It’s Independence Day here in the US, and while the nation is celebrating the red, white, and blue, we wanted to have a bit of fun with today’s post and just focus on the red—lipstick, that is! Red lipstick invokes different moods and feelings for different women. Some women gravitate to red with gusto, while others shy away or shun it completely. Whether you prefer it bold or subtle, there is a red for you. But let’s face it, red lipstick isn’t always the easiest to wear. We’ve combed the web to find the best tips from our favorite green beauty resources (including NAA Member on A Mission, Oresta Korbutiak’s blog), on choosing and wearing your perfect shade of red. Check out these must-reads, and break out your red lipstick today:

Red lipstick in our routine

Here we are rocking our favorite shades of red…



Tisha wears Nudus lipstick in Dirty Diana.

Rachael wears Hemp Organics lipstick in Cayenne.

Jolene wears Ilia lip conditioner in Crimson & Clover.

Feeling festive yet? We love how a quick swipe of red can make us feel more glam, elegant, or read to party. We’ve worn it everywhere from a black tie dinner to the grocery store. Today we celebrate our freedom to wear red—or any other lipstick color for that matter—on any occasion!
