I’ve wanted to be part of #teamredlipstick for some time now, and I finally think I made it!
After much exploration (my first attempt ended up in a coral color),
I finally settled on these colors;
1. MAC Cosmetics- Ruby Woo
2. MAC Cosmetics- Russian Red
3. Wet & Wild- Stoplight Red
They’re all basically the same color. Hahaha. Ruby Woo is more matte than the others, Russian Red is a tad bit ‘orangey’- and Wet & Wild is a cheap, creamier, dupe for Ruby Woo.
I’m still not 100% sure how to ‘wear’ lipstick (liners, blotting and all that), and pretty much only know how to wear it with black (nighttime) or very basic daytime tee and jeans sorta thing.
So far, I like the red lip best with pitch black Crochet braids (or twist out- I think it looks pinup-ish). I also pair it with SUPER muted makeup- neutral golds, minimal eye makeup. Here’s some pics from my faux photoshoot:
I love it!
Have you tried the red lipstick trend? What’s your favorite look?
