lipstick bandit: shall we start with the basics.


I thought I'd start out giving it to you slow...lol

The first beauty lesson I learned long before I ever picked up a make-up brush was taught to me by a boy named *Rudy. I will never forget it. I bought a lip gloss for like $1 from the local drugstore. I 'd had my eye on Rudy for a long time and I planned it out. As me and my best friend were eating lunch in the cafeteria, I would call him over, swipe on my lip gloss and then we would fall in love.
Sure enough, my plan worked. I swiped on the cherry red gloss and asked him what he thought. He took one look at me and said, "You should've put Chapstick on because your lips are jacked!"


I was hurt - embarassed. But then, I pressed my lips together and realized, Rudy was right.


Fall is coming ladies and lips of the plum variety are in season. Don't get caught out there. Make sure lips are pout-ready by priming them first with some type of lip balm. It works...what can I say?


Til later,


Stay fab. Stay beautiful, Be you.
