I came across this beauty quote courtesy of actress Gwyneth Paltrow:
“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
And I couldn’t agree more! Red lips are stunning and are an attention-grabber, so l feel like a celeb with all eyes on me whenever I rock a kick-ass red lisptick. Minus the paparazzi, of course!
That being said, I cannot live without Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire and Ice, $7.99 (revlon.com). Not only does the dominant red color make my lips appear fuller, but it gives off that I’m-sexy-and-I-know-it vibe. You know, the one that turns heads and makes other girls jealy. A bigger fan of lipgloss? Try Mac Tinted Lipglass in Sonoran Rain, $14.50 (maccosmetics.com), which promises a glass-like finish and intense shine.
Pair the red-hot look with a neutral or light eyeshadow color and a soft blush color. Beauty tip: Red is a strong color, so you don’t want to experiment with a plethora of vibrant colors when working red lips. Simple is sexy, so keep the rest of your facial features natural-looking.
Which is your favorite red lipstick?
