Where do I begin in sharing my love for lip products?
It all began a long time ago
I was never the kid interested in makeup
Never the one playing in my mum’s wardrobe
So where did this love stem from?
Gifts from family every birthday and Christmas
What does a little girl desire?
The sets I would receive stayed untouched until much later
As the story unfolds and the kid grows older
Watching those around me playing with products
Enhancing key features
Receiving attention and compliments
Still unfazed, in a world of my own
Until reality hits and I develop a primary school crush
New to this world
An unfamiliar surrounding
Notice me is all that I think
Whilst simultaneously wanting to blend in
A shy girl, sensitive to the world
That soon all changes when the truth comes to light
Protected in a bubble
Looking towards others for guidance
The days of secondary school consisted of foundation
Making baby steps towards the art of makeup
Lighting the beauty flame a small curiosity
Slowly understanding each product
Yet not caring enough to experiment on myself
Still, to this day, minimal makeup is how I roll
Comfortable in my skin with an admiration for colour
The love for lipstick was discovered
Playing it safe in pinks and nudes
Only as time passed did I reach for classic reds
Gaining more confidence made me playful in purple
Yet matte Fuschia from Seventeen has my heart
Comfortably sitting on my lips
Demanding attention in a subtle way
A season of light-heartedness
Reach for the bold colours you bought yet neglect
It’s time to break them out
Let the night be your oyster
Step out of your comfort zone for the smallest of details
Remember one thing, if auntie Rih can flawlessly rock any colour she wishes
Why can’t you?
What’s the reason for refusing rainbow shades?
Do as you wish, let yourself blossom
Don’t halt the glow up
Become the rose that many admire in her true form
Recently I’ve been reaching for lipgloss on a regular basis, but it’s time to change the rotation add some colour to the mix. This summer catch me wearing purple, red and pink matte lipsticks. If a gloss is involved expect sparkles from the glitter, and finally, where would I be without a few nude lip liners.
What makeup product makes you happy?
Until next time, stay fabulous,
