Monday resolutions! To experiment with red…



Image found via Pinterest, originally from Stylesight.

One of my new year’s resolutions was to wear more yellow, but now it’s winter I think I might just put yellow on a temporary hiatus and replace it with red. I want to wear red lipstick, red nail varnish, and that red jumper that’s been lingering in the back of my wardrobe since last year because it’s just so darn hard to style. Not all together mind you, or I’d run the risk of looking like Mrs Claus.

My red obsession was triggered when I found this gorgeous image (^^^) on Pinterest a week or so ago. I love how pared down the rest of the model’s makeup is, so that the focus is entirely on her beautiful red nails and lipstick. I *never* wear red nail varnish (child-sized nails and grown up colours don’t marry well) but now’s the time to try, I think.

What’s your resolution for the week ahead? :)

    What a gorgeous look that is! I’ve got the red nail varnish covered, now all I need is a red lip! That’s a bit dary though, and I never seem to get around to that, haha. Maybe this week! xx

    I highly recommend Chanel Pirate for your red. So poppy. Armani do excellent red matte lippy and also liner. Can’t believe you can’t style a red jumper you wally! Blue jeans, red jumper, job’s a good’un…

    I love red lipstick – on others. I think it looks silly on me, but I’m trying to experiment with different tones in the hopes to finally find one that fits me and my personality.

    Wearing red is a challenge for me as a pale redhead. I usually wear it on my nails and on my feet. I love red shoes! :-)

    There’s something about red that is just so classy and classic! x

    I’m okay with nail varnish but a red lip completely evades me! Every time I try, it looks like I’m a kid playing with my mums makeup! I’m still trying though…xx

    I love red nails! There is nothing quite as classic.
    I am not so brave with red lips though, I wish I was.

    I couldn’t live without red lipstick- Max Factor’s lipstains are good as they are less high maintenance! I am trying to wear lipstick every day, I manage at the beginning of the week but by the end…

      Oh yes Max F lipstains are ace. Been getting on v well with those. I like that you can’t feel anything on your lips and the colour range is narrow but lots of quite smart shades there…

    I wear red lipstick allll the time. I used to be afraid of it, but once I saw one of my style idols, Taylor Swift, try it I just had to and now I cant get enough!

    I don’t know what it is about the Autumn that puts me in the mood to wear red too! I’ve been thinking it’s time to start easing into red lipstick again!

  • Madeline

    I have so many red lipsticks I don’t wear because I am always too nervous to ! I’m going to try this too !

    I wear a red lipstick and my boyfriend looked at me and he said: “You look like Ronald McDonald”…But I wear it, because I reeeeally like!!

    I’m always wishing I was brave enough to wear some lovely bright red lipstick, but I have found that it just makes me super self-conscious. Maybe I need to start with something a little more pale. I don’t usually wear ANY make up at all.

  • Kelly

    Eek, I love red nail polish. Mine are currently pink but going to change them soon :)
