‘Red lips’…ugghh… For a while, I ran from red lipticks like the plague. It was synonym to hooch, standing out, target practice for unwanted, uncalled for attention and discomfort.
As life would teach me, only I determine how I see myself, and how others see me…well, not my concern.
Today, I wear red lipstick whenever I feel like it. It’s an expression of self love, the confidence and trust I have gained in myself over the years, and my children swear I’m the most beautiful woman in the world. And guess what? That’s all that matters!
To you I say, you should feel comfortable wearing it any time, any season, for any occasion.

❤️Valentines Day is a couple days away and this always makes me think of Red Lipstick!!!💋 ******************************************** I have clients that ask me what is the best shade for me?? Can I wear a red lipstick? Is it too bold? How do I apply? So today let’s talk about “Red Lipstick”💋 • * Always have the rest of your makeup (foundation, concealer, liner, mascara) on when trying on a Red Lipstick. If your skin is not evened out the red of the lips is going to bring out the red in your cheeks & eyes and just won’t look right. * When wearing a Red Lip Everything else should be Natural! Don’t be doing a smokey eye with a Red Lipstick. Choose one or the other. Dramatic eye or lip. When you have a Red Lipstick eyes should be soft neutral you can get away with a winged liner and lashes👍🏻 * When applying put some concealer on lips then a little bit of powder. Start with lipliner followed by your favorite lipstick. If it’s not a matte finish you can always blot to help from not moving. * If your still not ready to take the plunge start sheer or even a red tinted gloss!!! Just because it’s not bold doesn’t mean it’s not a Red! ***KNOW YOUR SKIN TONES!!!!*** * Cool Undertones: Blue based reds. Raspberry, wine or dark vampy red. * Warm Undertones: Orange based reds. Brick reds, muted orange, or even a coral red. (Even saying this I like to where both kind of reds! A blue red and an orange red. So always play you might be able to wear both!!!) But I always say when you do wear a red lip “Own It!” 📸 @3chicksthatclick • #makeup #makeupartist #makeupartist_lv #redlipstick #valentinesday #kisses💋 #njmua #njmakeupartist #nycmakeupartist #nycmua #beautystylist #makeuptutorials #makeupideas #makeuplife #makeuptime #makeuplooks #makeupinspo #beautytips #beautytherapist 💄 @katvondbeauty in Shade #Outlaw
