Need suggestions for lip color

I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but recently I’ve been struggling getting a nice lip color. I used to be able to get some pretty reddish lips on my newborns, but lately have been ending up with a strange pink that just looks “off” to me. What are your favorite colors/combinations for pretty crimson lips or natural looking pinkish lips? Thanks!

I really like genesis Quinacridone crimson for lips. That’s all I used on this baby and it looks really nice and soft (photo taken before brows or hair)


I use A little bit of thinning medium with crimson and a hint of black and dark purple

How many layers do you usually have to do before you see enough color?

I think I did two on him. Mixed with thin medium

This is after just one layer on the blank kit.


You are so good! Your painting looks like it is done by someone who knows what they are doing. I will be happy when I can get good at this…
