RED

I remember as a little girl on family occasions, I would get a red marks on my cheeks from older family members who would leave their lipstick mark when kissing me. Growing up as a young teenager I avoided red shades and anything too bright due to the fear of looking like “ma tante Clémence” and concentrated more on lip gloss as they were “the cool thing to wear” at the time.

Looking back, I asked myself what was I thinking? I am not a fan of lip gloss at all especially the clear ones. In my opinion they make you look like you were eating spaghetti or any greasy food and did not clean your mouth after.

The truth is there is something empowering when a woman wears a nice lipstick. Doesn’t have to be red necessarily any shades of pinks or beige will do but many of us girls hesitate at times when it comes to wearing red lipstick. But I personally love red lipstick and anyone who knows me, knows it’s my signature.

The key to choosing the right shade of red is all in the tone of your skin. If you have a warm tone choose a red with a orange undertones, and if you have a cool tone to your skin, red shades with blue undertones are best. Now if you’re lucky enough to have neutral skin tone, you can go for whatever shades you love.

Some of my favorites shades I own:

Sephora Lipstain, Deborah Milano Mat Red, L'Oreal Infallible Refined Ruby #337,  Chanel Rouge Allure Passion #14, Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss, Dior Addict Red Desire #959, MAC Russian Red, and Bourjois So Rouge
