When is the best time to wear red lipstick? I say, WHENEVER you feel like it. It's a power color! Having a bad day? Need a confidence booster? New job interview?...Wear red lips.
One of the biggest complaints about a red lip is how it wears. Most people avoid it simply because it's too messy to deal with coming off, or it just doesn't wear as long as they would like. Well, I'm here to banish those worries and tell you my favorite red lip shades and a few of my favorite colors.
The trick with red lips is learning how to make it last! Definitely look for a lipstick or lipliner that has a matte finish. I like the MAC Cosmetics Matte lipsticks in the shades, Ruby Woo, Lady Danger, Russian Red, Chili and a limited edition retro matte shade named, Relentless Red. Mattes are more of a dry formula, so if you don't like that feeling, throw a gloss or balm over it. But, the more matte the color is, the longer it's going to last on your lips!
