If there is one makeup item, I cannot live without it’s lipstick. I can probably go completely barefaced as long as I can apply lipstick, without it I feel naked.
Lipstick itself has been around for thousands of years and has come to symbolize so many things for so many different women over the eras.
During the 20th Century lipstick really came into its own with more and more styles, textures and colours. And today the lipstick industry is huge with most major makeup brands offering colours to suit every skin tone.
No matter your style, age or race wearing lipstick can make a bold statement. It can feel empowering and I for one feel like an absolute girl boss when I am rocking a red lipstick.
So, whether you’re just nipping to the shops, on a hot date or out with the girls a lipstick is a staple addition to any makeup bag. Here are just a few of my favourites for you to try this National Lipstick Day.
