Hello Darlings, The moment you leave your hair dresser as a redhead, is the day you inherit a large set of rules — don't wear orange, absolutely stay away from wearing red, never wear turquoise, don't even think about blue eye shadow, and most basic of all never ever wear red lipstick!
Having red hair is a statement and the reason why I love having it. Since accessorizing does not come as second nature, I've always loved that my red hair is always my key accessory. I would not suggest that anyone adapt this mentality as adding pop of color to an outfit with hair color is not very practical :) I will admit that my entire wardrobe is based around my hair color. It is a bizarre concept and one that most blondes or brunettes do not deal with.
Until last night, I have never ever worn red lipstick! Luckily as part of my gift bag from a very well done Giorgio Armani lunch last week, was the most beautiful shade of orange / red called tibetan orange (401). It is Armani's latest lip potion called Lip Maestro. The color is insane! The formula is made of concentrated pigments that act as lip stain offering long wear (it lasted me through a four course meal) but without the drying effect of a traditional stain. The lip color is the most beautiful color of red I have ever seen. I have not been this in love with any beauty product as I am with this one, so today I am gushing :P

I loved the look so much so that I decided to try it for day-wear to go shopping. Slightly nervous to wear something this bold, I loved the result. With lip color this bright, the rest of the make-up can be as minimal as none. For dark fall days, this is perfect!
Whoever said that redheads cannot wear red lipstick probably never found the right shade!
