Many people love the color red for its bold, intense look. Since it's such a bright and eye-catching color, it's often associated with sexuality and passion. According to Bustle, wearing red makes everyone appear more attractive, and people who prefer this color over any other color are "sexually charged, and want to make a lasting impression."

Since red is associated with attractiveness and lust, it can never hurt to add a few more red pieces to your wardrobe. Whether you prefer bright blood red, deep burgundy, vibrant red-orange, or a rosy hue with more pink undertones, there's a perfect shade out there for everyone. So, how else can you add some red to your look besides clothes? Elegant red makeup! Applying makeup is an excellent way to express yourself. There are plenty of ways to incorporate red into your makeup routine whether you are going to work, on a romantic date, or dancing the night away with friends. 

One of the easiest ways to add red to your makeup is through your lips. Who can resist a classic red lip? Lipstick is often portrayed as sexy and glamorous, so you can never go wrong with red lipstick if you want to look like a movie star.
