For my age, I should be a lip gloss girl. My hay – day was the late 90s when lip gloss ruled and only your grandmothers wore real lipstick.
However, I love lipstick! I love the texture, the consistency, and of course…nothing beats the smell of lipstick!
So why then don’t I wear it more often??? I must say it has to be the maintenance. I haven’t been willing to take the time for touch ups throughout the day. Also, I kinda feel awkward wearing lipstick with yoga pants and a messy bun.
But this weekend I was invited to hang out with some super cool people at a hotel pool down in Shelter Island in San Diego and one of the gals there was rocking the most amazing red lip with her super cute retro polka dot swimsuit and fabulous wayfarer shades. And she rocked those lips all afternoon poolside. Through eating snacks to drinking cocktails and you know what.. she looks absolutely amazing!!!
So, with her ruby lips as inspiration, I’m doing another 7 Days/7 Ways only this time with lipstick. Follow me on Instagram if you want to see each day’s looks or you can wait until next week when I recap all 7.
I also challenge you to lipstick for 7 days in a row. See how your perspective on life changes. And post them so we can all see the fabulous array of colors and textures out there.
And so without further ado, here is Day One!
Lipstick: 7 Days/7 Ways
Day One: Yoga Flush
Sporting yoga pants and a messy bun after yoga, I decided to go with a nice sheer flush. No lip liner and the lipstick has a sheen to it so no gloss.
What I’m wearing: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Bel – Ami
