Turn it UP With Fire Engine RED Lips!

Marilyn Monroe was known for being the ultimate American Sex Symbol. She was a hollywood star admired by many and was the epitome of femininity. She was a blonde with curves, a killer walk and a pair of red lips to go with it all.
Although red lips have been around for many years Marilyn's pout was one to inspire other women to be daring enough to rock the look. . .

Today there are many women who love showing off classic red lips and when I go out red lipstick is my go to make-up aid just because it makes a makeup application that much easier and faster!

Here are some beautiful photos I found of some of my favorite celebrities ever looking Stunning!

The best way to wear red lips is to start with a clean canvas, a clean moisturized face, applying a good concealer and foundation to even out the skin. Maybe a little contouring with some matte bronzer on the hollows of your cheeks. Minimal color on the eyes is what is recommended since lips are the main attraction of the look. Eyes should be left clean and simple with maybe just a winged eye liner and some black mascara to make you look classy and polished. A good example of what I am describing is the makeup application Christina Aguilera has in the picture below...


Here I am with red lips...
On all of these pictures I am wearing the same shade of lipstick which is Rimmel London's Moisture Renew Lipstick in 'Red Alert'. It has been my absolute favorite lipstick since like forever! The color is rich and very pigmented. The consistency is rich and glides on smooth on the lips. It doesn't leave a greasy feeling behind and it doesn't dry out my lips at all and the best part is------It last all day long! It retails for about $ 7 dollars at pharmacies like Duane Reade, Rite Aid, Walgreens, CVS in the Rimmel London Section of the makeup aisle. This shade really goes well for women of all shades of skin color. I totally recommend this color and brand for every daring siren out there!

This is what the lipstick looks like...

Sassy Celebrity Quotes...

      Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.
 Gwyneth Paltrow

It's all or nothing with my makeup. If I get dressed up, I'll go to an extreme. I'll wear foundation, bright blue or bright red lipstick with one of my weird purple wigs.
