“Even though we can't step into a time capsule and travel back to the 40's or 50's, we can start creating worlds within our world.”
This California gal is the author of the new blog “MissRedLips.” Besides her love for vintage movies, decorating and dark chocolates. She is a licensed cosmetologist, who loves to wear red lipstick. Read on about how wearing red lipstick has effected her life and her confidence.
Mrs. Red Lips lives in California wine country, where she is surrounded by the beautiful scenery and fine wine. She is a licensed cosmetologist who works for a cosmetic line full-time. She is also a full-time doggie mom of her two baby Shih-Tzus!
She enjoys many hobbies besides hairstyling and makeup artistry. Mrs. Red Lips loves attending vintage events, cooking, reading, blogging, watching I Love Lucy, vintage movies, shopping for unique vintage hair accessories and jewelry, decorating, dark chocolate, wine tasting, going to great comedy clubs, fine dining with Mr. Red Lips, going for walks with her puppies, and finding new red lipstick colors to try out.
She explained why she started her MissRedLips blog.
“When there is nobody in your life who shares a passion for retro things the first place you go for support and inspiration is the web, right? Well I wanted to start my blog to connect with other woman who enjoy the same things I do. That way we can learn and share our knowledge and have a place to connect with others around the world.”
Another reason why she also started MissRedLips blog, was because she truly believes that even though we can't step into a time capsule and travel back to the 40's or 50's, we can start creating worlds within our world. “I wanted my blog to be a world of glamour so you can escape out of the modern world for a little bit of time”, she added.
We asked her what made her choose the title MissRedLips for her blog.
“Personally, I didn't find my own glamour until I put on red lipstick for the first time. It literally changed my life and the way I viewed myself!” That was when she realized how women who wore red lipstick felt confident, beautiful, and glamorous! She started receiving tons of compliments every time she put on her red lips.
Many women would tell Mrs. Red Lips how they wish they could wear red lipstick too, but that they didn't have the confidence to “pull the red lip look off.”
“At first it seemed silly to think that lipstick could actually change your confidence and how people view you, but it really does! So my goal is to share what wearing red lipstick has done for me and how it's effected my life. Also, to encourage women to take control of their happiness. Create the life you want, even if it may not be what's 'in style' right now. I don't care when red lipstick is the trend or when it's not, because it's always going to be in style for me.”
In her MissRedLips blog, she features everything on how to apply great red lips, tips on etiquette, vintage hair techniques, cooking, her own styles from day to day, and much more. “Red lipstick is just my personal symbol for vintage and retro things I adore, but I feature much more besides posts concerning lipstick.”
Her passion for vintage started when she was about ten years old and started watching I Love Lucy. “I started collecting memorabilia from the show in antique shops with my grandparents. I was always fascinated by the hairstyles and clothing I saw. I loved how the characters spoke and how everything seemed less stressful than the lives many of us lead today.”
Mrs. Red Lips started her passion for red lipstick also when she was very young, about 6 years old. She started taking jazz, tap, and ballet classes when she was four years old. "Each year I would be in a recital. It was required for all the girls to have on blush and red lipstick with our costumes. I loved when my mom put the makeup on me. I started asking her everyday if she could put it on me again, but she told me it was only for recital days. So looking back now, I guess I was destined to have a blog titled MissRedLips!”
Mrs. Red Lips listed for us her likes and dislikes of the modern world.
“I like all the conveniences we have and instant gratification that's available. I don't like how stressed everyone seems to be and how balance is lacking in a lot of our lives. I'm old fashioned in the sense I believe one parent should take care of the children. I think parenting skills have gone out the window. I don't like how rude many people are. I wish we could once again embrace manners and etiquette. I love cell phones for many practical reasons. I'm also thankful for all the advances in healthcare and science. I don't like a lot of the clothing in the modern world. This list could be never ending!”
She said that she isn’t a Timewarpian. She said that she likes to take the best of both worlds and make it her own to best fit her lifestyle. Her favorite vintage style is of the 40's and early 50's. She also loves watching old movies and listening to Doris Day! “That is my escape into another world!”
When asked to describes herself, Mrs. Red Lips said, “Bringing back the glamour of decades gone by while keeping up with the modern world, and doing it all with my red lipstick on.”
