I’m the type of woman who has a different style every day. On Monday, I might be dressed to the nines with flawless makeup, and by the time Friday rolls around, I’m likely to be in my sweats with a bad case of mom-ponytail. OK, maybe it’s more the other way around. Anyway, you get the idea.
You don’t need to wear a full face of picture-perfect makeup every day to be a Bombshell. We all know the true essence of beauty radiates from within. But sometimes, you want to spice it up! Whether it’s a night out with your man or you’re feeling a little sassy while getting dressed for work, there are two “must have” items every Bombshell should keep in her cosmetic case: mascara and red lipstick.
Mascara is self-explanatory. Your eyes look brighter, more alert, and the whites actually look whiter with just a touch of mascara. Reviva Labs Hypoallergenic Mascara comes in black and brown. It’s a great option for women with sensitive skin.
Red lipstick is a Bombshell’s best friend. Now, not all of you are going to be into wearing Fire Engine Red. And you shouldn’t! Maybe you’re more of a tinted gloss type of woman. Juice Organics PomBerry Lip Amplifier will give you a nice plumping effect and is made with all organic ingredients.
Or maybe you’ve never found the right shade of red? Don’t be afraid to keep searching. Some women look great in a nice poppy red and others do better with a cooler shade, such as cranberry or garnet. Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Lipstick is available in more than 20 colors, from flirty and fun to seductive and sultry.
I have this simple bit of advice for my Bombshells. The day you’re feeling your worst, when you’re down and you want to crawl back under the covers with one of those one-pound chocolate bars and a really cheesy romance novel, that’s the day you most need your red lipstick. Trust me. Even though you don’t feel like it, take the time to pamper yourself, just a little. I promise, while you’re out and about, everyone you run into will tell you how nice you look. And the next thing you know, you’ll be smiling and saying, “Thank you, this is my new favorite lipstick!”
