I have been having a good year so far when it comes to my beauty and fashion choices, because I am finally able to pick some favorites that I know I would continue using forever (as long as they don't get discontinued). One of my current favorites is the Chanel Rouge Allure in Number 99, which is a very glamorous red shade of lipstick.
I have been looking for a Marilyn Monroe red lipstick, because I have been wanting to take the chance and go for a Marilyn look for a special family celebration, but I honestly fell in love with this darker red shade from Chanel.
Red lips have always been a hit, and they will continue to be very important in the world of beauty and makeup, however, one should be very careful when deciding to wear a red lip! simply because they can make you look tacky quite easily.
I would recommend you keep the eye makeup very minimal if you are opting for a red lip, this way you can keep the focus on the red lips and not look over done. Just think of what Marilyn and her famous makeup artist Allan 'Whitey' did to create a gorgeous and glamorous red lip look, that became a beauty phenomena across the world, they basically kept the eyes simple, flirty eye lashes, and perfect young looking skin.
If you have been looking for a good red lipstick, I certainly would recommend you pick Chanel Rouge Allure in Number 99 :)
Have fun! xoxo
