You don't need to be a makeup junkie in order to know how important a tube of red lipstick is to a girl's life. It’s the beauty department's version of a little black dress. No matter the season, you can be sure that it'll never go out of style. More importantly though, a red lippie is your BFF, one you can conveniently carry around inside your pocket if you’re ever in need of an instant pick-me-upper.
Below, the many different scenarios where a swipe of red will come in handy.
1 On lazy days, when you're simply not up to doing your makeup.
Because, really, a pop of red will do the trick.
2 Or when you have a lot of time to spare.
Filled-in brows, a top bun, and the whole shebang. Red puckers would most definitely look divine with a winged eye flick, too!
3 When you need an instant confidence booster.
If you ever run out of inspirational quotes to share, nothing says "you can do it!" better than a punchy red lip.
4 When you're feeling as pretty as Queen Bey.
Who run the world? Girls.
5 When you want to impress your guy.
Show off those pearly whites and flash him your hundred-megawatt smile.
6 When all you have is time for a quick retouch.
Don't keep your date waiting for too long. A bold red pout can instantly brighten up your face.
7 When you want to leave a strong, lasting impression.
It could very well be the cherry on top of your super cute outfit.
8 When you're still not over your ex.
Quit whining, stop crying, and just pucker up. At least you'll look pretty, even when it hurts.
9 And when you're finally ready to move on.
He was such a fool to let you go and not realize your worth, so show him that he's made a huge mistake. Looking good, after all, is the sweetest revenge.
