You don’t need to be a makeup junkie in order to know how important a tube of red lipstick is to a lady’s arsenal. It’s the beauty department’s version of a little black dress. No matter the season, you can be sure that it’ll never go out of style. More importantly though, a red lippie is your BFF, one you can conveniently carry around inside your pocket if you’re ever in need of an instant pick-me-upper.
Below, the many different scenarios where a swipe of red will come in handy.
1. On lazy days, when you’re simply not up to doing your makeup.
Because, really, a pop of red will do the trick.
2. Or when you have a lot of time to spare.
Filled-in brows, a bouffant ‘do, and the whole shebang. Red puckers would most definitely look divine with a winged eye flick, too!
3. When you need an instant confidence booster.
If you ever run out of Hallmark cards, nothing says “you can do it!” better than a punchy red lip.
4. When you’re feeling as pretty as Queen Bey.
Who run the world? Girls.
5. When you want to impress your beau.
Show off those pearly whites and flash him your hundred-megawatt smile.
6. When all you have is time for a quick retouch.
Don’t keep your date waiting for too long. A bold red pout can instantly brighten up your face.
7. When you want to leave a strong, lasting impression.
It could very well be the cherry on top of your Chanel No. 5.
8. When you’re still not over your ex.
Quit whining, stop crying, and just pucker up. At least you’ll look pretty, even when it hurts.
9. And when you’re finally ready to move on.
He was such a fool to let you go and not realize your worth, so show him that he’s made a huge mistake. Looking good, after all, is the sweetest revenge.
