At risk of wrath similar to Miranda Priestly’s much GIFed – “Florals? For spring? Ground breaking!” I am talking about red lipstick… AND ON VALENTINE’S DAY!
If I want to feel fancy – I wear a red lip. Qualifiers? An important meeting, a milestone celebration, a wedding or date night with Troy. Fanciness aside, if I am feeling low in the company of absolutely no body I’ll also slick on red lipstick, direct from the bullet. It’s a sure fire way to boost my confidence and shoot a super casual outfit up a wrung on the dress-code ladder.
With that in mind, if you’re currently curled up on the lounge on this Valentine’s night watching the notebook while ‘spooning’ a family-size bowl of popcorn, give it a go! What do you have to lose? And If you’re about to head out on a date with someone special, I’m also all for a statement lip. Life’s too short, and all that.
Some good ones:
