    I love red lipstick with total black. I love it.

    ^^That's such a sophisticated, elegant look MJ. Verrry French.

    I'm no cosmetician, but I think the mistake most people make with red lipstick is that they have the wrong shade for their skin -- blue/red for people with ivory undertones and brown or orangy/red for people with olive undertones -- and that they don't adjust their makeup accordingly. A bit of bronzer or a slightly darker foundation will work better than a stark white look unless that's what you're going for (Tiki).

    Red is a classic colour that works for everyone but the thing is, most people don't adjust to looking at themselves differently very easily.

    An absolutely beautiful colour that works on most people is Indian Red by Dior. It's a bit bluish for me, but I still wear it once in a while. It really has va va voom appeal.

    I also have a Bobbi Brown burgundy shade that is great on most people.

    I love the red on Charlize. I wore red lipstick in my 20's, in my late 30's I'd only wear a very sheer red. If your young and you can carry it, wear it well!

    I like that red shade on her, too. I *think* I can pull off dark cherry reds and earthy brown reds. I'm gonna go get myself a shade like the one Charlize is wearing tmr for the wedding I'm going to!

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    I'm too fair skinned to ever pull off red lips. I think red lips make me look like either some crazy whore at the Moulin Rouge or Bette Davis in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.

    Exactly. A shade can look gorgeous until you put it on & smile, even if your teeth are actually pretty white. I think I've heard that bluish reds are better for brightening teeth.

    There was a Rose McGowan thread somewhere & she was really pale & ivory, but looked great with red lipstick. Think she was wearing all black in the pictures.

    Have Rose McGowan's collagen lips been discussed?

    I don't think it's collagen, I think it's lipstick. And red really suits her!

    It does. And did you notice that her face is a little darker than usual in that pic? It's either foundation or bronzer or both, but it works with the red. I think her lips are real...they've always been full.
