A story of the colour red. As it should be…
In the beginning there was red.
In the colors of the earth,
in the beating heart.
Red for boldness,
a color that’s earned.
A cardinal rule.
Red is for life.
My sweeties, what does the colour red mean to you? Love? Warmth? Fire? Or do you have something else in mind when you think of this colour? The most exciting thing is, that red means something different in every culture and country and there are so many examples for that. Actually, no wonder since red is everywhere and so close underneath our blue and green earth, there is red lava everywhere.
But for me, red is something else as well… think about beauty.
Because red lips, to me, simply mean seduction, audacity, glamour and irresistibility. Full, red lips symbolize youth and beauty to me, sensibility and complete perfection. In all their nuances, red lips have the power to seduce, to seem playful, young and lovable or crazy and wild. All that is what red lips can do…
My favourite beauty brand Shiseido now invented Rouge Rouge*, a collection of 16 real reds that I had the chance to test, play with and become creative with them. And this series of pictures is what came out of it. My favourite nuances, my reds. From a light nude over a rich pink towards the perfect coral red and dark violet, there is everything you could ever ask for. So follow me down to discover my nuances… my Rouge Rouge.
How do you like these pictures in which we played a bit with side light? And also, have you already decided which red will be yours? Do let me know in the comments!
