Red is not my colour, but I have to admit that I am slowly appreciating the power of this shade and the fact, that it goes marvellously with red lipstick. Scarlet, crimson, cherry, rust, ruby. It’s a primary colour, but it’s also the most primal. No other colour is so rich in symbolism. It’s fire and passion, anger and sin. Going into the red means you’re in debt, but in China, red is associated with good luck and prosperity. It’s communist and Republican at the same time. It’s the colour of blood, of danger, of lust. Throw in Coca-Cola and Santa Claus, and you have a hue that means a lot of things to a lot of people. For me red is passion, it’s the chance for a new beginning, it’s fire, love and prosperity, it’s strength and my personal desire to start something new and try roads are still sleepy and hidden. Well, it’s February, so I can still do it!
