Red Lip Tips

With the explosion of the new Disney film, Maleficent, it seems as though red is back on the scene.  Red nails, red lips, and not just an orange red or a rosey red; red red - a perfect shade for the supposed face of evil (...if you watch the movie, you might not end up thinking Maleficent is as evil as she has been made out to be).

Since the beginning of time, red lipstick has been very risky business.  It's difficult to pull off, and finding the right shade is hard to find, let alone the tricky task of keeping from looking like the Joker once it's applied.  But for some reason, Angie's wicked performance has inspired millions of women across the country to re-create the beautiful look with a collection of Maleficent makeup that MAC Cosmetics has produced.  And so, the Maleficent lipstick, called True Love's Kiss, along with most of the other Maleficent products, is sold out.

True Love's Kiss







Ruby Woo

Brave Red






But if it's sold out, which it is, try MAC's Ruby Woo or Brave Red - both are equally good!







My personal preference is Brave Red, but if you're going to wear a red lip like Angie, you have to own it.







Just because a red lipstick requires confidence doesn't mean you can't wear it!  Wear it and love it!  What are your favourite bold looks this summer?
