Camila Coelho is an Instagram queen and beauty goddess. With over seven million followers, this lady knows a thing or two about beauty. She’s now teamed up with Lisa Eldridge and Lancome Official to launch her very own lipstick line called L’Absolu Rouge X Camila Coelho. 

To help you love your lips and the lipstick you wear, Coelho dishes out her best lipstick secrets. Here they are:

If you’re not used to wearing bright lip shades, you might feel terrified of puckering up with a brazen red. If that’s you, try blotting a little color on your lips and see how it goes. The next time, try blotting on a little more to increase the intensity.
