The Classic Red Lip!!

Psychologically, in the Western world at least, red is recognized as the power color and personifies strength, courage, passion, sacrifice and warning. The symbolism is overt: Stop signs are red; a siren flashes red. That said, donning red lips is possibly the most dramatic ornamental statement a woman can make.  

Rule No. 1: The secret to wearing a strong red lip is feeling comfortable.

Rule No. 2: Line inside of lips
A lipstick is not always sharp in the tip so the lips look deformed. Try using a lip pencil that is sharp enough for the corners around your mouth and at the top of your lips.

Rule No. 3: Pick the right color
If your complexion is pink, you'll look better in plum shades, while girls with yellow tones are flattered by warmer reds that have a brown base. The paler the skin, the bigger the pop but you can always mix and match with two lipsticks instead of throwing them away. Another suggestion is try a very thin line of eyeliner or simply skip it so it wont over power your lips.

Rule No. 4: Don't let nails clash
A matchy matchy is a tacky tacky.
