In the words of Taylor Swift, “And I got that red lip classic thing that you like”…Yes, her and I have 1 thing in common at least, and that is our love of lipstick. Specifically red lipstick. There’s just something about it that’s so classy, it can really elevate your entire look. I feel like not enough of us women step outside our comfort zone and just go for it! Anyone can wear red, it just depends on the shade you need for your skin tone. Since I’m very pale, I know I look best in reds that have a blue-ish tint to them (if that makes sense). I want to share with you 4 great red lipsticks that I use and hopefully this will inspire some of you to go pick up your own and try them out 🙂
1st, before applying your lipstick, make sure you scrub your lips with a good exfoliant. I use this yummy smelling one from LUSH Cosmetics.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in “Love That Red” is that perfect true red, there are no orange or pink undertones. It’s a very versatile color that goes with everything. Also, this stuff goes on great and is very moisturizing.
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Cruella” is another great shade, but is a deeper red with a magenta hue to it. I’d say it’s a pretty sexy shade and is especially great for a night out!
Kat Von D Lipstick is a fun orangey-red shade that I like a lot. It goes on matte and has good staying power. I like to wear an all black outfit and then put this on for a nice pop of color 🙂
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in “Venizia” is a pretty pinky red that will be great for the summer months. I got it in my Birchbox months back and loved it. it dries to a nice matte stain and lasts all day!
