LOOKBOOK : Styling Red Lipstick

Some people might be afraid of wearing red lips. But, you know what? It is actually perfect for every occasion! We just have to wear the right outfit to rock red lips. That is why now, I am bringing you a new daily lookbook on what to wear with red lipsticks to boost your confidence because the main thing you need to wear red lips successfully is confidence. Enjoy!

Monochromatic outfits with red lips, very classy, indeed. This is the safest way to wear red lips. You can wear all black or all white, it will do the job. If you want to wear all black or all white, do wear different textures to make it more interesting, not bland. For example, if you wear a black satin top, wear a black pleated skirt and a patterned bag. One more thing, to make your outfit even more classy, gold and silver accessories work.

2. Red and Green

Based on the wheel of color, green is the opposite of red. That is why it is perfect for color blocking with red. Wearing green and red can be too “Christmasy”, and we do not want wearing Christmas outfits on regular basis. So, to prevent the extra Christmas spirit (I’m not saying Christmas spirit is bad, lol, I love it), wear something darker than the green you are wearing, like black, or you can wear army greens. This way will not only reduce the Christmas effect but also boost you fashionista spirit. And one more thing, do not forget to wear patterns either on your accessories or shoes to make the outfit looks fun.

3. Shades of Beige

We have been talking about red lips with all black and all white, what about all beige? The answer is yes, please. Wearing neutral with red lips always looks good, but do bring some shades. Do not wear one shade of nude head to toe, it will make you look like a piece of cardboard, lol. Instead, by wearing different shades and a little touch of patterns will balance your outfit and obviously, you will look more fashionable and chic.
