I think it’s safe to say that dramatic red lips in a nice classic Marilyn Monroe shade will always be in. We all become obsessed with funky shades of pink and glitter or nude lips every once in awhile (depending on the season and occasion), but we always depend on the nice red lip for a classy night out.
That being said, it is a dramatic color, if you’re just heading to your 8am class (remember, we are only college students), and more frequently and associated with the more mature and mysterious ones, but I’ve lately become obsessed with the idea of going red with my lips a la Jen Brill. It’s eye catching and adds a new twist to your outfit–though I would be careful to keep the rest of your make up more simplistic to not look overdone and borderline costume/dragqueen-ish…
Product-wise, NARS in Manhunt ($24) is always a reliable pick, but make sure you pick a shade that is right for your skintone and always always keep for lips moisturized! And then, well, have fun with it!
