No matter who you are or your relationship status, there’s no better day to sport a fiery red lipstick than Valentine’s Day. I’m often timid when it comes to sultry red lips, because, let’s be honest, they can be a bit of an attention grabber, and sometimes, they remind me of my childhood dance recital days. But V Day? Totally. Anyone can pull them off! I think I’ll even wear some around the house today, just because. (And as an aside: I also find it fascinating to examine lipstick packaging. Don’t you?)
Do you have a red lipstick shade you swear by?
