I can’t believe that I can finally say this, but spring is here—and this season, I’m craving a major overhaul of, well, my entire life. This is the year, my friends, that my life is going to get Kondo-ed from top to bottom, my wardrobe is finally going to get capsule-ed, and my makeup bag is going to get a serious update.
Since becoming a mom (and, actually while I was pregnant), I’ve re-discovered how amazingly transformative lipstick can be. If you’re feeling tired or generally blah (from growing/raising a little person or otherwise), it can be tempting to pile on a bunch of concealer or eyeliner in an attempt to counteract blotchy skin or bleary eyes—but in my experience, these moves can end up just highlighting fatigue more than they detract from it. Instead, I’ve learned to apply just a touch of cover-up, a brow tint, and then slap on a fabulous new lipstick shade. My lips, I reason, don’t give away how tired I am, which is why I’m treating myself to some fabulous new lippies in celebration of spring and new motherhood. Everything from mauve nude to orange to bright berry will look fresh this season—which will you choose?
