It’s Monday, which means that last night a litany of things ran through all our heads. All the meetings we have, the obligations we face, the tough road ahead to get to Friday again. It’s enough to make you want to hide under the covers and call in scared, as in “I’m afraid I won’t make it today.”
I’ve found that the best way to face the day on Mondays is to pop on a little red lipstick. In my eyes, putting your best face forward is the most effective way to handle the situation and facing the day (or that big meeting) with a pop of red on the mouth is most certainly the best way to make a big bold statement. I think red lipstick is incredibly bold. I mean Geralyn Lucas wrote a whole book on why she wore lipstick to her mastectomy. Now THAT’S what I’m talking ’bout, Willis.
Put on a brave face this week. My color of choice most recently has been M·A·C Lipstick in M·A·C Red ($15), which is a gorgeous cherry scarlet hue that looks on everyone. No, seriously, it really does.
Be beautiful and brave. Put your face on and go handle the situation. You can do it.
