Red lips and nails have been around since cosmetics became mainstream. Women often chose to wear both looks at once, as red was one of the only color options out there. However, red lips and nails worn together aren’t as popular these days – but they should be!
Glamour magazine’s beauty blog recently pointed out the look on Michelle Williams at the Paris premiere of My Week With Marilyn. She paired the bright lips and manicure with a pastel pink dress, which made the colors pop and gave her ensemble an unrivaled cuteness.
If you want to get the same effect, look for a deep watermelon shade of Youngblood – Lipstick. Apply two coats of the color, blotting in between. Use a clear lip gloss in the center of your lower lip to create dimension and add a hint of shine.
For your manicure, trim your nails short and slightly squared, then apply base coat and two coats of Lippmann Collection – Nail Lacquers in a shade that matches your lipstick. Finish with a top coat and put on a light pastel outfit. You’ll look fabulous!
