Red Lip Colors are still new to Me ! - Swatches, LOTD

During my 'ban' days I had so much to do as I was not shopping and the major job I did was cleaning and organizing. I was clearing all my stuff and rearranging things in my organizer almost once a week ! This massive cleaning showed me prominently that I do not have many red lip colors, in fact I have very very few of them :( I am never so confident wearing bright colors, especially not red. So here is a post to show all the red lippies I have.



Don't think I have some more to show, I have just 3 red lip colors which are almost new as I don't wear them often ! Cherry Tart is one rosy red so I find it a bit more comfortable to wear when compared to the other two shades. Yes, Fire and Fatal Red are truly bright reds.

Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Color - Fatal Red
Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss - Fire
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter - Cherry Tart




Why do I hesitate to carry reds?
  • It is a bright color that is never left unnoticed. I should be happy about it but here in my city they look at me as if I have done something seriously wrong if I wear such a bright lip color !!
  • I feel bright colors doesn't suit my dusky skin tone and rather it makes me look even more dark.
  • I can at least carry the lipsticks when I wear them really light but the gloss is shockingly bright that I remember using it just once so far :(
In spite of all the above reasons I wish I can really get used to these colors on my lips some day !




So share your tips on how to carry reds and some shade suggestions that would help me to start up with :) Meanwhile enjoy the swatches and LOTDs :)






Likey?

  2. Keep your eye-makeup neutral and dont apply blush when u apply red lipstick.
    Use the right colour accessory that co-ordinates with your red lipstick like black and white..
    and yeah...never put a clashing nail colour!
    dark wine, burgundy shades, and brick red are the shades that complement dusky skin. :)

  3. Wow, hot! And very helpful, because I'm trying to add a red shade to my repertoire of pinks!! Both fire and fatal red look awesome on you. Don't worry about what people in this city, or any other think - you are gorgeous!

  5. Fatal Red looks great on your lips! Red lips were scary for me too initially but just ignore what other's think...What matters is how you like it! I will suggest lightly dabbing it on your lips for a stained color & keeping the rest of the makeup minimal..like you could skip the blush & go with a subtle highlighter...

  6. don't line your waterline with khol or kajal,just line your upper lashes and use tonnes of mascara....u may use a very light bronzer to contour(read: light bronzer, matte is good or something with very very very less shimmer or a glow)...try and keep your foundation satin or matte finish...hope this works.By the way fire is awesome on you
