Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and it’s the perfect time to apply some red lipstick and red nails. Even if red isn’t your color there is a shade here that will suit your skin tone or style. Red lipstick and nail polish is sexy, romantic and sultry. I was one of those girls who never wore red lipstick or nail polish but always loved it on others. I never thought it looked good on me or it was too much. After trying probably a hundred different reds, I found some that will suit anyone. Give it a try and I guarantee that when you find your shade you will have an instant confidence boost!
I’ll start with Pat McGrath Labs lipstick, I’m obsessed with everything Pat McGrath! This MatteTrance Lipstick in Vendetta is a dark red and looks incredible on. It will instantly turn you into a vixen. This color is a really deep red it has no orange tones in it. It is a true deep red. The matte is not drying and won’t make your lips look like they are cracking. It is also a long wear lipstick so you won’t have to worry about lipstick stains on your wine glass or reapplying after those Valentine’s day kisses.

Are you not into matte lipsticks but more of a gloss girl? No7 High Shine Gloss in Pink Hydrangea is for you. What I love about this gloss is that it gives you a high shine lip but also doesn’t feel sticky at all. It feels really hydrating. The color is really soft and makes your lips look pillowy and kissable. If you don’t want to wear it alone it will look great on top of lipstick as well.
