You’re Either A Red Lipstick Girl or Not…
You’re either a red lipstick girl…or not. There’s no in between. That’s something I read the other day, and I have to say I agree. Many friends have said they want to wear red, try it, but feel it’s too much. On the other hand, I know others who embrace it wholeheartedly. I think I fall into this category. For me, if I had an opportunity, I would wear red every day.
There’s no shyness or hiding when you wear a red lipstick, even if it is a soft red. It’s never going to be a ‘natural’ colour, even if it is a soft red. The other day, I felt inspired to wear red and took Pomegranate* from Bite Beauty for a spin. This blue-based red has enough warmth in it that even warm-toned girls (like me) can pull it off.
Seeing how pigmented and creamy the colour was, I thought I’d wear it as stain for work. But the more I looked at the colour, I felt I needed to do it more justice. I knew then and there that I needed to wear this to its full potential.
If you try red and don’t feel it, then don’t force it. Lipsticks are fun, and you should never feel like it’s work. There are so many other colours to try if red is not for you.
Over to you, do you think you’re a red lipstick girl or not?
