Many girls are not very comfortable wearing bold, red lipstick. Why not, the stigma attached to it is still very prevalent in a conservative society like mine. Wearing red lips connotes so many things; from coy, to wild to "easy A", to plain stupid labels like, excuse my word, puta. (sex worker)
But if you're like me who already learned not to give a piss on what people will say, then congratulations, I'm sure you also love that liberating, empowering feeling everytime you swipe your favorite red lippie!
MAC's Russian Red is a crowd favorite. There's also Revlon Fire and Ice and more from NARS but if you want an affordable alternative, try the Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Summer Sunset. It's creamy and has a hint of shimmer but no glitters - thank goodness!
I have full lips, so I normally put concealer and powder then line my lips a little thinner than normal, and voila! Keep in mind that red lips work best with 'bare' face, so your puckers can take centerstage and not end up like a party clown. Think of Snow White, you get the drift. :)
