A red lip is a go-to for many, and typically yields such glamorous results that it’s worth the constant fuss and compact mirror checks. This said, we wouldn’t mind not having to worry that our rouge has smudged or wiped completely off on our Starbucks cup at work or champagne glass in the evening. Enter Teen Vogue’s Beauty and Health director Elaine Welteroth, who along with DJ Chelsea Leyland, set out to impart pearls of wisdom on how to achieve a classic red lip that will stay in place. Basically it comes down to the following secret weapons:

Lip Scrub – Exfoliates lips to get rid of all the dead skin, ensuring smoothness.

Lip Balm – Keeps your pout moisturized.

Concealer – Outlines lips to accentuate shape.
