Today has been a shitty day, but I managed to conquer it with the number one weapon in my arsenal – A RED LIPSTICK. I don’t think there’s any other type of make-up that makes me feel as strong as a kickass red lip and sometimes, you’ve just got to drag yourself out of bed and put your war paint on.
Loads of people have said to me ‘I don’t feel confident enough to wear red’ or ‘red lipstick won’t suit me’ – NO! I genuinely believe that there’s a red lipstick for everyone, bloody hell, sounds like we’re talking about ‘soul mates’ here, but with lipstick, we may as well be. I believe in red lipstick suiting everyone as strongly as I believe that all men look good in a blue shirt – something that no one has yet proved wrong – fellas, take my advice on this one;)
It’s just about finding a red that suits you, or one that you love and feel comfortable in, whether people think it suits you or not – to hell with them, it’s your time to SLAY. Whether it’s a bright red or a red wine type job, there are so many different options out there and it really can be quite fun to try them all out! You don’t even have to go for an expensive one, I know that Rimmel do amazing reds. My all time favourite is ‘Retro Red’ by Bobbi Brown – I bought it for myself pre-exams to sass my way through.
Although I’m bigging it up here, a red lipstick obviously won’t solve your problems, but it sure as hell might make them easier to face if you feel bold and sassy. In the brilliant words of Elizabeth Taylor, and also something my best friend regularly texts me, ‘Put on some lipstick and pull yourself together’… And if you really don’t want to wear red lipstick, you’re as gorgeous as any of us who do.
Rock a red lip, you can do it.
Stacks of love,
