Trending: Red Lips

I have had a long time love affair with red lipstick. Ever since the first time I bought a Wet ‘n Wild Red Hot at the age of 14 and sashayed my way to school as though I was Marilyn Monroe herself. When it came to planning makeup for my wedding day, I only knew one thing- red lips are a must. There is a nasty rumor going around that has convinced many that they cannot partake in this trend. Nish-nish. Here are a few tips for rocking reds:

-Go easy on the eyes. Proper makeup is about proportion. When wearing reds I often do a soft smokey eye or just mascara & liner.

-Know your skin tone. If your complexion is pink, go for plumy reds. Yellow/orange skin tones look best with warmer tones. The darker your hair color, the deeper the red you can pull off.

-Build on a base. I always use Benefit’s Benetint lip stain and a hearty amount of lip liner as a base before applying my lipstick. This allows for less movement onto teeth and helps lips to last longer. If dry lips are an issue, I use basic Blistex on top with a lip brush.

-Play. If you buy a shade and it is a bust, try using a darker or lighter liner with it, or blend another lipstick to add depth. The best way to know what works is to rule out what doesn’t.

What it is formulated to do:
Delivers color and intense shine while hydrating, moisturizing and protecting the lips with shea butter, aloe vera and vitamin E.

I personally bought "Brick House" and I love it. It has a similar extra-sticky (I'm not going anywhere) consistency to MAC's lipglass if you are a fan of that.
