Valentines Day Red Lips

Humm... what should I wear for Valentines Day??? 
Whatever you end up wearing make sure you pair it with Red Lips!

They are a lot easier than you would think. Let me start by saying this look is perfect for those without dates too because you can still look fly without having to reapply lipstick all the time. For those with men taking them out to dinner, watch out because you may have other men following you to your table these lips are so hot!

For a red lip, the most important thing I staying power! Nothing is worse than a red lip that turns pink... all over your teeth... and all over everyone else. I used a lip color by Revlon because I like that it stays on and has a matte finish. I find that when I use a glossy red it has a higher likelihood of ending up on my teeth and feathering off my lips. 

But red is great for so much more than just Valentines day. Color theory states that:

"Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. Red represents energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. "

This is why I wear red lips with my power suit. It shows I am powerful and full of passion and energy. 

Try out the red lip and let me know what you think.
