I am a sucker for a red lip and it’s not just for fancy outfits. I love wearing red lipstick for casual days because it brings my outfit up a notch. Back when my first daughter was 6 months old, I admired my good friend Amy for always wearing bright lipstick. It was usually red. She wore her red lipstick for casual days, dressed up nights & parties at home. She encouraged me to branch out from my nude lip and wear a bold statement lip.
I had no clue where to start and how to even wear red lipstick for casual days. Amy met me for lunch and then we walked over to Sephora. Now, I was already a Sephora addict but I had never dove into lipsticks there. Amy knew just what brands to introduce me to. She thought I would look best in a red lipstick that had a blue undertone (as opposed to orange) and after trying on several red lipsticks, I agreed. It was so fun having my friend encourage me to try this new thing and I have been wearing bright, bold lipsticks ever since!
Red Lipstick for Casual Days
I want to challenge you to branch out and step away from your usual routine. Grab a friend and go try on some fun lipsticks! You never know what fun you can have and you may learn something new about yourself. I walked away with a couple reds and I’ve linked them here for you. All of them have the blue undertone and will look good on most skin tones.
Next week, I am sharing how to pick the perfect pink lipstick. I have several and I love wearing pink. It’s turned into my signature lip color. Could it be yours too? I can’t wait to find out!
Let me know what if you are wearing red lipstick for casual days and if you aren’t you need to start!
