You know when you have those days when your just not feeling it. That feeling where your pretty meter is running low no matter what you wear or how you do your hair. Even if it’s the exact same outfit and makeup you were rockin last week when you know you looked like the definition of Yonce. It happens to the best of us.
But I got the trick, it’s so simple. Lipstick! Specifically matte reds and pinks. The brighter the better! Honestly in my makeup bag I have a good handful of gorg bright lipsticks that are my go to’s. As soon as I feel blah and if eyeliner doesn’t do the trick, I whip it out. Now I know some of you may be saying welllllll lipstick doesn’t suit me, or bright colours isn’t really my thing, or I don’t have very big lips to work it, well I’m here to tell you EVERYONE can. Whether it’s for a romantic night out or to check the mailbox, if it’s that kind of day… Do it! With a little bit of confidence you can do it. Obviously the first time, you may see your reflection in the mirror and say hellll nawwwww but leave it on, don’t head for the toilet paper right away. Walk around the house, watch some tv, read some paritaTIME and then head back to the mirror. You have to give yourself some time to adjust. I remember the first time I wore a bright lipstick I felt like everyone was staring at me and not in a good way. But that’s just your boring inner self trying to ruin your lipstick experience. Ignore it! Trust me, once you get over the first couple of times wearing it, Bob will be your uncle!
Here are some of my fav MAC colours:

Now go pucker up!
