It has a sex appeal to it, it shows your daring. If worn right it's very beautiful. When people wear really bright lipstick then yeah it's a little much. But if you pick a nice shade with your skin tone it's gorgeous! :) It's not hard to pull off a red lipstick, just most women pick a bright color and think it's good. When wearing a bright color like that, it takes careful planning. Or for me it does. I opt for making that my main focal point on my face. So my eye make up isn't there except for mascara and a bit of blush. Never want to over do it. I personally like a darker red. Not like a gothic red, but a bit lighter. I don't see myself as wanting tons of attention by wearing it, I just think it looks really pretty with my outfit :D
No. I wear red lipstick when I feel the most confident. When wearing this color it does bring sexual attraction, since it is a color that men are naturally attracted to, and it is on the lips, which is a very sensuous part of the body. So if everything else is toned down, and the lips are center stage, I think its classy, and sexy! :)
And for the question. No, I think if red lipstick is applied tastefully and the color is right for the woman's skintone, it can be stunning. I mean, you put red lipstick with a Bettie Page cut, simple eye makeup and a 50's style dress, you've got a vintage, classy look. Red lipstick can look two ways: really bad or really good.
It's really strange to look at when the girl is obviously self-confident ABOUT the lipstick and how others perceive the look. Not pulling it off, then.
But when a woman is confident, well-dressed and, let's be honest, actually knows which shade of red suits her, applies the lipstick well and has white teeth (if she doesn't, it really shows and looks terrible), the look is totally classy, fresh even. Imo.
I wouldn't say they're attention seeking, but red does really stand out. I think it makes a girl look more elegant/classy, definitely someone who had confidence not a lot of girls can pull it off. So, he's not right..
yeah all girls who wear red lipstick MUST be sluts who want attention from men. because that's the only reason someone would wear red lipstick. not because they like it, it's in style, or they are experimenting with a new look - it's only to make men everywhere horny
It's pretty well known that anything red catches your attention and makes people more attractive. Basic evolutionary psychology...
Furthermore, a study has been done in which they photoshopped two different colors (red and anything else) on some dude's shirt, after which they asked women about who they thought was more attractive. The guy in a red shirt won hands down. Stronger still: Even if they only changed the color of the FRAME he was in to red, the same response was there..
So there.. Red == attractive. To anyone.
So are they attention seeking? I don't know.. But in that same vein, guys wearing red shirts would be attention seeking jezzebelles (lolwhut?) as well ;p
And let's face it.. We're all seeking attention in some way or another.. So the more tasteful you go about it, the better, right... ;)
