Sometimes a little rouge is all you need.
A combination of jet lag and getting organised after what seems like years away. Somehow I feel we have only just finished our holiday cheer and yet here we are in the first week of February. If this is the beginning, 2016 is going to be a quick paced year.
Ready, steady and let’s go.
In the sluggish mode, I find my enthusiasm for creative dressing somewhat lacking.
As we have discussed before, my go-to solution is a red lipstick. Whether bright or dark, depending on the season and mood, a good red saves the day. A dash of colour brightens even the most tired eyes and makes me feel well dressed even if I am staring at the same combination of clothes day after day.
And the red lip is the “no-brainer” way to jazz up the all black.
I often think you are a red lip person or you aren’t. I am not sure we can convert those who aren’t convinced, but I wish I could. I believe a red lipstick is the best pick me up there is and I suggest if you doubt the power of the “red”, take small steps. Start with a darker gloss than normal and work towards the matte shades.
I have been practicing over the years and am surprised how brave I have become when it comes to shades of red.
I recently found a new “red” to love. Yes, another one. Can lipstick love be considered an addiction? If it is, then I have it.
It is called Desirous and I think it is a fabulous shade. The texture and application are superb; matte but not too matte and easy to apply with no slipping or bleeding edges. Something to watch at this stage and age.
Is there such a thing as too many reds?
If you have a peek in my cabinet, you would have to say, no. :) xv
