Lipstick For Cowards…
In the past you would never catch me dead wearing lipstick.
Of late I have really started to explore beauty products a bit more, getting pretty comfortable with experimenting.
Naturally with anything that is self taught there is going to be some trials, tribulations and epic failures. But I continue to persevere and watch a lot of You Tube videos. We can all learn from each other.
Each video had a vloggers preaching about the benefits of perfect lip liners, lip primers and lipstick shades. Who knew it was this complicated?
Certainly not me.
True life I could see the hard work it takes to get a flawless lipstick pout. No shade, I still couldn’t help but think to myself, ‘ain’t nobody got time for all that’.
I think by now we have established that on any given work day I can barely get ready and out the door in time as it is - now you want me to draw a perfect line around the edges of my mouth, apply a generous amount of lip primer within the lines, then apply first coat of lipstick. After that I need to let the lipstick colour soak on my lips, then bloat the lipstick only to reapply final coat - REALLY?
*Screws up face to the point my vision is blurred*
Until i feel the need to follow the above steps, I am going to continue applying my lipstick straight raw dawg. I can live without the fuss, and still be happy with the end result.
I have to say there is something about applying a delicious lipstick shade, it has a way of making you feel oh so sexy and grown.
