Seeing Pink

I keep in mind utilizing make-up for the primary time… It was my grandmother’s lipstick. The packaging was fairly an atrocity – neon inexperienced plastic, adorned with golden roses that might disintegrate after per week of use.

However, inside this weird casing was a miracle employee. The lipstick itself was clear with a slight pistachio undertone. However, as soon as utilized, it could flip brilliant crimson in seconds! And similar to that, I, an ugly-5-year-old-duckling, would flip right into a soon-to-be-femme-fatale.

I’m kidding right here, certainly I used to be cute!

And, I all the time encourage our fashions to strip their faces bare for our shoots, taking inspiration from girls who by no means put a contact of mascara on, even for particular events. Nothing screams confidence greater than zero make-up.

Aside from possibly a crimson lip, for which I’ll all the time have a particular place in my coronary heart. It’s concurrently ultra-feminine and takes balls to put on.
