I think I say this every year, but maybe 2015 will be the year I finally start wearing lipstick… Even better, maybe over the holidays? I don’t think this bump can handle much attention-seeking sparkle or flair this year; but, my lips? They might be the one thing on my body that hasn’t gotten bigger (of course) yet. 😉
Truth be told, I’m scared to death of lipstick. Once, my mom told me she would buy me a pair of sunglasses from a fancy department store if I let her put lipstick on me at the make-up counter and left it on all day. I let her because – sunglasses. But, that was pretty much the end of my relationship with lipstick.
I LOVE the way it looks on other people though – especially other people that happen to also have dark hair, fair skin, and, some of them, even freckles. I think there is something so classic and beautiful looking about a woman with very natural makeup and bright lips. Still though, it feels like such a big change to me – like people that know me would be all “whoa” if I all the sudden started wearing lipstick.
Maybe one day my circumstances will change and I’ll have a fresh start to reinvent myself as the woman who wears glasses (I might have been known to pray for some failed vision) and bright red lipstick…
Until then, here are some of my “inspiration photos” from Pinterest:
Do you wear bright red lipstick? Would you? I’d love to hear your tips for a very-hesitant beginner…
P.S. Do you follow me on Pinterest?! I’ve been using it a lot lately to record ideas for the holidays, for new baby, recipes, etc. etc. I’d love to have you join me there too!
