I have always liked the way red lip compliments my skin. I have owned for a while two red lipsticks that I absolutely adore, but I have never had the courage to wear them. Last friday, I decided to give them a go and wear them for a girls day out. This is what happened.
I decided to wear the Nars Cruela Lip Pencil with some jeans and a white t-shirt. I kept the rest of my makeup simple. Before leaving my house I was going back and forth, deciding whether I should keep the bold lip or wear one of my nude lipsticks. After half an hour, I finally decided to go for the red lip. When I saw my friends, they complimented me on my lips, and I have to say that this is were I started to feel more confident.
I guess I was expecting people to look at me, which they did, but not in a disapproving way. At the end of the day, I learned that people don’t really care about what you are wearing. After this is experience, red lipstick is slowly making it’s way to my everyday makeup drawer. My currently two favorites red lipsticks are the Nars Lip Pencil in Cruela and the Rimmel London Lasting Finish in 111 Kiss of life. Here are the swatches:
