Fashionable Friday

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”-
Gwyneth Paltrow

Finding the perfect shade of red lipstick is a girl’s biggest beauty challenge rivaled only by achieving the perfect liquid line and applying mascara in the car. My quest for the perfect shade of red has been an on-again/off-again dysfunctional relationship of many years, but a screening of Pearl Harbor newly inspired my pursuit.

With her perfect red pout it’s no wonder Kate Beckinsale got BOTH Josh Harnett AND Ben Affleck in Pearl Harbor.

I’m happy to announce that I met with success and found my red lipstick soul mate in MAC’s “Ruby Woo”.

The above photo doesn’t quite do it justice. It’s a very bright, bold color and needs a lip liner to keep the color from bleeding out around your mouth. The perfect lip liner complement to “Ruby Woo” is “’Kiss Me Quick” from MAC. “Ruby Woo” looks good on a wide variety of skin tones. I have fair skin, light eyes, and dark hair, but it also looks amazing on those with darker eyes and skin tones. Here are some different celebrities wearing “Ruby Woo”.

If “Ruby Woo” isn’t the right match for you, ask someone at the MAC counter to help you find a shade that complements your skin tone. To paraphrase something I once read, “The right shade of red lipstick makes me feel like I can single handedly destroy the male species.” So go out and try on a bunch of colors until you find your power red.

Until Next Time,
