Whenever the Christmas season begins you see a lot of red and white all over the place. Those colors are synonymous with the season. So I really started to think about the color red and my lips. I have never worn red lipstick or gloss before. I always wear pinks and beiges and the occasional dark berry but not absolute red. I think it looks so weird on me but I know that there is a red shade for every person no matter what your ethnicity you are. Maybe I haven’t tried hard to find my shade. Lucky magazine featured a few sheer red shades that are suitable for winter.
