this tube of MAC Russian Red.


Get ready for work and look fresh and pretty with this stained look.

Pucker up and use your finger to dab just a little bit of the lipstick in the center of your lower and upper lips. Smack them together and you’ve got a pretty stained lip look, reminiscent of Koreanovelas.


Got a client meeting? No worries! Impress your clients with your go-getter attitude and your I-mean-business lips.

everyday look


Get your tube of red lippy and apply with your finger all over your lips. Apply lip balm before or after for a lighter shade.
This is also a perfect everyday look.


It’s hump day! Time to get together with the girls for a quiet (or fun!) night out. This look is perfect. Not too subtle and not too in-your-face.

going out with the girls


Apply lip balm all over your lips. Apply lipstick directly from the tube. Just one swipe will do. If it’s too red, blot. You can also apply a thin layer of clear gloss.


Are you going out with your sweetie tonight for a weekly catch-up/date? Here’s the perfect red lip for you.

Apply two swipes of red lipstick on your prepped lips. Remember to always use lip balm with red lipstick as it can be very drying. Blot to get rid of excess lipstick.


Thank God it’s Friday! Do you have to attend a party later in the evening? How about an event? Here’s the perfect red lip that will make an impression.

Swipe your red lipstick twice then apply red lip gloss. I used MAC Wonder Woman for this look. Remember to apply lipstick on the corners of your mouth so that you won’t have blank spaces when you talk or open your mouth. Use a lip brush to make this look.

  1. I agree with your recommendations. :) Sheer red is the way to go to make it wearable for day and in a formal setting. At least the red registers more as a tint. The gloss also helps keep it light and easygoing.
