Aussie stars unite for a good cause

Sarah Carty

We never really need another excuse to rock a red lip but we’re even more into it when it’s for a good cause – and especially on International Women’s Day.

Now a range of inspirational Australian women have banded together to support the new Elizabeth Arden March On campaign which aims to raise money for the UN Women committee.

Stars like Anna Heinrich, Kylie Gillies and Julie Snook have all taken to their Instagram accounts to show off their pout-worthy lipstick, where 100 per cent of proceeds will go to the charity.

In the social media snaps, each of the women are wearing white shirts and the bright red ‘Red Door’ shade of lipstick.

The lipstick symbolises a stand of solidarity, after Elizabeth Arden herself handed out red lipstick to the suffragettes when they marched in 1912.

The UN Women committee aims to protect women’s right and promote gender equality.

Over the pond in the U.S., Reese Witherspoon is the main woman supporting the campaign.

“There is real strength and camaraderie in March On and the feeling that we are in this together,” Reese said in a statement.
