The Perfect Red Lip Shades for VALENTINE’S DAY !
Valentine’s day is coming up!
Celebrate your day preferably with a minimal eye look- but grab attention with your bold colorful lips!
For Valentine ’s Day, you can stick to reds or pink as a lip shade- depends on what you like more. Keep your look flirty and sultry- and most importantly- SIMPLE.
VALENTINE LIPS can be RED or PINK…
A beautiful eye look to go with either RED shades or PINK shades is : sweeping a soft brown/dark beige eyeshadow (I love wedge from MAC) and add a thin to thick black gel liner (love bobbi brown’s)- apply mascara… but then add some false lashes to make the eyes dramatic.
WHY RED LIPS?
Girls wear red lips because red is a festive color- yet it’s sexy & attracts attention. By wearing red lips, you are making a statement & drawing attention to the most important feature on VALENTINES = UR LIPS!
In this post- I will focus on my favorite RED lipstick shades to wear on V-DAY!
MY FAV RED SHADES FOR V-DAY
Some reds might have a hint of maroon to them… they are amazing though
RUBY WOO- MAC
A beautiful Matte red shade- very long wearing. Slightly lighter shade than MAC’s ‘Russian Red’. Your lips will look like rose petals- so velvety. This is the True matte shade. Has blue undertones- will make your teeth appear whiter. Wear it with “cherry” lip pencil from MAC.
DARE YOU – MAC
It’s a Cremesheen lipstick (Creamy formula-very light & slick- deliver full color coverage- gives lips a shine!)
This color is a deep brown red- hint of maroon. What I love about it is that it is dark, but NOT too dark. I love how this color can also look like burgundy too! This will moisturize your lips because of its cremesheen formula.
LA FASCINANTE #38- ROUGE ALLURE VELVET- CHANEL
First of all, this is from the Rouge Allure Velvet Line, meaning that the texture it will deliver is a rich matte color. This differs than other MATTES as it moisturizes your lips. This shade is a beautiful classic red. This color screams “take me out for Valentine’s day”….The undertones of this lipstick are also blue. On darker skin tones- this shade will look like red mixed with dark pink.
DRAGON ROUGE ALLURE LAQUE #75 – CHANEL
This color has been famous for years! It is a stunning shade- so vibrant- so smooth-and leaves a stain behind (which makes it long lasting). Sad news is that I am hearing the product is discontinued or on the verge of being discontinued L but I had to share it anyways.
This is not a lipstick- but it comes in a lipgloss form but with a full intense color. The result is very glossy what what’s amazing is the rich vibrant color. It delivers a beautiful true red- more of a ‘blood red’ shade.
I recently got this lipstick- from illamasqua. It’s a deep scarlet red matte lipstick. It’s quite similar to MAC’s Ruby Woo, but slightly darker & not as dry as Ruby Woo. It is a bright red shade that is highly pigmented- with hint of blue undertones. Keep in mind that this lipstick does NOT have long staying power. However, it delivers a beautiful 1920’s Retro Glamour.
KRYOLAN LIP WHEEL – LIP ROUGE #14
I love this color wheel filled with 5 different shades of red + 1 lipgloss in the center. The formulas of those shades are creamy & have silicone- to give a lustrous effect + add some vitamins to your lips. There are dark and light shades so it makes life easier when you want to choose! Instead of buying one lipstick- you get 5!!
