Red Lipstick? Need Your Help.


Okay so I have something to ask you, my dear readers. I'm a lipgloss kind of girl, and I don't use lipsticks, but I do have them as that's what I use for other people. A few weekends ago, I learned that the party I was going to had a 20's theme, so yes I really dreaded the fact that I would be using red lipstick! So here's the look I put together for that party:



I'm sorry I couldn't find I better pic. This was taken with flash, so it looks a little scary. So here's me wearing NYX Electra. So what do you think? Did I pull it off? Should I try another shade of red? Should I forego red for good? I'd really appreciate your input.

I'm having the same dilemma as well! I love red lips and I won't let go of it. Wear whatever makes you comfortable. I think wearing red is nice on special occasions. But if it's not your thing, then of course you can skip it! :)

I think you should try wearing other red lipstick that has different pigments. The one on the photo looked a little too orangey for your colourings. Perhaps a red shade that has more deep blue tint on it might look better on you?

serena, you really think so?

nina, yah i'll only wear it during special occasions. because i don't want to wear red everyday.

music, you think a blue tone will look better on me? okay i'll try it and post a picture to see what you're opinions are.

Gosh... so pretty. Lalo na you paired the red lips with a black number. Nyx's Elektra suits you pala eh.

Other than the whitecast your face makeup gave you, everything looks great!

Crystal said...

herroyalbleakness, really? you think it looks good on me? thanks gurl.

I think you look great Crystal. Although if you really aren't comfortable with red you can use it for special occasions only.

Hmm...it helped that it did gave you a woman- ish look because that's the effect of darker reds.

You might want to try brighter reds since you have fair skin and it will look good on you more. :)
