Wanting to Know you Wens : red lips!

one of my resolutions for this new year is to wear red lipstick like i used to. i believe you don't need much make-up as long as you have red lips and it works with anyone (honest!).


(ladies, Revlon's PhotoReady foundation is magical! seriously, my skin has never looked better though i promise i'm not this cullen-like; too much flash)

last week i asked everyone to show off your red pouts. thank-you to everyone who played along! it always means so much to me.


check out these red-lipped beauties:

^Jess who doesn't believe any date is complete without red lipstick

^Claudia who says she hardly wears make-up but decided to go to Target and get some to surprise her husband. I bet he loves it! *wink

 ^Marianne {my twinkie} who lives for carmex and smokey eyes donned red for me and gave me a kiss!

 ^Jess who is documenting the whole red attempt on her blog (i love it!) Tip for the smoochers: jess swears by l'oreal infallible color crimson. She says it has amazing staying power, doesn't bleed, and "I can kiss *him* as much as I want without sharing the lipstick." 

 ^Shell's red lips define her arches beautifully

 ^Erin all lipsticked up in "goldplum pearl." She has the talent to apply lipstick without ever needing a mirror. amazing! also amazing is she's in her work office and behind her is a Twilight photo of Edward Cullen. Work inspiration? indeed.

 ^Courtney who says she loves pulling a "Karen O from time to time."

 ^Kary's smile is even more beautiful with red lips.

 ^Phoenix who looks both french & like bettie page in her fabulous bangs and lips. 

^Sandra in the first lipstick she ever bought : MAC Russian Red. her words: "I felt... beautiful. :) I guess red lipstick does that, huh? ;)" 



"Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick."

-Gwyneth Paltrow

Russian Red is my favorite red lipstick!

I'm going to need to try that L'Oreal kind cause sometimes the MAC kind fades in weird places when I wear it.

Look at all of those gorgeous red lips! I'm always afraid to try it myself, but I'm starting to be more brave and wear red gloss. Small steps, right? :)

I have always been one for only wearing a chapstick of some sort. Lately though I have been trying out lip colors but this post has really inspired me to try out red lips!

Meghan said...

Everyone is so adorable! I wish I could pull off the red lips!

Everybodys red lips are beautiful!

Aww! Everyone looks so beautiful in the red lips! : ) I've never really felt comfortable in lipstick. Lip balm is as far as I go. I used to love doing my eyes up, tho.
