"RED IS THE BASIS FOR MAKE-UP, IT IS THE LIPS, THE NAILS. RED IS A NOBEL COLOR, A COLOR OF PRECIOUS STONES- THE RUBY- AND IT IS A DANGEROUS COLOR; SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO PLAY WITH DANGER. RED IS RELIGIOUS, AND IT IS BLOOD, AND IT IS ROYAL, IT IS PHEDRA, AND A MULTITUDE OF HEROINES. RED LIGHT AND RED COMBAT, RED IS COMBAT BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH." -YSL
This little bootie, the Serena by Jeffery Campbell, is a perfect accent to the rich dark colors of the season. Pair them with a little black dress and opaque black tights.
Red nails are classic and forever chic. I fell in love with Essie's Fall 2008 collection which features shades of deep merlot, rich reds and luxe berries. If you're only going to get one, make sure it's "Forever Young" a bright rich red which you'll wear on your nails this season and your toes during Spring 09.
A red lip can be a very dangerous thing. It's seductive, sexy and sophisticated all at the same time. I create my red lip using Vincent Longo lip vinyl in Fellini Red. It's shiny so the red lip looks modern and hip.
