Raspberry red lips can invoke a special kind of confidence and daring style. Stars like Scarlett Johansson and Zendaya have also opted for the look of raspberry red lips to enhance their vibrant look. For Scarlett, it was a touch of soft raspberry red that she teamed up with a classic black ensemble. As for Zendaya, she chose a deep raspberry red colour that worked well with her dark fitted dress and silver hoop earrings.
There is just so much to do with a simple statement lip! For a bolder vibe, you can always pair raspberry red with bright colors on your eyes. A graphic eyeliner in colors such as yellow, green, or light blue is one easy road to that look. Compliment the raspberry lips with lighter, cooler shades, such as pinks and purples, for an overall look that is both fresh and understated.
No matter what kind of look you embrace, raspberry red lips have a certain kind of flair and can look great no matter what you want to pair the lipstick with. It’s a look that is versatile and can be adopted in a unique way to suit your own individual style.
