Day two of the 30 day challenge is DONE! Go me!
And now I’m going to spend a little bit of time talking about some changes I’m implementing in my life. As I’ve said in past posts, I’ve started wearing lipstick more often. And, in fact, I have now started wearing RED lipstick more often. I really want to be the kind of woman who can pull off red lips. I already have bright orange red hair, and I’ve been told more than once that my wardrobe is not normal. I embrace this about me. In fact, I noticed that the way I dress has become kind of lax, so I’ve been making more of an effort to look put together. I cannot WAIT until scarf season is once again upon us. And now that I have my boots, I feel quite sophisticated. I’ve become truly inspired to make sure that every day, I look like I’ve put effort into how I look. I am growing out my hair, and I’ve started curling it so that it doesn’t just lay there limply.
So, wearing red lipstick will just take this a couple steps further. There’s something about wearing red lipstick that puts forth an energy of confidence. And there’s no way I can skip make-up if I know I’m going to be sliding on some red lips, you know?
I love the direction my life is heading. I often struggle with anxiety and depression, but when I wear the red lipstick, I find myself smiling more often. I interact with people more. I don’t try and hide. And I like that.
What I’d really like is to find that deeeeeeeeep red matte shade that was worn by almost every woman everywhere in the 50’s. If you know of a good one, let me know.
And yes, day two of the challenge was also completed with the red lips.
