There is a shade of red for every woman
Audrey Hepburn said “there is a shade of red for every woman”. How right she was and still is. To Taylor Swift, “Red is on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation, passion. On the other end, you’ve got obsession, danger, fear, anger, and frustration.”
The color red catches everyone’s eyes. Because red has so many meanings: love, passion, courage, danger, anger, rage, good luck, happiness, wealth, romance, and especially, attraction.
Surprisingly, studies have shown that men perceive women who wear red on dating profiles as both sexier and more open to a sexual encounter. A study conducted by two German psychologists Sascha Schwarz and Marie Singer found that men choose to sit closer to a woman wears a red T-shirt than a woman in blue. Another previous study found women wearing red in a bar were more approached by men.
However, wearing red doesn’t merely for attracting. You can wear red to show your confidence, power and happiness. Plus, red lipsticks can update your look immediately. And don’t worry, there is always a shade of red lipstick that can go perfectly with your complexion, makeup, hair and budget.
