The best fashion and beauty advice my aunt ever gave me was...
If you really want to try something new but are uncomfortable and unsure, try wearing it at home first. Do it until you become comfortable and confident, then share it with the world.
I always wanted to wear a color on my lips that wasn't just a plain, shiny lip gloss but I was always hesitant. I was envious of the women I encountered wearing a bright and bold lip, they looked so effortlessly cool. When I dared to wear a painted lip, I would end up wiping it off either right before I left my house or shortly after. Then one day, I remember the advice my aunt gave me years ago and decided to give it a try. I'll admit, it felt silly at first wearing lipstick at home in my pjs and I avoided the mirror as much as possible. But then after a few days of wearing Clinique's Punch Pop at home, I was pleasantly surprised to find the confidence to wear it outside of the house. These days I don't go to many places besides the grocery store but the next time I have a dinner date with a friend, I know I'll be fearlessly excited to wear a lipstick.
I'm a twenty-something mama who honestly has no clue what I want to do in life at the moment. For the longest time that scared me but now I embracing it and documenting it here.
