Styling secrets to match that power pout
Picking up right where we left off with our last Wonder Plays Dress-Up pilot episode, we’re back with yet another tricky trend for unpacking: the red lip. Now, we know, a beauty trend in a styling series? Yes. Purely intentional. We’ve worked the timeless yet trendy red lip into the Dress-up narrative because it’s powerful (is there any trend more women’s month appropriate?), it’s show-stopping, and yet, it’s feared by so many guys and gals for those very reasons.
Why shy away from it, when you can work it instead? It’s ambitious, surely, but not impossible.
In the video ahead, we break down five sartorial solutions for the red lip dilemma. Julia, our go-to Dress-up muse, sports Dior’s Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge lipstick in shade 999, lauded for being flattering on all skin colors across the board.
