In exchange for her Delish Biscuity Scone-sh Treats recipe I told Dwija I would share my tips on wearing red lipstick. So this is what I've got:
A friend from high school reminded me via Facebook that the eye make-up should be more simple when one wears red lipstick. So I did that, but I usually keep the eyes simple since I wear glasses.
I envisioned old screen sirens telling me to "just do it, darling" in between drags on their cigarettes.
Gaston from Beauty and the Beast says you should screw your courage to the sticking point, and while he may have been talking about hunting down beasts I thought it was appropriate advice in this situation.
I applied it in the presence of my 4 year old daughter who thinks I am utterly beautiful.
I pumped myself up by listening to Ke$ha tell me to live like "we're gonna die young."
And then I just said to myself, "Oh what the heck!" and put it on and left the house.

So there you go, Dwij. Those are my tips for wearing red lipstick.
