Red lipstick can be daunting to apply for everyday wear. Most girls think that the edgy and elegant shade should be reserved for either glam occasions or nights out. But, there are ways to pull off ruby lips for less dressy days.

After all, there's nothing like a red lip to make us feel more confident and empowered—be it on a date or even a regular workday!

For wearable reds, try L'Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lip Tint (P399). The collection has a soft, lightweight formula, which slips on like satin, sets like velvet, and stays in place all day. These lippies deliver a stain-like feel with the color impact of a liquid lipstick. Pro tip: Swipe on a light coat and blot with tissue to take down the pigmentation a notch.

At an important meeting

A single swipe of lipstick can boost your confidence. If you need that extra nudge when making an important presentation, pair your power suit with a rich, blue-based red. Aside from making you feel more mature and capable, this shade also makes your teeth look whiter—nothing says “I’ve got this” more than a big, self-assured smile!

A weekend sesh with your best gal pals is the best time to leave off pinks and nudes and bust out a deep red shade. After all, nobody else will understand your need to experiment with lip colors better than your girlfriends. Pair berry red lips with a cat-eye and a bright top.

On a mid-day date

So you’re finally having coffee with that cute guy you’ve been chatting with—and you’re feeling anxious. Shake off the nerves by dabbing on a pinkish-red lippie that’s still bold, but not as intimidating. A hint of highlighter on your cheeks, a few coats of mascara, and a pair of block-heeled sandals all go a long way into making you feel more confident!
