Lady in Red



Daytime Dare

Welcome to Daytime Dare, tarte’s newest blog feature! Now before you start having flashbacks of traumatic Truth/Dare sessions from adolescence, allow me to explain. Daytime Dare will be a bi-monthly post that will challenge you to incorporate an element of style and beauty that seems strictly p.m., into your a.m. life.

Remember my Mother’s Day post when I totally ripped on my poor mother for her red lipstick addiction? Well, insert foot into mouth. I was wrong! Mama Thompson was (kinda) on to something sporting that rouge mouth of hers. From the models of J.Crew to everyone’s fave “Good Girl Gone Bad,” Rihanna, all signs seem to point to red!

Daytime’s new rouge pout gets an update by being paired with casual garb and perfectly rumpled hair. It’s the polish of the 1940’s with a 2000s twist. While our grandmothers piled on the paint to look more glam, we use red lipstick to infuse a little unexpected pop to our a.m. wear.

For those looking to rock out in red Gwen Stefani style, try tarte’s Vitamin Infused lipstick in Vinyasa, which they describe as “siren red.” Wanting a more subtle hint of rouge? Go for tarte’s Rise&Shine lip-stain in Cherry.

So, whether you go all-out glam or keep it more low-key, this summer take a risk with red. Because during these times of recessional heartache, it’s the little things that truly count.
xo,
Amelia

Who is that beautiful girl in the photo with you? Do she cook and clean and never smell like onion rings? -- Lil Boosie

I accept your dare and love that cherry color. I'm doing shopping this weekend and will pick some up. Now that I'm back to being a brunette it will pair puuurfectly! BTW whoever said blondes have more fun was um...wrong!!
