Every week I am going to give you a glimpse into something or someone that is rocking my regime. Last week I was loving First Aid Beauty and this week I am actually going to let you in on one of my top beauty secrets. (shhhhh, don't tell everyone!)
This secret is something I thought I would never be able to carry off, but with age comes experience and I have now worked out how to rock a bright red lipstick. In fact, I would go so far as to say it has become my trademark. Over the years I have experimented, often ending up looking like a clown, but the secret is to try lots of different reds as there are blue toned reds and yellow toned reds.
Now, what is the benefit of this and why do I like it so much?
I think the answer lies in the fact that it is the master of disguise. Let me explain.....
If you are feeling rough/tired/hungover/running late on the school run then all you need to do to make yourself look human is to slick on a slash of red lipstick. It is quite simply a distraction, it makes your teeth look whiter (check out my pearls above!) and detracts from the dark circles/bed hair as people automatically focus on your lips (how can they NOT it's that bright?!) and say "wow, you look amazing" or "you look really well". This is my tried and tested method, and it also gives you so much confidence. I can't explain why, I think it's because it makes you look polished.
My absolute favourite red is by Chanel (a la Madame Coco herself) but I have recently fallen in love with a No7 Lip gloss (lust) that is channelling Jerry Hall circa 1978.
Do you wear red lipstick? If so, what is your favourite shade?
Peace and Love
