Nothing excites me more than a tube of red lipstick! I remember never wearing it growing up because I was convinced my skin was too dark for it. One day my sister-in-law talked up red lipstick and convinced me to try it. I have been hooked ever since. While red lips can be worn year round, I find it to be a bit too harsh during those hot summer months. However, it’s winter and nothing adds life to an outfit, hair style, or a pair of shoes, like the right shade of red lipstick. Okay, I might be exaggerating about the shoes, but red definitely  brings life to anything understated. I guess that’s why I don’t like it in the summer when I tend to wear bold and colorful prints, but in the winter I tend to wear a lot of dark colors, and that pop of red adds just the right amount of balance to my relaxed and sophisticated style. Red lipstick takes courage to wear and any woman who embraces it is immediately deciding to embrace a new side of herself that is outgoing, powerful, and sexy. If you are deciding to take the plunge and add a little spice to your lip collection, check out some amazing shades of red below that will bring out your inner covergirl!
