I have always worn red lipstick. Not every day mind you, but since late high school and early college, I've been known to slap some red right on the kisser. And it seems like every fall, red lips seem to come back around, which makes me super excited.
A lot of girls I know are intimidated by red lips and don't think they can pull them off. Like with anything you're not used to, I say, "act like you know what you're doing, and everyone will think you do."
The keys to perfect red lips are 1) getting the color right for your skin tone, and 2) application. It may seem silly - we all know how to put on lipstick - but with red, you have to take a little more care. I love a makeup tutorial video, so here are a couple great ones:
Choosing your red (Michelle Phan videos are great):
Flawless application (this one is long, but helpful):
Here are some ladies in red that I LOVE!
Anne's fair skin looks perfect with red lips. It's my favorite look for her.
Ok, so now that it's officially fall, who's going to wear red lips this weekend? I am!
