RED LIPS…is it for everyone?

Spring time…red lips are in! Red lipstick is classy and elegant but …does it suit everyone? Young?  40…50… and beyond? Why not?

It looks good for young people especially for those who have nice shape of lips but what about us?

Well, it depends on your skin tone and the dress you’re wearing. And your mood! Remember red lips bleed…yay! not kind of bleeding per se…What I mean… it goes out of the border of your lips and it stained the teeth as well. Ha ha ha ha nice vampire smile! Red lips stands for power and sexuality…yeah you’re right…hmmm.

Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stephanie….Well, ladies.., my mom is 83 years old and still wearing red lipstick! She always looks great! (mine and in my dad’s eyes)he he he he…As far as I remember, the first time I used her red lipstick was when I went on a parade as elementary muse. I was young and kind of looking good with the red lips but as I grew up to be a teen, I didn’t like it anymore…I think it looks great with pinup girl but not on me.

I am not fun of red lipstick anyway, I think I look older with red lips, anyhow here are some tips that I gather from Google about RED lips:

Don’t give into idea that you have to own every color that is fashionable for a particular season. Some of them will work, but many are trendy and do not compliment women fifty and beyond. What nice on her might not look nice on you.

– Find the right shade and wear it properly. Don’t wear too heavy EYE makeup, if you want to draw attention on your lips…Otherwise you will look like a clown…worst…a prostitute!

But hey..if you feel good and looks good..don’t mind other’s YOU that is important!

– If you’re going outdoor, choose a lighter shade..For evening, go bolder, so your features stand out.

-don’t use red lip liner; instead, choose a liner that’s closest to your natural lip color.

-prevent “bleeding.” Apply a little concealer around the border of your mouth.

-Avoid getting lipstick on your teeth. After applying, put your finger in your mouth, purse your lips around it, then slowly pull it out to remove excess color.

– the name of the game..Experiment..try different shade of red..plum red..bluish red..

Remember ladies..RED is KISS (keep it super simple) I love you mom!
