how do you all feel about red lipstick as casual wear? i always thought it'd be best saved for special occasions but i'm considering cutting my hair really short, possibly with blunt bangs, and i thought minimal eye makeup and a darkish red would be a nice pop of color.

are certain shades better for casual outfits then special ones?

i agree. i don't even wear foundation or blush since i can never find the perfect shade for me.

it depends on the outfit too. red lips dont work for all outfits. I wear the red lip look often but if i want a girlier softer look i wear pink.

I love red lipstick, but I'm not confident enough to wear it casually yet,
although I did get like a coral shade that isn't as dramatic to wear in the daytime.

I always feel it should be for a special occasion even though I'd love to wear it in the day. :)

Lipcote is amazing stuff for keeping your lipstick in place. Its about £3.99 and works a treat!

i looooove red lipstick and wear it quite often, I think it can make a simple casual outfit look instantly more glamourous..
i guess it just depends on what outfit you're wearing it with and what other makeup, if you want it to look casual then don't over-do your eye or face makeup. I personally think a bright, bold colour is great, but I stick to matte ones rather than glossy/shiny, I find that it can look a bit tacky.

If you put lipbalm on first then put the red on with your finger it makes it more casual and less in your face which is good for daytime. also a good idea if red doesn't suit you too well. it doesnt suit me but when i do it like that i can get away with it more.

The trick is to keep the rest of thefacenatural, and keep it matte. Red lips with a white tee and jeans makes a killer combination
