The history of Red Lipstick

Red lipstick has been a staple in beauty routines since the beginning of time, with red lip stains recorded as far back as 10,000 BC from ancient Egyptians to modern-day celebrities, red lipstick is more popular than ever!

The use of red pigments dates back to Mesopotamian civilizations which used red clay and plant extracts to create reddish tints for lips and cheeks. Ancient Egyptians were also known for their signature red lips made from a combination of red ochre, carmine beetles and even crocodile poop! It was during the Victorian era when red lipstick became fashionable among women, in the early 1900s Hollywood stars such as Lauren Bacall and Marilyn Monroe adopted red lipstick as part of their signature red-carpet glamour, and red lips became a symbol of the modern woman. 



Today red lipstick is used to express femininity and confidence and is seen on runways, red carpets and everywhere in between.

How to apply Red Lipstick

When it comes to red lipstick, there is no one-size-fits-all approach, depending on the look you are going for, there are a few ways to apply red lipstick that will help you achieve the perfect pout. 

First, make sure your lips are prepped and primed before applying red lipstick. Start by exfoliating your lips with a soft toothbrush or lip scrub, this will remove any dry or dead skin cells and ensure a smooth application. Then, use a good quality lip balm to keep moisture in your lips so they won’t appear chapped after wearing red lipstick. 

When you’re ready to apply red lipstick, start by outlining your lips with a lip liner  in a red shade that matches your lipstick. For a precise application, use short strokes to trace the edges of your lips. Once you’ve completed outlining your lips, fill them in with red lipstick using the same method, this will help keep the color from bleeding or feathering into fine lines and creases around your mouth.



For an extra dramatic look, layer red lipstick over red lip liner for full opaque coverage and depth of color. Then, finish off by blending out any harsh lines with a small brush and top it off with some lip gloss for added shine!


What to wear with Red Lipstick?

Red lipstick is an iconic beauty look that can instantly dress up any outfit. Depending on the occasion, red lipstick can be paired with a variety of clothing pieces to create a stunning and fashionable look. 

For casual daytime looks, try pairing red lipstick with jeans and a shirt. I recommend wearing the denim jeans Paz by Sientochenta with the black shirt Margot by Thea Studio and the ankle boots Lyra Black by Bala Di Gala, add in some accessories like statement earrings or a bold scarf to add texture to the look such as the Olivia by Daniella Batlle. 

For more formal occasions, red lipstick pairs beautifully with darker colors such as black or navy blue. A classic LBD (little black dress) is perfect for this! If you’re looking for something more daring, experiment with red and pink together – the contrast will make your lips pop, you can wear the little black dress Manhattan Mini by Kadu or the Thar Black Dress by Morena Del Rey, pair it with the heels Danet by Peyola. 



If you’re going out at night , red lipstick looks great with a black jumpsuit or a red midi dress. Finish off the look with some metallic jewelry and some red heels. You can also try experimenting with textures such as velvet and lace – the contrast will make your red lips stand out even more! 

No matter what you’re wearing, red lipstick is always an eye-catching choice that can instantly add drama to any outfit. So don’t be afraid to experiment and find the perfect combination of clothing pieces to show off your bold lip color!

Red lipstick is always sure to make a statement! Whether you’re going for bold or subtle, there is a red lipstick look for any occasion.  So go ahead and rock that red pout! You’ll be sure to turn heads wherever you go.
