Link red to passion because red is the color we exhibit on our skin when interested, a red flush or blush. Rather than having your outfit scream kitten, unless that is what you are going for, the best way to rock this passion producing color and get into a frame of mind is by carrying a red clutch, donning a bright red polish on your nails, try Essie Well Red, or lining your lips in the right red.
