Victor Peace

It’s been a minute since I did a fashion filler and I’m about to give you one that might be a little controversial: matching your lipstick to your outfit. 

Now, this can be a little tricky because let’s be honest, being too matchy-matchy can be a hot mess. Pink lips, pink eye shadow, pink top, pink shoes, pink bag = not so cute unless you’re doing an editorial spread for Vogue. However, sometimes the idea of matching your makeup and outfit can be quite charming and, as in this case, maybe even a little sexy. Lady in red, anyone? 

I believe what made this outfit work lied in the simplicity of the look. A simple red dress, lipstick to match and minimal jewellery and accessories. Because red is quite a bold colour, I let it take the lead and made sure everything else was quite muted which is why I believe it worked out. 

I wasn’t so sure about the dress when I first saw it but once I tried it on, I fell in love. It took me back to a Craig David song where the lead woman in the video had on a beautiful red dress. I’d link the song here for you but I’d probably have to watch each an every one of his songs since I have no idea which one it is. Sorry! You’ll just have to take my word for it when I say she worked that dress.

I didn’t have a lip colour that matched the dress perfectly so I did the next best thing and mixed two different ones to get the perfect match. Wore this look to an office dinner and to keep things a little interesting, I went for a clutch with black and green hues and kept my shoes simple with black strappy sandals.

As always, thank you so much for reading and talk soon!

    Red lipstick + red dress is always a winner! On Wednesday, 13th Aug 2014 (just a few days ago, mark you). Mel B the former Spice Girl was decked out in all red and subtle gold jewelry for a night out.
