Wearing a red lip is empowering. But it's also tricky. Like every things else that is high risk, high reward. Applying red lipstick is one bold move toward minimalist, polished perfection — that is, if done right. For daytime, I always think it looks best with a light swipe of eye makeup and a simple hair style, either swept back, side parted, or worn loose and down. But the key is to let the red lips be the star. Amplify the excitement of it with low key jewelry and a simple neckline.
