My friend shared this quote recently, and I loved it so much, that I thought I’d share with you, too.
It is about red. Red, is truly the most beautiful and mesmerizing colour. My love for it is endless…
“The symbolism of red is made up of life, death, femininity, virility, violence, happiness, evil, saintliness, holiness, luxury, destitution, euphoria, and laughter. The murky red of brothels. The sumptuous red of theatres with their rich velvet curtains. The colour of the devil’s robes and the cardinal’s vestments. The red of idealists and madmen. The red of Fellini, Kurosawa, Picasso, and Caravaggio.
Not all of you like the red lipsticks but you still want something red for the holidays? You can always get yourself a nice and beautiful red gloss, something like Chanel Glossimer in Spark(#4).

- So how do you wear your red? Do you like sheer and sparkling red gloss?
- Or maybe hot and glossy red lipstick?
- Fan of vintage glamour? Then you go for classy matte red lips!
I believe that every girl can find a perfect red for herself but no matter what kind of red you’ve chosen there are some tips that will help everyone:
1.Exfoliate and Moisturize
Make sure that your lips are moisturized (you can use a lip scrub before moisturizing, something like Sara Happ) and not dry so that the lipstick glides on and doesn’t emphasize the dry parts. What girl doesn’t like a beautiful lip balm especially the one that smells like strawberry and comes in a beautiful vintage package? Like this one I’ve got for myself from Rose & Co for £4.99 from Boots.
2. The Lipstick
I guess we all know how to use a lip gloss, but what about the lipstick? There are so many ways to do it! You can use it straight from the tube, use it with a brush or apply it with your fingers over the lip balm for a more natural and sheer effect.
This is how I like to use a red lipstick. I usually go for a
