I’m going to come clean – I hate wearing make up. There’s just something in me that spoils it- I’d usually end up with raccoon eyes or a clown mouth due to randomly scratching / touching parts of my face. In a nutshell, I end up looking like a kid trying on her mom’s stash, so I make it a point to only wear makeup during events.
In the hopes of doing different things this year, I decided to start by attempting to wear red lipstick. I received a tube of Just Miss Lipstick from a friend last Christmas, hence I had no excuse to flake.
Sunday night, I was really obsessing about not overdoing it so I was searching online for #OOTD inspirations. Good thing, I was out on leave the next day so I had time to experiment with my outfit.
I ended up wearing super basic clothes: white polo, black tank top, mommy jeans, and beige sandals. I was meeting a former colleague who I haven’t seen for years, so I am also conscious to not overdo everything. You know, do not let the years change you. *wink*
When I saw her, she immediately said “Blooming ka!”. Thank God, that put me at ease! I told her it was just the lipstick, and then we went to girl talk. Or rather, mommy talk.
I also passed by the office, so colleagues also complemented my “powerful lips“. I was very happy with the result! Not to the extent that I’d do it everyday though…maybe just on Mondays? It made me feel good, and even more confident about myself. I guess it is safe to say that I’m joining #MakeupMondays now?
I’m too shy to ask other people to take my photos, so I ended up doing selfies in our rooftop. Good thing no one’s there!
I am yet to improve on the photo quality, but at least I am able to get *fairly* decent ones! Also, the sun was setting so I’m running out of light!
I’m was trying to figure out how close I should be in the frame when the timer ended. Yup, 3 seconds is too short, Nina.
My takeaway: Don’t be afraid of doing something that you’ve never done before.
So, this is my first attempt to do an outfit post, take #ootd photos, do blogger poses, and wear red lipstick. Got any tips for me? I could totally use some. 🙂
Enjoy life. Cheers!
