{two lovely things: red hair & lipstick}

two lovely things

. . . often thought to clash, red hair & lipstick actually looks rather fetching, don't you think? . . . and despite the myriad of beautiful options for taming winter tresses, still clinging to a chic and messy topknot or a classic chignon for simplicity's sake, although now may be a little inspired to weave a tangle of braids . . .

I agree with the statement for your small and pretty post!! Red hair if it really really becomes you though otherwise red hues are perfect.

I love this version here

Ah yes. I must agree with you there R. I've naturally auburn tresses myself --though I sometimes flirt with highlights & other shades-- and I'm always inclined toward the red lipstick. Warm garnet and deep ruby are my favorites... lovely images.

normally I'm not a fan of red heads (I know that's awful to say but I can't lie) - there are definitely a few exceptions and this post proves just that! totally stunning

I wore red lipstick for the first time last year and it's definitely a new friend of mine ;)

I absolutely love this! As a red lipstick wearing redhead I think this is a fantastic look. It is always good to stretch the limits and this is a classic way of doing so.
