To those who don’t understand makeup, it may sound extremely shallow when I say this, but lipstick has been one the biggest confidence boosters of my life. I’ve always been a shy child. In Elementary School, I’d cry if someone said hi to me (true story). In Middle School, I was so scared of being judged for who I am that I was rude as hell to keep people away. And then by the time I was in High School and started to grow into myself, we moved so many times that even trying to make friends seemed illogical (plus I was still kind of loud and annoying).
Now, before you jump to conclusions about my hermit status, it’s not that I’m anti-social or never sought acceptance from my peers (that’s another post for another day), I’ve just always been a chicken. Well, until makeup happened, because when I wear a bright red lipstick, I know there is no hiding. I know that when I have a vibrant peach on my lips, I’m going to walk into a room and be noticed. Don’t get me wrong, it still scares me (once a chicken, always a chicken)… but now I’m a chicken with a bold lip 😉

That’s it for today my loves! I hope you have found this post inspiring and I encourage you to live a little and push that comfort zone! Remember, you don’t have to be rich to buy good makeup (and you don’t have to be a model to rock the shit out of a bold lip and some kick-ass heals)!
