As winter looms,the desire for red lippies is getting stronger. Bright red lippies are worn everywhere this season after a headstart last year when it was spotted in numerous significant fashion shows. Lady Danger from M.A.C was my staple lippy from last winter and this winter, I've acquired Ruby Woo, also from M.A.C. Both are gorgeous hues of red. Depending on your mood, both are as flattering. Lady Danger is a very bright orange-y matte red and Ruby Woo is a little blue-ish red, also matte.
Red lips are the perfect accessories for winter for me as I wear only charcoal, black and grey throughout winter(in fact I wear only neutrals almost every season).
Ok,that's not exactly how I look but just an example how a bright red lipstick would look on a short haired Asian girl. The red is not as intimidating to wear as it may seem.
If you have not tried wearing a red lipstick or just contemplating, don't hold back. You will love it once you've found the right shade of red. Just keep everything else simple with just some mascara and / or eyeliner and use a lip liner to avoid smudgey lines. My next move would be Yves Saint Laurent Lip Temptation #16, a glossy coral red.
