“I’ve always been fascinated with those women for as long as I can remember. And I think that that had a big impact, and once I was old enough to start playing with makeup myself in high school, it started with the red lipstick.

Finding inspiration is endless when you’re surfing the net and visiting all of your favorite blogs.
I just found this via style.com, in their Beauty Essentials with Rita Ora:
“I’m always, always applying [red lipstick]. There’s this thing you can buy, actually, it’s like a see-through [top coat] you put on your lips, which stings for about a second, but it keeps the lipstick on without any smudging.” – Rita Ora, via Style.com
Apparently crimson pouts are considered too Sexy for a BBC Children’s Series….amazing. We all know that red can be toned down and that it’s available in all sorts of new formulations, it can be sweet and ladylike.
*Teen television hosts of the weekly BBC children’s series Friday Download have been banned from wearing red lipstick because it’s “too sexy.” Nothing ruins impressionable young minds faster than a scarlet woman. [Daily Mail]
