“Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together” – Elizabeth Taylor
The effervescent style icon Marilyn Monroe was one of the first few to start the classic red lips trend. The scorching scarlet lips were one of the factors leading to her ‘sex symbol’ image.
That’s what red lips do, they transform the ‘girl next door’ into a desirable sultry siren.
The belletristic red lip trend has been around for a while, and is now back with a pinch of bright orange. This splendid shade, called Vermillion is what all celebrities, supermodels, and fashion gurus everywhere are now seen sporting.
The vermilion lip trend has been spotted on the ramp as well as on red carpets.
To all you lovely ladies loving this trend and wanting to try it, we recommend the shade “Lady Danger” by Mac, which is the perfect mix of blood red and tangerine.
For those chicas who prefer spending on drug store brands, check out the ‘Orange Plus’ lipstick by Chambor or the ‘Orange flip’ by Revlon. These shades are very similar, and perfect dupes to Mac’s ‘Lady Danger’.
Ladies, don’t be intimated by how bold/bright this color is. Just make sure your eyes are simply done. A gold or champagne eye shadow with a few coats of mascara, and some highlight for the face is all you need to complete this look.
As Gwyneth Paltrow said, “Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin, that or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
Style tip: This shade looks best in a matte texture. To ensure your lipstick stays on all day, use a lip liner of a similar shade to outline and fill in your lips before you apply your lipstick. If you are not too fond of lip liners, simply apply a layer of the lipstick, dab softly with a tissue, rub the color in with your pinky finger and simply re-apply the lipstick.
