Lipstick and Polka Dots

“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.” – Gwyneth Paltrow

Today’s outfit is brought to you by the color RED. It’s a bold, daring, and confident color which never goes out of style. I call a timeless red lip stain an “instant beauty-lift”. I believe every woman should own at least one kick-ass red lipstick in her makeup arsenal. Most of my daily outfits are not complete without a fierce red on my lips.

Wearing a lipstick print shirt by Bebe (old), polka dot shorts by American Rag (similar here), smoking lips clutch (Ebay), red heels by Steve Madden (Ebay).

Looking for a perfect red? Here are three choices you should pucker up to:
Mac’s Russian Red(pictured) – Probably the most popular “true red” around and my personal favorite. Russian Red is very flattering without being overly glossy.
Smashbox Be Legendary – A gorgeous shade of red. Moisturizing and truly long lasting. I used this one for years without any complaints.
Revlon Love That Red– A cheaper alternative that delivers. It’s a great shade which flatters any skin tone and the moisture-rich formula feels great on.
