Lady In Red: Classic Red Lips and Nails

There's nothing quite like a red lip or red nails.

May the real classic ladies, please stand up. Although, you don't see as many people wearing red anymore -- it will forever be a classic color. Whether it be a red orange or a fire engine red, the color red is simply sexy. You can dress the color up or down and still give off that classy lady vibe without trying too hard.
If you're looking for change and think you might need some red in your life to keep things classy, let me be the first to show you that the color red is still claiming it's title as one of the sexiest colors to ever exist.
Red nails are as classic as they come. I can remember my mom and all my aunt staying with a fresh red manicure back in the day. Something about having red on your nails just screams sexy and sophisticated without going over board. The pinks and nudes might of taken over for a little while, but going the classic route every so often doesn't hurt.
Red lips, who can resist? Everyone is familiar with MAC Cosmetics infamous 'Ruby Woo'. Honestly, Ruby Woo might have put red lipstick back on the map and it doesn't look like it's going anywhere anytime soon. If you're ever feeling like your outfit is missing something, red lipstick is always a great pick me up. It will literally give life to any look and make you look beyond beautiful.
I alllways go for the red mani-pedi. My toenails are dark red right now!
I'm currently craving red nails! This card inspired that feeling.

3 Skin Products That Have Actually Worked for Me
(image: glossier) Are you tired of buying products and seeing a whopping total of zero results? Same, girl. So today I'm going to share a few products that have actually had a noticeable impact on my skin. (image: mom fabulous) 1. RoC Deep Wrinkle Retinol Correction Holy cow guys. This stuff is absolutely magic in a bottle. Retinol in any dosage higher than this can only come with a perscription because it is incredibly strong. Creams with this product, if the dosage is right, practically erase fine (and not so fine) lines. I attacked my crows feet with this cream and I kid you not, I saw improvement and near-elimination of my deepest wrinkle in one week. One week. The little tube is a little pricey but good God does it work! Warning: I used the Day and Night cream religiously and after a few days I noticed that my skin was rather red. The labels warns that this happens and you skin will get used to it, but it persisted for longer than I liked. I stopped for a week, then went to only using the night cream and I haven't had a problem since. Retinol is a serious chemical so don't over-do it! Get your hands on it here! (image: pop sugar) 2. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment The winter weather is not kind to my lips and there is nothing I hate more than that tight, almost sticky-dry feeling you get when your lips are parched. While drinking water helps, I found that this lip treatment not only moisturized my lips but softened them, slightly lessened the lines on my lips, aaaand just as an added bonus, it tastes delicious. I got the color 'Bloom' which is supposed to work for pretty much all skin tones, but check out their collection and find one that works for you! Get your hands on it here! (image: klairs) 3. Klair's Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask This is so sci-fi it's not even funny. The mask has a quality that no matter how much you use it, it will slide back into its previous shape like memory foam. So every time you open the jar it looks brand new. Because of this, when you put the mask on your face is really squeezes into your skin. When I wake up, my skin is literally glowing. Warning: I only use this once and week because I found that if I used it more than once a week I got a small breakout (gone the next day) on my nose. That could have been related to my time of the month, but I didn't want to risk it again, plus you really don't need to use it that often! Get your hands on it here!
