Oscar Fashion Part II – Red
Red dresses were also on trend this season. One of the easiest ways to add red into your look is with a bold red lip.
Trust your makeup B.F.F. here and test several shades. Stick with minimal makeup and neutral eyeshadow to make this look work from day to night.
I’m currently obsessed with Yves Saint Laurent’s new line of lip stains, Rouge Pur Couture – Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain. No. 9 is my color of choice these days.
This juicy gloss-stain is not your normal lip stain. It features an amazing arrowhead shaped applicator that allows you to draw on a line and fill it in with ease. With one application, you get a gorgeous red stain. Add a few more layers and you’ve got this beautiful bright red with the perfect amount of glossy shine. And it lasts. Just don’t rub your lips together; it smashes the color and ruins the shine.
Feeling adventurous? Try a jean in red. Summer shades are lighter and easily transition from day to night. Cookie Johnson has the perfect skinny pair that looks great with fun flats or heels for night.
Feeling Adventurous? Match your red jeans and red lipstick. Be sure to keep the rest of your look somewhat neutral. Refinery29 has the perfect “Red Lipstick Hall Of Fame”.
