The Perfect Reds

It’s not a secret that I love a classic red lip. Nothing pulls together an outfit more or boosts confidence quite as high as red lipstick. There’s just something so elegant, classy, and confident about it. For me, a lot of my wardrobe consists of black and gray.¬†An all black outfit just exudes a cool vibe and once you add the red lipstick or even red nails, it sends the outfit over the top.

So many times my friends have said, “I wish I could wear a red lip” or “that red lipstick looks so good on you, I just don’t think I could pull it off”. I’m here to tell you that you CAN wear a red lip and that trust me, it WILL boost your confidence. It’s like putting on armor. Swipe it on and bam! Instant confidence boost.

I’ve picked out 2 of my favorite red lipsticks and my favorite red nail polish. I could wear red lipstick all the time but the perfect time would have to be valentine’s day. So whether you’re celebrating with your man or with your girls, these lipsticks and this nail polish will have people turning heads.
