The Perfect Red Lip

red lip

Every once in a while…and I mean every once in a while, I will rock a red lipstick.  If you read Friday’s post, you will remember that red is not one of the colors that I go to very often in sewing, and it seems that trend has filtered over into other areas of my fashion life.  I do love red and I love that feeling of complete sophistication when I swipe on that creamy stick of rouge…perhaps I should wear it more often!

 Do you wear red lipstick often?  Do you wonder if you should?  Complete the questionnaire below to find out:

Well, I guess that clears everything up! 🙂

Enjoy!

    I love red lipstick once in a while too. One of the best things I learned in beauty school was that when you wear red lipstick (or any dark color lipstick) you keep the eye makeup minimal and then just the reverse is true – if you were pale lipstick then you can fully make up your eyes (liner, shadow, mascara). I love makeup. I never tire of putting it on every morning! : )

    Thanks again for your posts!
