What I’m getting ready to type may be the most cliche thing I’ve ever written … When I turned 30 years old I finally felt like I could be myself and do things I was afraid to do, like wearing red lipstick. Silly but true. I never wanted to stand out and I felt tremendously self-conscience till I accepted myself and embraced the red lipstick look.
As a “beauty blogger” I think readers may think I’m completely confident in all physical beauty aspects or that I have a narcissistic personality. Well, I can assure you, I am not perfect and I am an introvert in social situations but can put my heart, thoughts and feelings out when writing. So I write.
I like both ideas. I try my hardest at the first one and when I’m in doubt I now rock my favorite red lipstick.
As a VIB Rouge client at Sephora I received the BITE – mini VIB Rouge Creme lipstick and the Sugar Rose Tint lip balm. The lip glosses pictured were not used in the image above. However, they would be great for a girls night out.
To loop back around to the beginning of this post … Don’t wait as long as I did, be confident at any age. Be confident now. Wear your red lipstick.
Mantra today: Look in the mirror and put on your red lipstick. Get out into the wild world we all live in and proceed as if success is inevitable because it truly is when YOU believe in YOURSELF.
