The other day I was just about to throw the hair up in a bun and leave the house without a touch of makeup. But something pulled me back into my room to – at least – apply a coat of mascara. After doing that, I figured I was already in front of the mirror so why not wear a bit of lipstick? Presto! I instantly felt much better! Although I had a day of errands in front of me, I felt lifted, feminine and ready to take on the day. There’s something powerful about the act of caring for yourself, whether it’s the simple act of curling your lashes or adding a touch of color to your lips. My lip color of choice is Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet. It’s the perfect shade of red you can wear day or night. The color livens up my face and mood in minutes. I know I’m not alone when it comes to lipstick having a transformation effect. I asked several fabulous bloggers and makeup buffs what was their favorite shade of lipstick and how it makes them feel when they wear it! Here’s an homage to the power of lipstick.
