I can still remember just over a year ago purchasing my first lipstick: Mac’s Matte Russian Red. I was so excited to wear it that I just slapped the product on hoping for the best. Needless to say, it was a mess and I learned quite quickly the importance of lip liner and proper application techniques. It took a few tries to figure out how to properly apply the bright, vibrant colour, but I got it and haven’t looked back since.
What amazed me most was how confident I felt wearing this colour. Between my fair skin, blonde hair, and heavy glasses, it was a bold statement. And I loved it. I smiled more, looked down less, and have accomplished more than I could have ever imagined in one short year. I’m not saying lipstick has changed my life, but it has certainly helped turn me into a much more confident, and independent person.
While I can’t promise lipstick will bring you the same confidence it has to me, I am here to share my passion, and love of lipstick with you. I am here to share the tips I’ve learned, the shades I love, and some other fun facts along the way. If in doing so I can encourage you to put on a daring shade with pride as you walk out the front door, then I’d say my goal is accomplished.
