If you’re looking for clues to a woman’s personality, then read her lips.
A study has found that all those clichés about lipstick color really do hold true.
Women who paint their lips red do so because they are full of self-confidence, or intend to appear so. Those who choose a darker red are feeling sexy and sensuous, and a slick of pale pink means that a woman has a fantastic love life and is happy. Bare lips, on the other hand, signal that a woman is lacking confidence and feeling less attractive.
Seven out of ten of the 3,000 women polled said they usually chose their lipstick to match the way they were feeling. But almost three quarters also said that using a different color could actually help change their mood.
‘By applying red lipstick women instantly feel more confident, sexy and in control – which could be why the women who wear the shade are more likely to succeed in their career too.
Wearing lipstick is a quick and affordable way for women to draw attention to their lips, making them feel more attractive and instantly inject a bit of glamour. Also altering the shade of lipstick worn can totally change a woman’s look.’
The survey confirmed that more than half use lipstick as a pick-me-up, with 55 per cent saying it cheered them up if they applied some while they felt down. It also suggests that applying a certain shade of lip color can totally change the way a woman feels.
