There is just something about a perfectly made up red lip. It’s the epitome of chic, and a symbol of elegance. When browsing through pictures of red lips, my favorite is always the cool toned, darker lip. When semi-matte, it brings that elegance from the 40’s and 50’s. The amazingly inspiring Mona Lisa Smile is one of many movies, that without failing makes me reach for the red lipstick. Another like it is Atonement – which also has a habit of driving me into an all-night search for long, emerald dresses online.
The matte, red lip is everywhere and it can be done both powerful and femme fatale like Emma Watson wears it, or more subtle, and “worn in” like Kiera Knightley sports it. With a red lip comes a natural gust of confidence, so maybe this is something to whip out for the weekend?
