DARE TO WEAR: RED LIPSTICK WITH RED DRESS

I am such a huge fan of red! It just seems to connote “power”, “boldness”, and “vibrancy” about my personality.  I find that wearing red always gives me that extra boost of confidence to conquer the world. There is just something about rocking a daring color that speaks volumes, especially when wearing a killer red dress with red lips. I know, some say wearing red lipstick with a red dress is a beauty no-no. I have even heard people describe the red on red look as “too matchy matchy”, “overtly sexual”, “femme fatale”….

But what if I told you that you could totally pull this look off in an oh-so-wearable way? Just follow these 3 simple tips and in no time, you’d be ready to paint the town red in a super confident way :)

Tip #1:  Pick a lipstick that matches your dress exactly or a shade darker, to avoid it clashing with your dress.

Tip #2:  Stick with a neutral eye shadow color or wear none at all. For me, I rock only eyeliner on the eyes

Tip #3: Go with light foundation or none at all. Too much foundation can be very distracting, making your face look so overdone. With the red on red look, your foundation needs to look simple and fresh..the-pink-joy-red lipstick with -red-dress-89

There you go! Easy right? So the next time you want to rock red on red, don’t be scared. Take the challenge, dare to wear red lipstick with red dress. You can do it!
