Spanish Inspired Red Lip Look

Spanish Inspired Red Lip Look

Maybe it’s the fact I used to live in South America..or maybe that I have a secret obsession with flamenco and tango dancers..or maybe it’s just that every now and then you want to recognize your deepest inner woman and nothing does that quiet lip a badass, bold red lip…


The Inspiration Behind the Look

This look was inspired by all three of these ideas! I did used to live in South America (hola to mis Castellanos de Argentina!) and Spanish culture has always tugged at my heartstrings. Flamenco dancing is a huge part of Spanish culture and although I’ve taken a random lesson here and there, what always grabs my attention most about this art form is the women who dance it. These creatures covered in ruffles or a solid bell sleeve with a serious yet subtle smoky eye and, a lot of times, a bright red lipstick. The sensual way these women move on top of their sexy looks..to me it just screams, WOMAN.

And WOMAN is exactly what I was going for here..so I threw on an OTS Flamenco inspired top complete with ruffles and bell sleeves, added some earrings with movement and started in on a that sexy, subtle smokey eye and those “can’t miss me” red lips and this is the look I ended up with..
