Whip Hand Cosmetics Teams with How to be a Redhead to Create Lip Palettes Exclusively for Redheads
New York, NY and Detroit, MI March 07, 2013 — Over the past ten years, natural born redheads and founders of How to be a Redhead, Adrienne and Stephanie Vendetti, have explored all shades of lip color in search of hues to complement their hard to match complexions. When their experience met the experts of Whip Hand Cosmetics the result is revolutionary: Redhead friendly lip products that promote confidence and beauty.
“Redheads have traditionally been an under-served group whenit comes to cosmetics,” says Riese Lauriat, founder and chief makeup artist at Whip Hand Cosmetics, “We wanted to present a line of products that makes it easy for women with red hair to find their perfect shade.”
With the help of the Vendetti sisters, Whip Hand Cosmetics designed two lip palettes completely inspired by redheads. The daytime look, EmpoweRED™, features cool toned lip crèmes, while GlamouRED™ is a warm creme collection to prep lips for a night on the town. Each palette comes with four lip cremes to give redheads a choice depending on their mood and occasion.
Adrienne Vendetti of How to be a Redhead says, “What’s different about these lip palettes is that they empower and beautify redheads at the same time!”
Each lip palette comes with a premium Stilazzi travel lip brush for application. The lip palette retails for $49. Palettes will premiere at Rock it Like a Redhead, How to be a Redhead’s first live beauty and fashion event for Redheads on March 16, 2013. A discounted rate will be offered to event attendees.

The Whip Hand Cosmetics Team headed to The M@dison Building in Downtown Detroit (selected as one of the “The World’s Coolest Offices” by INC Magazine) to shoot our “super-secret” campaign for “How To Be A Redhead.”
While we can’t disclose just yet why we were doing the shoot and what it’s for, you’ll find out soon enough.
The campaign features the fabulous Detroit model Kelly Kirstein shot by Detroit fashion photographer Laur Nash. Photographer Andrew Fang was kind enough to join us all day to shoot the critical video footage that will accompany the still photography in the campaign.
