Why Wearing Red Lipstick Makes You Sexier

Red lipstick

Red lipstick has long been marketed as a cosmetic item used to increase sexual appeal, but does wearing it actually make you more attractive?

Cosmetic historian, Gabriela Hernandez, explains that, "Red also livens up the face, calls attention to itself and will always have a deep connection to sex since arousal is usually associated with blushing."

The color red sparks deep connections in our brains that causes us to see those wearing the color as a potential mate.

The color red is also associated with good health, youthfulness, and reminds us of the tones of nipples, lips, and genitals.

So yes, red lipstick makes you scientifically more attractive to the eye.
