Red Lipsticks to work on any woman

Before we get to the good stuff (makeup! lipstick! Louboutin!) we need to talk about the colour red.  Let’s consult one of my favourite oracles of style, Diana Vreeland, who was obsessed with red.  She said,  “Red is the great clarifier – bright, cleansing, revealing.
