Makeup can be a powerful thing. It can give you that confidence boost when you’re feeling a bit worse for wear. It can mask that spot on your chin that’s been the bane of your life for the last 3 weeks. Other times it can be just a bit of fun with colour that never sees the light of day. Whatever feeling makeup gives you, there is nothing like finding the perfect red lipstick. When the shade, formula and lasting power are all bang on, it’s like magic. When I apply a slick of Kat Von D’s Everlasting liquid lipstick in the shade Outlaw it makes me feel confident and powerful.
It’s my go to red, without a doubt. It’s extremely opaque and long-lasting, which is everything you should want from a red lipstick. Minimal upkeep required. I had afternoon tea last month wearing it and it was still perfectly in tact after the feasting had concluded. I also think the shade would really suit everyone.
When people say to me ‘you don’t need all that makeup’ or ‘you look better with more natural look’, I never understand why. Most of the time I wear makeup because I just bloody love applying it! I strive for my confidence to not be connected to the way that I look, but sometimes doubt sets in and the two go hand in hand. Self confidence is something that a lot of us battle with at some point, so if you have to rely on a pot of concealer or a red lipstick to fake it till you make it, then frankly who gives a f*ck!
You Do You!
