It's National Lipstick Day! Although I don't wear it much nowadays, I can remember a time in my life when I NEVER left the house without it. It started in middle school, I loved bright red, because I had heard it was the favorite of one of my then celebrity crushes.
|When Mark Wahlberg was known as "Marky Mark"
I don't remember which shades I wore in high school, but I'm pretty sure I ended up "retiring" the red for colors that were a little less bold. At that time in my life, putting on lipstick was so high on my list of priorities for getting ready to go anywhere, that I wouldn't even go to the hospital (via ambulance, long story) without putting it on!
Now, I wear mostly glosses, and usually only to church or special work related functions. It's so weird to look back. I remember thinking, at the time, how bizarre it was that my mother could go out without putting lipstick on first. Now, I look back and wonder when it started becoming less important to me that I wear it.
