Lipstick in Lockdown; Is There Any Point?!
One thing I see being talked about over the various lockdowns is lipstick. Is there any point wearing it? If we do wear it, are we really wearing it for men if they can't see it (answer: absolutely not.)
I absolutely think we should still be wearing lipstick. Whenever I need to get my mood up, I love popping on a bit of lipstick to add some colour to my day. Some days I'll go all out and add eyeliner, but I love just wearing mascara and making a statement with a bold lipstick! Sometimes even just putting on my barely-there nude lippy helps and I feel so sophisticated. I notice I feel more confident in myself when I'm wearing lipstick, and I'll be more outgoing!
If I'm just staying home all day - so, every day really - I normally choose one of my creamy Colour Crush lipsticks from The Body Shop for a hit of hydration as well as some prettiness.
Going out and need a mask? No problem! Matte lip liquids have my back. These long lasting lipsticks dry quickly so I don't have to worry about smudging my lipstick while I do my food shop for the week. Plus I still look pretty for the drive home.
Makeup has such a short use by date; you might as well get as much use out of it as possible!
Have you noticed a difference in how often you wear makeup since the original lockdown? Have you noticed a change in your mood? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time,
