Red Lipstick is the New Black

Looks like history really does repeat itself; red lipstick seems to be a "thing" again. The last time it was popular was during World War II, The Civil Rights Movement, and Roe v. Wade. I don't know what happened between now and then but girls have definitely been stepping up their lip stick game.

I personally like this trend because everyone can take part in it. 50 shades of Red look good an 50 shades of skin tones. No matter what color you are, you can find a lip stick to match. I like this trend because not only can any skin tone pull it off but any age range as well. Aside from like 5 year olds because I don't approve of that but i mean if your fifty and fierce and want to wear red I say live it up.

Or maybe you don't even care about that aspect; maybe you match your lips to the occasion. You know that saying "Don't kiss and tell," well with lipstick being a defining attribute to your outfit that might not be as easy anymore.

A little history about lipstick:

3000 BC: These chicks used to make this stuff from gemstones! They literally wore jewels and money on their lips. BO$$!

1500s: Only prostitutes wore lips as red as a rose, so upper classes wore the "all natural" look. 

1770: There was a law saying that women who were "done up" were considered witches. Lipstick all of a sudden became magical. 

What do guys think about this "lipstick" thing?

"Well, its not for me."

"I only notice it if it's super pop-ish. That's when I'm like too much."

"If it's on her it'll look great. If I can get her to get it on me by the end of the night, me neither better."

"To be honest, I don't really notice, but it looks good most of the time."

"It has to look right. Like some girls wear colors that just don't work. Like I'm not use to anyone wearing lipstick really but sometimes a girl gets a shade and rocks it."

"It depends on the girl. On some girls lipstick looks stupid but on other it works really well. It's all about their face."

How does this "lipstick" thing work?

You have your color chic, oh-so-diverse color pallet and you basically Marilyn Monroe it. It's pretty much one of the most iconic make-up trends 

1. Pick your favorite lipstick

2. Start applying on the bottom lip from the middle out.

3. Lip liner can be your friend, so make sure you buy the matching liner to the lipstick. Makes your lips look fuller. Apply it! Make sure its super sharp (like those gemstones the Cleopatra's used to wear) and pay extra attention to your upper lips little crease thingy. 

4. Press your lips together to blend the product.

5. Blow a kiss.
