I’ve never worn red lipstick. I love the look, but I’ve never worn it. Why is that?
I could tell you it’s because I had yellow teeth and it didn’t suit me. But really it’s because I didn’t think that I could pull it off. It really comes down to confidence.
I like Mel Robbins definition of confidence.
“Confidence is the willingness to try.” —Mel Robbins
This morning in the shower, I was thinking about the red lipstick. Thinking do I actually like it? Perhaps I don’t.
And I realised that the reason that I thought I didn’t, was because I didn’t have feedback from others about whether they thought I could pull it off.
Then I thought about it. If no one else is involved, I f**king love red lipstick.
So wear the red lipstick. What ever your red lipstick is, just f**king do it.
