The striking beauty of a red lip instantly makes you think of sophistication and glamour. Its ability to revive your complexion and make your eyes stand out is appreciated by many. French and Italian women pull off a day time red lip because of casual confidence but I promise you, anyone can do the same. Once you apply it and find how happy and powerful it makes you feel, you won’t want to take it off. I started wearing red lipstick somewhat religiously in 2011. No matter how I felt on the inside, applying red lipstick made me feel empowered and reminded me of old Hollywood. Being an enormous fan of vintage style and classic movies, I am always on the lookout for a way to channel my favorite beauty icons. To those who me, red lips have become my staple. No matter my mood or how much of a bad hair day I think I am having, finding the perfect shade of red lip lipstick or stain instantly improves my outlook. It’s a form of self care I allow myself in times of stress, reminding me to pull myself up by my boot straps and keep going.
A natural looking daytime red lip can be achieved with a precise lip pencil and creamy lip color. These green beauty options are my favorite.
