Go Red! Get Noticed!
Today I was reading an article on Yahoo or AOL that directed me to the rest of the article on Cosmopolitan.com about ten things you don’t know about attraction. I think it was even called that. Sorry I didn’t note the source but I never thought I’d really think another thing about it other than a giggle or two to share with a girlfriend.
But later in the day I got to thinking about one of the things it said. It was something along the lines of the woman dressed in red is the one that men will be attracted to most in the room or bar or wherever the two came to cross paths. I’ve always figured that because it just sort of seems innate to be most attractive in red. I don’t know why…but I too have always thought that, but have never found a red dress that looked good on me, but I have always wanted one.
The article said that the reason men are attracted to red is because of cultural things they’ve grown up associating red to romance such as Valentine’s Day. To me, I think it’s just hot and they like it…but then again I’m no psychologist.
But it did pique my interest being that I’m a single girl and I’ve kind of had my antennae up lately for romance. However, I knew (although I did search my closets just in case) that I had no red anything. But then I got to thinking…hey…I have no red dress or clothes but I do have red lipstick and nail polish. It made me ponder if that would work just as well. The problem is I feel kind of scary when I look at myself with red lipstick on…kind of hard. I’m like too blonde or fair or something…not sure…but it hasn’t been all that attractive when I’ve tried the color in the past.
So today my mission was to find a red that would look good on my lips as well as my fingers and toes! Below are the shades of reds that I found. I’d love for you all to tell me any scoop you have on cute red cosmetics, clothes, shoes or accessories and share them with us. I’m willing to try. But in the meantime here’s what I have found. They are all stunning and I can’t wait to try them out!
