What I particularly love about red lipstick is how it automatically adds something new to your outfit. You may have worn your skinny leg jeans with a white tee shirt many times but I assure you, when you add red lipstick to this casual look, you've already created a new and eye catching look. We can't forget one of the best advantages of wearing red lipstick....making your teeth look incredibly white!
Below I have styled 3 outfits that I think work best with red lipstick. I'm wearing Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pure Shine Sheer Lipstick in all three looks.
RED LIPS WITH A WHITE DRESS
The first piece I suggest to team with red lipstick is a white dress. It could be a formal white dress or even a summer day dress. The combination creates great contrast. Check out a similar look to my own that I've styled from online shops for you in 'Red Lips Look 1' (below my look). This way you can recreate the look if you like.

RED LIPS WITH SKINNY LEG JEANS
Another great look to wear with red lipstick is a simple white tee shirt and skinny leg jeans. It will instantly create edge to a very simple look. See the look below.

RED LIPS WITH ALL BLACK
Adding red lipstick to an all black outfit allows you to remove any guilt from not wearing any other colour. You don't always have to add red somewhere else in your outfit to help tie in your red lipstick. It can certainly be your statement and stand on it's own. Below, however I added red nail polish and red shoes with my all black look.
