It may just be the season, hello V-Day, but we love the bursts of pink and flashes of red suddenly popping up on every sidewalk in New York City. Whether you’re in the mood for love, or you just want to shake off the dark, dull colors of winter, sporting a key fashion piece from the rose to rouge color spectrum is must this February. And really, is there a better month to pair a fuchsia purse or a pair of candy apple sunnies with beautifully flushed cheeks or a bright red pout? More >
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.
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.
