Day 4: Lipstick You’d Wear On A Date
20-Day Lipstick Challenge
I think I’ve matured. If I had already been wearing lipstick when I started dating Eric, I might’ve been someone who would wear whatever color I wanted even when that color would make him feel uncomfortable.
We’ve been together for almost 7 years and I think he deserves to go out on a date with me not wearing a blackened purple lipstick. Before anyone jumps into conclusions, it’s not that I am wearing makeup for him solely. It’s more about being considerate. I know he doesn’t prefer the darkest of dark lipsticks on me, so I try to avoid those when we spend solo time with each other. I’d like to think that if he had a shirt that I didn’t like, he would make a mental note and not wear it on a date with me, too.
Eric respects my makeup preferences, but he tells me what he doesn’t like. It doesn’t take much of me to wear soft pink or my-lips-but-better colors, anyway. Sometimes I bust out a wine red, he’s fine with it, but most times, I stick with ‘safer’ colors.
Lately, I’ve been picking up OFRA Laguna Beach (worn in the photo above) a lot on date days (actually, even on non-date days). It reminds me a lot of MAC Please Me, but I prefer Laguna Beach because it doesn’t make my lips look dry and pasty.
For me, this is one of the more interesting categories in the 20-Day Lipstick Challenge. How does one decide which colors are best or appropriate for a date?
