I’m usually not political, at least not publicly but this is a good cause and I can proudly say I participated this morning. If you gals have an instagram account and an image of yourself wearing your favorite shade of crimson then you may just want to participate too.
Over at the Huffington Post they posted an article in relations to Sexual Assault and a campaign that deserves to be mentioned, as we each could easily fall prey to unwanted advances from strangers or men that are supposed to be our friends.
They chose Red Lipstick as their moniker and rightly so, just because you’re gorgeous inside & out doesn’t mean you want advances from strangers and No, means NO!

Just post your image and tag it #RedMyLipsCampaign or #RedMyLips, I did both.
You guys by now know I’m an instagram junkie and love discovering amazing people with amazing talents, especially when red lipstick is involved.
Many of you may have seen Blair Breitenstein’s work gracing various ad campaigns i.e Coach, Prada, Calvin Klein. I love the fact that in various pieces of Blair’s artwork, crimson pouts are a focal point. That and the fact that she looks stunning in red.
In this photo she’s sporting one of my favorite Velvet Matte Lip Pencils by Nars in Cruella, looks like I’m going to have to go out and re-buy it.
“I wear red lipstick when I want to spice up my appearance, it makes me feel at least 10x fancier with barely any effort” – Blair Breitenstein, Illustrator
Also, in case you guys were wondering, you can purchase Blair’s work through her etsy shop.
