Another sketchbook project image.
I had to laugh when I read that quote (above.) When I was growing up, my mother always used to say, "You'd look so much better if you'd put on some lipstick."
I was never into lots of makeup or lipstick, unless it was a neutral color...but even then, I was typically more interested in its moisturizing capabilities than anything else. But my mom almost always wore a really kick-ass red lipstick, and you know--unlike most people, she could really carry it off, and she always looked great in it! It doesn't really look that good on most people, in my opinion. I remember as a little girl, I loved watching her put on her lipstick. She was transformed in Revlon's "Love that Red."
But then, unlike me, she had, (as she herself would call it,) "good liposity."
If she was still alive, August 25th would have been her birthday. Here's a big red-lipstick kiss for my mom.
"Where lipstick is concerned, the important thing is not color, but to accept God's final word on where your lips end." (Jerry Seinfeld)
Amen to that.
