Friday, June 28, 2013


Hey Everyone!!

It's no secret that I love red lipstick! I've done a handful of posts featuring red lipsticks and glosses over the years that proves that point. lol!  Anyway, I'm sharing my all time favorite red lipsticks with you. I'm more of a red lipstick wearer than a red gloss wearer because I like the  opaqueness of lipstick. Plus at the end of this post, I will list some of my favorite red lipstick video and tips: how to pick a red, apply it and rock it!



 My favorite red lipsticks are a mix of drugstore and high end......

~Tips~

-I don't pick a red lipstick based on a skin under tone, like blue based reds or orange based reds. I just eyeball it and know what I like. If you are looking to pick a red lipstick based on skin undertones( cool, warm, or neutral undertones), This VIDEO is chocked full of info on that.

-Matte red lipsticks are my favorite texture but known for being dry. Apply lip balm first then lightly blot it off so that your lips are moisturized but not disturbing the actually texture of the lipstick.

-If a red lipstick is too glossy, I lightly blot with a tissue then apply a dab of translucent powder on top to bring down the shine.

-If you are afraid of wearing red lipstick, start slow with a red gloss or apply a red lipstick lightly, so that you have more of a stain of color, than full on color, and work up from there. EVERY WOMAN can wear red lipstick, you just have to use patience to find your shade!!!
