BEAUTY BAR: Seeing Red

Finding the perfect shade for your pout may not be as simple as it seems as matching colors to your skin tone and your personality to let your inner Fashionista shine can be a task in itself. Add the different seasons and weather into the mix and well, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll be spending the next two hours in the makeup aisle at Target hopelessly applying and wiping off lipstick until that “Aha!” moment arises.
Since it may be obvious that I’ve already hopelessly sat in Target for multiple hours at a time until my “Aha!” moment came, let me save you the trouble and let you in on a tip I’ve found. No one can go wrong with wearing red. That’s right, red is the universal color for all Fashionista’s who want to simply look fabulous.
Wearing red lipstick is classic ,which transitions with seasons and moods. It can take your casual outfit to the next level or take your date night dress to instant bombshell in a matter of five seconds. The Fashionista pictured above has everyone seeing red with her bright red lips, dress and yes, even her nails. She kept the rest of her makeup minimal, with a light smokey eye and blush as this allowed her lips to steal the show and really be accentuated. Her paisley patterned dress complemented the Fashionista’s dainty frame and brought a little country charm to her look. She completed her look with nude wedges and silver jewelry.
What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? Focus the attention on your lips by keeping the rest of your makeup simple. Try lighter shadows, or a light smoky eye like the Fashionista paired with a light blush or bronzer. Last, finish your look with a bright and bold red lipstick and you’ll be ready to take the day or night by storm.
