Redlipstick-fobiaWednesday, April 02, 2008
My sister, Margs, has always told me that red lips won't look good on her everytime I would suggest putting it on her when I do her makeup. One time, she had an even to go to and this time, I decided not to ask her anymore if I could do red lips on her.
When she saw how gorgeous it turned out to be, she now believes that EVERYONE can wear red lipstick!
When hunting for the perfect shade of red, trying it on and leaving it on for a few minutes will help you see which one looks great on you. Just be patient. It took me several tries of red shades too to find one that best suited Margs. So keep trying! Don't feel pressured in buying something thatthe counter advisers tell you.
Remember, it does not mean that whatever great red lipstick your friend has on, it would also suit you. There's a chance that it might, but don't go rushing to the counter and paying for it before trying it on.
It might take a while to find the perfect red lipstick with all the brands and shades out there. But don't despair, because once you've found that perfect shade, you'll be 100% happy! My last piece of advice when wearing your red lipstick, keep your whole face simple and put as little makeup as possible. Make a bold statement with just your red lips!
