Check out How to Conquer Your Fear of Red Lipstick
Recently several girlfriends asked me about wearable/”beginners” red. So I thought I’d write about it here, as some of you may be interested in this topic, too.
Althought I personally love matte full-on red, I perfectly understand that not everyone is ready for it. This is why sheer formulas may be a good option to begin with.
