The red lip is definitely the most iconic lipstick shade ever created. The red lippy, as it is often called, is a popular choice for strong, bold women that want to pass across a message of confidence and defiance to everyone they encounter throughout the day. Wearing this lipstick colour demonstrates that the wearer means business. The red lipstick is a classic symbol of power, and sexiness, and you will find many female celebrities including Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and Rita Ora rocking the crimson pout on a regular basis.
The following are five awesome reasons why you too need to wear a red lipstick.
It is a sign of confidence
Wearing a red lipstick conveys that you are confident and have a high self-esteem. Such qualities are quite attractive, and they will draw others to you. Personality traits such as these will set you apart from others around you, and everyone else will be looking to you for leadership. Furthermore, exuding confidence throughout your day will make it easy for people to trust you and follow your lead.
It possesses a vintage quality
When you have the red lipstick on, you are paying homage to classic stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. These great women, not only conquered Hollywood with their brains and beauty, they also owned the red lip movement. Wearing the red lippy is a tradition passed down through numerous generations of great women. Every time you wear this lipstick, you are exemplifying the vintage beauty, brains and class reminiscent of the likes of Taylor and Monroe, as well as many other great and influential women whose favourite lipstick colour was red.

You are all about fashion over function
The red lip is for those women who are absolutely fearless. These are the risk takers, who know that to look breathtakingly good requires them to be audacious.
