Red Lips

A few of you made the comment on my recent red lip tutorial that red lips are still out of your comfort zone. I completely understand. Even though a bright lip is often my go to right now, at one point I found wearing red lipstick so intimidating. I actually remember my first time wearing a red lip. It was during my last trip to New York and I took like 15 test photos of my face before leaving the hotel room to see how weird I looked. I decided that I didn't like smiling with the red lip because I thought it looked weird with my teeth haha. 27 year old Melissa was pretty ridiculous. 30 year old Melissa is completely normal... don't you dare say anything.
