There really is nothing better than a good red lip. Whether you're feeling playful, vampish, sultry or sweet, you can always find a berry tint to fit your mood. And for the past few months I've been rotating between four red colors that seem to work perfectly with my state of mind and my wardrobe!

I'm almost embarrassed to write this, but it took me a REALLY long time to get with the red lipstick trend. I always associated red lipstick with clowns and "working girls." Then, after talking myself into finally looking for a shade, it was complete TRIAL AND ERROR to find one that worked and made me feel comfortable to wear in public.

Now, I'm a firm believe that any woman can wear a red lip...no matter her skin tone. It just takes a bit of experimentation to find the right one. And once you do, you'd be AMAZED at what a bold pout can do for your self esteem! 

Do you have a favorite or go-to red lip stick, pencil or gloss? Leave a message for me below!
