    Both are red. So long as the shades are close, then that should be
    both a no brainer, and a non issue.

    If it's done right then sure! Obviously if you're wearing a blue-ish red dress with an orange-y red lipstick, that'll look pretty bad; but if they work well together, why not?:)

    However the shade of red should match. That might just be my own pet peeve though.

    To me I look to my husband as to whether it is a fashion do or don't. He goes wild with red lips with red dress! Could care less what an "expert" says....

    Fine, as long as it's the right shade of red to go with your skin tone.

    Whatever! Wear what feels right I hate the fashion gestapo. who cares what people look like as long it is respectful. Can we now focus on other things?

    Matching is a good idea, finding contrast is great too but you can't fail when it comes to matching.

    Anything is ok for Rihanna to do--red lipsticks with red hair and red dress! Why not? That is what show business is about--flaunting and loving it

    Only Blue or Mauve should be worn.

    If she's happy, I'm happy. I'm sure she smiles all the way to the bank in her red dress and red lipstick.

    unless you have a darker complexion, not for those who are fair!

    There isn't one shade of red lipstick.There are different shades of red lipstick with different undertones for different completions. I have a dark completion and the best lipstick for me to wear is the kind with blue undertones.

    Well, obviously. If you're going to wear lipstick with a red dress, what color are you going to wear, purple?

    If you can pull it off, go for it. I'll be honest i never really noticed Rihanna before the night of the Grammy's, but she was smoking hot when they showed her at one point in the show. I though, "Wow! She's hot, how come I never noticed that one???"

    But of course. It is very stylish to have red lips with a red dress. Just keep the eye make up and cheek color muted. One must feel confident when wearing red otherwise the whole looks do not work.

    I don't see the harm, as long as the lipstick is a matte red, not shiny and offset with minimal makeup on the eyelids.

    Red lipstick on a woman means go. In traffic it means don't go. I'd rather go.

    Certainly looks better than pink or orange lipstick with a red dress.
  • LitlMomma Edie 2013/02/14 03:54:15
    Well... You could go with a nude or pale color or even a brownish or burgundy but I totally agree with you.

    If you put enough make up with a good wig most everyone can look good.
