The older I get, the more I realize the importance of never leaving the house without lipstick. In fact, I wear it even when I don’t leave the house. It makes me feel sooo much better when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, and nothing lifts my spirits better when I’m getting ready for a night out on the town than putting on that perfect shade of red lipstick.
“Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” – Elizabeth Taylor
And, so, I intend to kick start the New Year in a great black dress and a “kick-ass red lipstick,” to quote Gwyneth Paltrow, who is not someone I normally associate with red lipstick, but you never really know about us women and what catches our fancy, now do you? They’ve yet to invent a reliable algorithm for that one.
