Spending most of my childhood dancing competitively, red lipstick was the bane of my existence. It was messy and annoying to put on. But because I was always dancing, I was always wearing red lipstick. So once it wasn't a requirement for me to wear it, I promptly tossed everything that wasn't nude or blush colored into the garbage can.
Fast forward a few years and here I am, wearing red lipstick - on purpose. It's still terrifying to put on in the morning but unbelievably worth it. My favorite color right now? Anastasia Beverly Hills - Sarafine
