Red Lipstick For Day Wear?

I have been really enjoying wearing bright red lipstick recently; I don't go out in the evenings very often so I haven't really worn my red lipstick much because I was always too afraid it was an evening thing, but I started wearing it in the day time. This brought up the question: is red lipstick inappropriate for day time wear?

People seem to have a mixed opinion on this, but in the end I think it depends on how you wear it.

If you are going to wear red lipstick then maybe don't wear so much eye make up just a little bit of eye liner or subtle colours of eye shadow and mascara. This morning I was applying huge winged eye liner but then I made the wings much smaller to allow for the bright lips.

The more red a shade of lipstick is the brighter it looks so buying a bluer one can make a difference,  another thing which will make it more subtle is choosing a sheer one, or one that is more of a tint.

I think that if you like it, and feel confidant wearing it, then it will look brilliant and bold.
