City Girl in Red Lipstick – New York, Scarlet Sinclair, Tattoo Artist

430223_3759286695767_1622968238_nScarlet Sinclair is a multifaceted tattoo artist who every so often moonlights as a burlesque performer and is known to dabble in white magic, okay she’s a good witch and she’s given me good advice.

We asked Scarlet about red lipstick and she graciously shared her favorite hues of crimson with us.

MAC Ruby Woo is my go-to “WOW” red for when I want to dress up or just wear something bright and show-stopping. But sometimes it’s too dry, so my second MAC fave is Russian Red… similar stunning true red, just creamier. Other favorites include Besame’s Red Velvet which is a deep, classic red (I’m a sucker for their vintage packaging!). And my new everyday favorite is Tarte’s Lipsurgence Matte Lip Stain in Fiery, it’s a lovely deep red yet has a very soft quality to the color… it’s a matte finish yet feels like lip balm.

I’ve always been a fan of red lipstick for some reason. It hearkens back to old Hollywood glamour and makes me feel fearless even if I’m in jeans and a t-shirt. I’m also a practicing witch so I believe in using makeup as a tool of transformation and feminine power. I remember once enchanting my red lipstick before a job interview, to help me speak with clarity and confidence. It works!”– Scarlett Sinclair, Tattoo Artist
