Code Red




The color red is making a grand entrance in Fall 2017.  The fiery tone signifies love, passion and sometimes anger while conveying strength and confidence.  Red is the "it" hue that everyone needs to embrace for showstopping moments.  I, for one, love the color red and tend towards a blue red to match skin my tone.  If your skin has a pink undertone choose blue reds and if you have a yellow undertone then select orange reds.  The next step is to own a few pieces in this glorious hue and finish with a swipe of beautiful and bold lipstick.   Yes, fall is here and it is time to put away shorts, bathing suits, tee shirts and replenish the wardrobe with turtlenecks, slacks, boots and anything red.  Fall 2017 is Code Red.
