"Beauty is, to me, being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick" - Gwyneth Paltrow
I salute Gwyneth for saying that because it is exactly true. Some people cannot live without mascara or eyeliner, but me, a swipe of red lipstick can instantly boost my confidence.
5 reasons why red lipsticks are awesome:
1. Red = Power
Red lipsticks scream so many things like sexy, confident, powerful, fierce, and more and more adjectives. It doesn't matter what shade of red it is, as long as it is red, you're on! My personal favorite red lipstick is the MAC Russian Red, if I finish my current tube, I will not hesitate to repurchase. Not only it is a true red (with blue tone), it is matte too. So much win.
2. It suits every age range
Whether you're 18, 28, 38, 48 or 58, red lipsticks never fail to make you look gorgeous. I personally do not fancy red colors but when it is on your lips, everything just falls into place. My grandmother who is 76 still wears red lipstick and she rocks.
3. You can wear it on any occasion
Parties, graduation, family photo, weddings, interview, everyday to work, anywhere. In my experience, you can just wear red lipsticks anywhere you go, it is never wrong.
People may think wearing red lipstick has too much work on getting your whole outfit together but really, red lipstick is actually doing you a favor. Red lipsticks can be a statement to what you're wearing and you don't have to worry about anything else.
5. Suits any style
It doesn't matter if your personal style in grungy, punk, feminine, classy or elegant, red lipsticks can't go wrong.

I know It takes a lot of courage to wear red lipsticks but based on my experience, I got addicted to red lipsticks prior to one wear. One of my goals is to get a collection full of different shades of red lipsticks. I'm holding on to it!
