FOTD: Lady in red...

..lipstick that is!

After grabbing all of these Jemma Kidd lipglosses with RED magazine this month, i had to try out the most daring of them all; Perfect Red. I've never worn red lips, i've never felt i had the confidence as it is quite a brave colour, especially with my (naturally) pale skin. This lipgloss would probably look better over a real 'red' lipstick, i don't own any red lipsticks/liner and so i used it just by itself. It did come off more on the pinky side of red, but still gorgeous non the less!

I kept the eyes neutral, as you would expect with all the focus on the lips, and the result? I loved my new look! I did feel self-conscious towards the beginning of the day but as time went on, i forgot i was wearing such a 'look at me' colour.

Do you ever wear red lips? What eyeshadow do you pair it with?


  1. that shade looks gorgeous on you! I rarely wear reds but if I do, I typically wear MAC Patina or Soba..natural golden browns are what I prefer :)

  2. if i wear red lipstick i usually pair it with lots of brown / golden eyeshadows and thick black lashes! xx
