Use color. Use red lipstick. You don’t have to save red lipstick for fancy occasions, you can and should wear it every day! Red lipstick can be an accessory, and it goes with almost anything. The most important thing to remember is to find the right shade of red for you. For those of you with warmer skin tones, Kat Von D’s Archangel is perfect. It has warm undertones, but nothing orange-y, and a matte look, rather than glossy or shiny.
You won’t need a lot, just a little will go a long way. And it stays on well, so you won’t need to re-apply often. It makes my lips feel smooth, not dried out. Archangel may look darker than what you expect, but once on your lips, it’s a classic red.
