Hot Trend: Red Lips

Red lips are a classic look that's really hot right now, but use caution- It's very easy to get your red all wrong and end up looking like a reject from cosmetology school. Case in point: Christina Aguilera.

Christina has been making the paparazzi circuit 24-7 lately, generally with her poor son in tow, and her garish look is driving me crazy. The has-been diva's perpetually red lips complete the clown effect she creates with way too much eye makeup, orange foundation, and platinum blonde hair. YUCK.

The basic rule with red lipstick is that if you're going to do it, tone everything else down. Go low key with your hair and eye makeup. And if you're a platinum blonde, just avoid the red lipstick altogether unless you just really want to be mistaken for a hooker.
