Red Lipstick = Instant Confidence!

I am blonde, and I have always adored high fashion. Buying my first red lipstick was the step into womanhood for me.
My stepmom always told me to take it off, that 14 was too young for red lipstick. But I didn't look 14. I soon began searching for the perfect shade of lipstick, and once found, it was worn on a semi regular basis (I was sure to switch it up with some pinks and nudes.)
Wearing red lipstick draws attention to your lips, and when you wear it right, it is a showstopper. I always pair it with black and white outfits, for that extra pizzaz.
I had girls tell me how envious they were that I could pull it off. The truth is, they could definitly rock it too, but they were afraid.
Red lipstick is instant confidence.
Loved your post and I so agree.
Never really thought of red lipstick as a 'first step in womanhood' but yes, it certainly is.
And yes, most women can wear a shade (has to be the right shade for them) of red lipstick. It does make an impact and one does feel so confident.
