Rockin Red Lips!

30 Apr

I have always been a little nervous to do RED lips.  I have tried a couple times but never liked it, and never felt like it looked good.  This last year I either became brave enough to wear red lips or found the right color.  I think that it is a little bit of both.  The key is finding the right tone and the right shade.  If you are ivory/beige skin color you are usually better to do brighter not super dark.  Also if you have thinner lips you don’t want to do dark.  It will make your lips look even thinner.  Depending on your PH level in your skin the color of your lips might change the pigmentation of your lipstick.  If you tend to change your lipstick more pink or orange you are higher or lower on the PH level.  You need to balance it out before you put the red on so it doesn’t change.  Make sure you do a lip liner that is more orange if you go pink.  And if you go more orange you should go more pink.  Then you can put the red on and it won’t change the color so much if at all.  I found my absolute favorite.  Watch my clip if you want to know the best way to apply red lipstick!!  LOVE it.  I learned how to apply red lipstick from Robert Jones here is Robert doing a red lip at a photo shoot at Paisley Studios Click Here   So here is a question When is your favorite time to wear a red lip?  Do you like to wear a red dress or outfit, or do you like to wear something black, gray, or white?  Is it ok to wear red when you have a red lip?  Let me hear what you think.  I know what I think 🙂
