Weekly Chic – Red Lips

Ok…I have to admit I didn’t wear lipstick so much before because I always forgot this last step of makeup. Yesterday, I made a video call with my best friend Jen – a super stylish girl from Hong Kong. We had not seen each other for couple of months. I noticed that she was wearing red lipstick and looked amazing! She didn’t wear too much makeup on her eyes. So the red lip became the focal point on her face. I didn’t want to say that, but the truth was I had noticed the huge difference between bare lips and red lips. Even though women might be the most complicated thing in the world, but she still could be simple sometimes. After applying red lipstick this morning, I felt my energy had come back. I amazed that color actually influenced the aura a lot. A small difference actually could make a big change.

This is one of my favorite pictures of Marilyn Monroe. I know she might look sexier or prettier on other of her pictures, but this one mentioned innocence to me. In addition to No.5 perfume, Chanel “Ruby” lipstick is her favorite. This is not true red lipstick, but if you think the true red might look too vivid to wear in daily life, the reddish-orange is still a good choice.

I didn’t were too much eye shadow when I wore red lipstick. Every woman should know only one focal point on face is enough. Try to match black clothes with red lip. Nature eyes, red lips, black clothes…these might be what make Paris women look so chic.

Nars Kabuki Lip Coffret

Nars Kabuki Brush Set

Nars Kabuki collection is one of my favorites recently. François Nars was inspired by Japanese traditional kabuki makeup to create this artistic collection. The collection looks like an elegant Japanese cuisine. Since I ordered the Kabuki Lip Coffret, I knew I would never use them. How could I ruin this art piece?

Check out this video above which was made by makeup guru Michelle Phan.

Enjoy~Hope you find your perfect red lips!
