R E D

I love r e d lipstick. My first ever lipstick color was r e d and I have more lipsticks in shades of r e d than any other colour. So me being the person that believes red lipstick can somehow change the world, my heart breaks a little every time someone says red lipstick wouldn’t suit them before they even tried it. There are so many notable icons who are known for having red lipstick as their signature colour, so I’ve picked out four celebrities who can be a source of inspiration for those that are a bit shy to try. Ask yourself, which celebrity would be your ultimate alter ego?

TAYLOR SWIFT – MAC RUBY WOO

Taylor had a phase where she’d always have red lipstick on. Heck, she even named her album Red. And I think we both know why 😉 😀

She’s known to be a big fan of Mac Ruby Woo, which also happens to be one of my favourite. I didn’t stumble upon Mac until last year and this was one of the lipsticks I first purchased. It has such a beautiful red accent to it and I’d definitely recommend it! T.S would too!

BLAIR WALDORF – NOUBA #46

Last year, I started re-watching Gossip Girl from Season 1 and I have to say Blair was obviously one of my favourite characters. So much sass and confidence, there was so much to admire. She was known for her Alice bands, being blatantly honest and her words of wisdom. One of her notable lipstick colours was a dark red, a lot like the Nouba No. 46, I’d say the only difference was that it wasn’t matte. Matte wasn’t really a thing back in the Blair Waldorf days but this would definitely be Blair Waldorf approved.

 GWEN STEFANI – SLEEK MATTE ME IN RIOJA RED

If you’re a big fan of the voice, one thing you’d notice is about Gwen is her very very bright red lips among other things. So if there’s anyone to pick as an inspo for this, it would definitely be her.

MARILYN MONROE – SLEEK IN RUSSIAN ROULETTE

Let’s face it, if this was the 50s, you’d probably be having a huge Marilyn Monroe Poster on your wall. If you’ve never heard of  her then you’ve probably heard one of her many famous quotes. When viewing pictures of Marilyn, I’d always notice her beach blonde hair, the black spot on her face and her glossy red lips. Although, this lipstick is nothing close to glossy, this would definitely be her shade.

I hope this post has inspired you to try red lipstick for the first time or even try a different shade of red.
