Finding Your Shade of Red

Finding your shade of red. 

Other than my 90’s love of Revlon’s “Rum Raisin” I stayed away from bold lip color for many years and opted mainly for a nude lip.

A Bold Lip


I learned in my mid-30’s that a bright lip can be really flattering. What once seemed too bold actually really suits me. Deep, rich color brightens up my face and always photographs well. Over the years I have gotten more and more comfortable rocking fun, bold colors and appreciate how they instantly dress up an outfit and bring some glamour to a look.
There are 4 categories/shades that I love:
    1. Fire engine red
    2. Fuchsia
    3. Brick red
    4. Punchy Coral/Pink

Obviously your skin tone, mood and personal preferences will determine what colors work for you and what you like, but my advice is to just play around with them- don’t be afraid! There are colors that I would have sworn I wouldn’t like that I now reach for regularly. (I’m looking at you fire engine red!)
