Lesson #1 ~ You Can’t Hide in Red Lipstick
I decided on a whim, of sorts, to do something quite outside-the-box for me as a New Year 2015 Resolution – Wear Red Lipstick every single day of 365 days – #365DaysofRedLipstick #FeelingFieryIn2015.
This would not come easy to me because I had never worn Red Lipstick. Never. Ever.
I feared Red Lipstick for some reason. Maybe I’m not glamorous enough. Maybe the idea that all that RED seemed so Fiery and very difficult to apply. Or maybe I felt so safe with my muted Cafes, Blushes & Shimmers.
Well, safe be damned. Cloak me in RED.
I accomplished this #RedLipstick Resolution each day of January 2015, attempting to use a different RED each day. (Well, that little attempt would not come to fruition because I don’t have a personal Lipstick account to justify 365 days x cost of lipstick = remortgaging my home.)
Anyway, I got in quite a few #ShadesOfRed and learned so much more than a mere Resolution.
I was onto a REVOLUTION – a personal Red Lipstick Revolution of LESSONS.
Lesson #1 ~You Can’t Hide in Red Lipstick
#RedLipstick is there. It’s out there. It precedes your body by 2 inches. At least. Maybe 3 or 5 or 10. It catches the attention of your mirror. It has the power of both STOP & GO — STOP to look because it’s so different, so THERE. And GO because with RED, you almost cannot STOP for too long.
GO. GET OUT THERE — Run in Red. Walk babies in Red. Shovel snow in Red. Run in the rain in Red. Do dates in Red. And games in Red. BE RED-dy for anything…
Get your granddaughters in on the power, the fun, the “out there” of RED!
Laugh. Giggle. Cheer in Red.
Wear Red Pants to match your Red Lipstick…
You can’t hide once you apply.
You simply can’t.
Because Red Becomes You.
Now I’m onto February.
And plenty more #RedLipstickLessons!
