Rouge Darling

“I believe that all women should wear red lipstick”, bravely said the celebrated Irish make-up artist Leonard Daly (who has an excellent blog at beautybaked.com).

I soaked up his words and became bolder. I saw a beautiful girl on the metro in Paris with messy hair and bright red lipstick – she looked amazing, effortlessly glamorous and oh so French.

I hovered nervously at the MAC store and hesitated between Ruby Woo and Russian Red. I went for both – ‘go large or go home’.

Embracing life and old-school glamour I now boldly go where I have never been before with a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ in my step.

If you are not so easily persuaded, perhaps start with some red on the table to add a little ooh-la-la to your day?

Then paint your nails vibrant red …..

Have fun, it’s the holiday season!
