Whether you’re looking to dress up an outfit or seeking to add a pop of colour to a slightly too pale face, red lipstick will always be my go to answer for when I just need a little va va voom.
Even better, it’s great for festive looks. It is the essential accompaniment to both a black turtleneck or a little white dress. Wear it at work or when out on a date. Apply away.
What’s more, it’s timeless. Gwen Stefani and Taylor Swift are rarely without their signature fiery lips. It’s confidence boosting. It’s a little hint of attitude. As Gwyneth Paltrow so famously stated, “Beauty to me is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
I’m with you, Gwyneth. Bring on the crimson.
