Up until recently I never dared even try out red lipstick. Too much, I always thought. I was afraid of trying something that in my world was so out there and I thought that everyone would stare at me if I wore it outside. But just before Christmas I suddenly couldn’t stop dreaming about wearing a red lip, so my friend Julie gave me one for Christmas [M.A.C Satin Red A80] – just the right red color – not too dark and not too bright!
I love, love, love it. If you’re wearing a simple black outfit, a red lip will add just enough glamour to make you stand out at any party or festive occasion. Avoid looking too ‘old-fashioned’ by wearing red lipstick with edgy outfits. The little black dress, a pair of pumps and a red lipstick is perfectly fine, but if you want the look to be modern and trendy, wear the red lips with a pair of black skinny jeans, a silk blouse and a leather jacket!
