If there’s one celebrity I look forward to seeing strut the red carpet, it’s rising star Rita Ora. Her attitude is refreshingly irreverent, and so is her style. As a huge fan of crimson lipstick, I loved that Rita rocked bold red lips on Sunday night at the MTV European Music Awards. I often use red lipstick to brighten up my shadowy fall wardrobe, but Rita’s head-to-toe crimson look inspired me to double down on red.

When I came into work yesterday, I noticed that I wasn’t the only Birchbox staffer following Rita’s lead, too. Red provides the perfect complexion pick-me-up for those of us with darker skin. But as you can see it also works wonders for fair ladies, electrifying blue and green eyes.
What do you think of matching a red lipstick with a red outfit? Too monochromatic? Or the perfect way to amp up a fiery holiday frock?
