The Sass of Red Lips
There is something undeniably iconic about "red lipstick." Depending on the shade, it can embody anything from Hollywood Glamour Girl to Edgy Rocker Chick. What other color has that type of versatility? Something about red lipstick just oozes sass! It says, "Hello, I look fierce...yes, I know." Just looking like a straight boss lady out in these streets like it ain't no thang.
Now, all red lipsticks are NOT created equal! Make sure you choose a lipstick that matches well with your skin tone. If you have read any of my previous beauty posts, you know I am big on making sure you wear makeup that goes well with your skin tone. Colors look different on everyone. Today, I want to share my favorite red lipstick for all skin tones:
Cruella Velvet Matte Pencil by NARS
Side Note: You guys, I generally only like to post original photos taken by Zack or myself. However, I have 2 Cruella by NARS Velvet Matte Pencils (one for home and one in my purse) and they look like little stubs. I suppose that is a testament to how much I use them, but it does not make for a pretty picture... even if I do freshly sharpen it. Please forgive mehhhh and grant me this pass.
This classic red lippy compliments every skin tone and gives you that air of classic elegance that I am so fond of. This Velvet Matte Pencil is appropriately named as it goes on like buttaaa for sure. I can't say that it is super long-wearing so be sure to reapply after eating or aggressively drinking beverages. If you aren't using a straw, let's call that aggressively drinking. I am so blessed, my sweet Zack bought me straws so I can use them at home and not mess up my makeup. He thought of that on his own! What a prince that man is! Ladies, if your man isn't thinking of ways to make your makeup last longer, what is he doing??? DROP HIM. I'm kidding. I'm not...
Sass up your look, cover those lips in red.
