Hello, my friends! Today at The Cathy Diaries, we're talking about RED LIPS.
Show More Hello, my friends! Today at The Cathy Diaries, we're talking about RED LIPS.
Red lips can be a little bit intimidating in some cultures and countries because it symbolizes SEDUCTION and SEXUALITY.
For example, every time my best friend puts on a red lipstick, her aunt would ask her to wipe it off her lips because she thinks it's too sexy. But, red also means LOVE, PASSION, and HAPPINESS. So, in this video, I'm going to show you that you CAN wear red lips on a CASUAL occasion. What's wrong with embracing your happiness with a little red, right? :)
Also, I would like to dedicate this video to my best friend all the way back in Indonesia, Melysa W. She is the one who inspires me to make this video so thank you for all the love and support! Can't wait to see you again! XOXO
P.S. I still can't believe I showed my BARE face to the whole wide world but hey, I'm just keeping it real here. Nobody's perfect! ;)
P.S.S. I hope this video inspires you to be more daring with your makeup. Express yourself!
WHY I PUT THE LIPSTICK FIRST?
Because If you put on your eye makeup or blush first, you could go a little overboard because you're trying to put color on your face. With the lipstick on, the color is already there, so you just need to add some finishing touches.
When wearing red lipstick, especially for a CASUAL occasion, I try to keep the rest of the face as SIMPLE as possible.
