Every morning I can feel the crisp autumn air signalling that winter is just around the corner. While I remain partially in denial (SUMMER, WHY CAN’T YOU STAY FOREVER?!), I can’t avoid the inevitable. As such, my mental preparation for cooler temperatures has begun and right now I’m looking forward to the return of plum lipstick in my everyday makeup bag. My favourites: MAC Media, MAC Plum Bright, MAC Prince Noir, & Revlon Black Cherry.
My friend and I were talking about this the other day and we came to the conclusion that dark lipstick is only for special occasions because it brings much unwanted attention. Why can’t we just wear our dark lipstick in peace?! Fashion girls, I know you feel me: if you look even just a liiiittle over-dressed (e.g. wearing heels in casual settings, or rocking that bold accessory) you get the stares! But it’s always those small details that instantly pull your look together, giving you that extra boost of confidence to conquer the day.
So you know what, go forth and be a radiant, confident, young woman. To quote one of my all-time favourite youtube videos, “don’t be insecure girl. OWN that ponytail. WORK THAT UPDO.”
