Red lipstick has stood the test of time spanning back to ancient times. The meanings and reasons for wearing red on the lips varies as greatly as the people who choose to wear it. Red lips are powerful, attention grabbing, flirty, sexy, courageous, strong, beautiful!
Who do you think of when you imagine bold red lips? Take a walk with us through history and imagine Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth, French Actress Sarah Bernhart, as well as American icons Marilyn Monroe, Madonna and Gwen Stefani. Unforgettable women in part due to their iconic wearing of red lipstick.
Never tried red lipstick? Curious to try?
No one is expecting you to rock red lips every day of the week but surely you’d love to bask in the attention of the occasional glam lips. If you’re more of a shy gal, gain confidence by picking a special occasion or two to stand out in the crowd. Perhaps an evening out with dim lighting will let you dip your toes in the red hot lip pool.
The more you adorn your mouth with red, the more comfortable you will become and the more confidence you will exude. You can always fake it until you make it! Wear red to the office and walk in with head held high. Paint that red on my fearless friend!
If you haven’t worn red lipstick, you haven’t allowed yourself the freedom to truly live.
