ALL IN THE DETAILS: Red Hot Valentine

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, there is nothing more feminine or classic than a simple red lip. From the runway to the red carpet, we see these looks daily on our favorite celebrities and models. However, we don’t always think about how easy it is to incorporate this look into our daily lives. An easy way to add a pop of color to a basic jeans and T-shirt combo or little black dress, a red lip is a fashion accessory in itself and the perfect look for February 14.

I spotted this Fashionista rocking her red lipstick with a red and black striped dress, sheer black tights and black ankle boots. Aside from the striking lip color, she keeps her makeup extremely minimal, allowing her lips to be the focal point of her look. A striped dress in any color is a great purchase as it can be dressed up, like with a pair of heels, or dressed down with tights and ankle boots. If you want your lips to be the key point of your outfit, ensure that you’re keeping a simple color palette of two or three colors, which will keep the look simply classic.

How To: There are so many different shades of red lipstick so it’s important to figure out what shade and finish best suits you. Try asking a makeup artist at your favorite beauty store for suggestions based on your skin tone or the benefit you’re looking for, such as moisturizing or long lasting. Paired with a matching red dress, you’ll look red hot for Valentine’s Day!
