Lipstick: Seeing Red…Pink or Nude

Valentine’s Day….Ah yes, a day of clichés for some and a day of total daydream worthy romance for others. With a day dedicated to our little friend cupid just around the corner, we need to talk about the perfect pout.

Will you choose a classic scarlet or modern merlot? When choosing the right shade of lipstick in the red family, choose wisely. Different shades for different people. This doesn’t mean you are limited to only one or two shades, it simply means test out different colors. You might be surprised which lipstick looks best on you.  Keep in mind, there are a few shades that any of us can wear. My favorites are Wine with Everything by Revlon, Russian Red by Mac and Jungle Red by NARS. With bold lips keep eye makeup simple and subtle.

Hot pink lips are fierce, fun and fresh! If you would like to brighten your look, try a hot pink lipstick or lip stain. Try Sugar Violet lip stain by Laura Mercier or Pot Rouge in Rasberry by Bobbi Brown.

Want to make your eyes pop? Go for a pale nude lip color. With subtle lips you need to really emphasize your eyes with liner & a little extra mascara.  My favorite nude lip colors are Angelique Beige by Dior, Honolulu Honey by NARS and Creme Brulé by Revlon.
