Red Lips

Red lipstick. Who loves it? Who’s scared of it? And who wants to wear it but doesn’t know what shade to wear?

Red is such a power color for sure but red lipstick seems to take it to another level. Last night at a networking event I was told I should have worn a red lipstick to match my red nails by a man I had never met. However, when asking female colleagues at my 9-5, I was told to wear the more subtle Lolita shade from Kat Von D (mauve/pink).

I always love a good red lip but I’m always afraid of coming off too strong. I mean, I have dark hair & dark eyes along with a strong personality. How much more drama do I really need to put into my look? 

What do you think? Are red lips too bold? Or only meant for certain women?
