“Red lipstick is a fashion accessory. So we won’t wear any other makeup with it. Then our hair has to be messy, our skin has to be perfect, and we’ll just wear jeans and heels because the lipstick makes the statement.” – Paris-based makeup artist Violette on French beauty, as told to Vogue.com
Nothing brightens up my face as a swipe of colorful lipstick. Additionally, it’s also the perfect way to glam up any outfit. My favourite combination: all black with a bold red lip. Although MAC’s Ruby Woo is my all time favourite shade of red, at the moment I’m slowly moving towards more subdued colours. NARS Dolce Vita is a lovely MLBB (my lips but better) sheer lipstick that I would love to add to my current collection. If you have any other suggestions that might suit my olive skin tone, let me know!
