My favorite time of the year has started! First, the changing colors of the leaves from hues of yellows, orange, auburn and the like. We feel the crispness in the air – It gets nippy and everyone seems to have a special smile on their lips.
Then the Holiday season starts. Everyone seems to be nicer during this time of the year. Being in the beauty business, I cannot help but zero in on a product that fits perfectly with the Holiday season – Red Lips!
Red lips are not only a classic look, but they also a very sexy look. It gives you a pop of color that can enhance your over-all look. However, it takes a little bit of know-how to get just about the right “Red Lips” look!
- Line the inside of your lips. To avoid the color from bleeding, use Motives Lip Crayon ( Retro Red, Passion, Cinnabar and Bordeaux are great red lip crayon colors)
- Pick the right color. If your tone is pink, pick Plum shades. If you have a yellow tone, go for Warmer Reds
- Go light on the eye shadow and blush when you wear a bold red color.
- Blend1 Blend! Blend! Sometimes to create the perfect red color, you may need to mix two or three red colors. So, if you have a red lipstick in your drawer that you seldom use for whatever reason – too bold, too dark, try mixing it with another color or two until you get the desired color and look.
Motives by Loren Ridinger has a generous line of Red Lipsticks and Lip Shines you can choose to wear this coming Holiday Season. To name a few, here are some luscious choices – Venetian Red, Ruby, Plum Drama, Berry Sexy, Raspberry Burst, Fire Red, Burnt Sienna and Go Red. And oh, we also have this fantastic lip palette aptly named “Red My Lips” – four shades of Red that you can customize your lip color according to how you feel and want to look.
A very happy Red Lips Holiday Season to all!
