I used to be afraid of red lipstick. I wore it on New Year’s Eve in 2011 (well I guess it was still 2010, but you get it), and it was just a mess and a half. So I thought I learned my lesson….just don’t wear it.
I’ve experimented with other lipsticks – purples, pinks, nudes – so I’m not completely lipstick challenged. But come on. The perfect Red lip can be SCAAAAARY.
…unless you’re Emma Stone. Because girlfriend can rock the perfect red lip like no other.
But then I saw Krista’s Snapchat one day, went out, bought lip liner from Bare Minerals and lipstick from NARS (PS: I’m starting to swear by the NARS matte lip pencils.) Although I felt silly at first, I kind of liked it. My perfect red lip was different. So I found myself wearing it more and more.
The perfect red lip definitely adds a kick to any look you wear. Makes you feel edgy (kind of like how I felt in this post). And what do you do when you’re feeling edgy? Wear something that you would never picture yourself wearing. Enter: These shorts. And then throw on some crazy killer heels.
Me? In acid wash boyfriend shorts? Maybe this is the SoulCycle giving me a whole lot of confidence (down 5 pounds!!!), but I’m a little less shy about wearing shorts in public *insert wide eye emoji*
