Madonna. Marylin Monroe. Angelina Jolie. What do they all have in common? They all work that red lipstick. It’s a classic choice of fashionable celebrities and style icons and bold statement that accentuates your beauty: no wonder it’s one of celebrities’ top picks on the red carpet. 

It’s such a powerful choice for make-up that usually, you don’t even need to wear any other make up, like mascara and eyeshadow because it negates the need for any other color.

Too bold for you?

Lipstick come in nude colors, brown, even crazy colors like black and blue. All the same, red remains classic. It’s bold and bright, and accentuates your lips more powerfully than any other color. Yet, it brings a lot of attention to yourself and if you’re shy, it might seem like it’s a touch too strong to wear. Science is on my side when I say that you’re making a big mistake!

In a essay for the New York Post, it was found that women 78% of women feel more confident when they wear red lipstick. Women act more confident, and even their male colleagues find them to be much more competent at the jobs they were doing-even if it was the same quality of work!

Waitresses received better tips and they were rated as much more sexually attractive by men (according to a study from Université de Bretagne-Sud). So not only will you think yourself more confident, people around you will find you more alluring.

Furthermore, red evokes sexuality and men consistently find women who wear red to be more attractive. In an experiment where the same woman was wearing different coloured shirts (one red, one white), the majority of men found her more attractive when she was in red. Hey, biology doesn’t lie!

How should you go about getting those perfect red lips?

First, start with a good lipstick. In fact, we can send you one in your next box so that you don’t have to worry about it.

Make sure that it works with your skin tone and keep the lipstick container in your bag for touch ups whenever they’re needed.

Then, to get the perfect lips to apply red lipstick on, exfoliate with a toothbrush, wash your mouth, and then put a dab of eye cream on your lips. You’ll have a perfect, hydrated surface to make your lips look their best and the exfoliation will have brought cleared any dirt that would make your lipstick look off.

Finally, for super precision, use a lip brush and paint a thin line outlining the area you want to be filled in.  Color within the area and wipe off any mistakes with a tissue.

Viola! A perfect bold color for a brave and confident woman.
