“Where lipstick is concerned, the important thing is not color, but to accept God’s final word on where your lips end.” -Jerry Seinfeld
We all know her. The woman who refuses to accept where her real lip ends and the rest of her face begins. Her lip liner extends well beyond her lips, and she colors in between the lines with her favorite shade of lipstick or worse, clear lip gloss.
It is nearly impossible for me to take her seriously because all I can picture while looking at her is my 4 year old sister coloring on her face after sneakily lifting Mom’s lipstick from her purse.
Being around her makes me uncomfortable and her “artwork” leads me to believe she is uncomfortable with herself. Over the past few months I’ve seen women apply this technique in increasing numbers. Maybe it is the latest in lip fashion and I’m in the dark. I just don’t like it.
What make up techniques make you uncomfortable to look at or even wear? I have a tough time wearing bold lip colors, though I always admire deep red and plum shades on other women. I’m stuck in a Bamboo Pink rut.
