Most days I stick to a more subtle, everyday color on my lips. But when I’m feeling bold, Blu-Red LipSense is the way to go! It is the fire-engine red shade of LipSense by SeneGence, which means even though it’s a bold color, it won’t smudge off on everything you touch!

Blu Red is a bright, true red shade that is perfect for those who want to make a statement with their lipstick. Whether you’re going to a special event, a night out with friends, or simply want to add some glam to your everyday look, Blu Red LipSense is the perfect choice.


Base Face

In this look, I am using Medium Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer as my base layer. But if you prefer or need a fuller coverage, then you could use the MakeSense Foundation in your shade (contact me if you need help color matching).

MakeSense Foundation: Tan

ShadowSense for a Tinted Smokey Eyeshadow look

For this look, I wanted a little bit of red tint on my eyes to go with the bold red lip. The subtle red in the Candied Cocoa Shimmer gave me just what I wanted.

 How to Apply ShadowSense for an Red Tinted Ombré Eyeshadow Look

Step 1: Apply the medium shade as the base layer by dabbing with your finger all across the lid and up to your brow.

Step 2: Using the dark shade, add a natural smoky eye by applying to the outer corner and then bringing the product inward by dabbing with your finger.

Step 3: Then apply the lightest color by patting directly with the applicator wand, starting from the inner corner and ending in the middle of the lid.


Add Mascara

The VolumeIntense Waterproof Mascara from SeneGence is one of my all time favorite products, because it grows your lashes while you wear it!

LipSense & Gloss

Blu Red is the true red…like Fire Engine red shade of LipSense by SeneGence. In this look I did something a little different than normal: I started by first lining the outline of my lip with Fire LipSense, another great shade of red. I topped it all off with Glossy Gloss to seal in the long-lasting color.

How to Apply LipSense for Long Lasting Color:

Step 1: Clean your lips and dry thoroughly.

Step 2: Shake LipSense tube well.

Step 3: Open the tube and wipe off any excess product from the applicator wand.

Step 4: With your lips parted place the applicator on one corner of your bottom lip and use a sweeping motion to brush the product on all the way to the other corner. DO NOT sweep back and forth.

Step 5: Use the same technique to apply the product to your top lip.

***Allow lips to dry for 5-10 seconds in between coats***

Step 6: Repeat steps 4-5 two more times (3 coats on each lip).

Step 7: Apply gloss all over lips to set in your gorgeous new color! (Apply gloss as often as necessary)
