I'm listening to Flawless as I'm putting this blog post together. I wish I can wake up everyday to a glam team that can doll me up like Beyonce. Unfortunately, most of us don't have our very own glam team. Our glam team is ourselves and let's be real, nobody wakes up flawless (unless you’re Beyonce). We need at least 15-45 minutes to get ready in the morning.
For me, doing my hair takes the longest, so it's usually straightened with a flat iron or put up into a ponytail. Today, I went with a ponytail and a casual look for errands. I had about 30 minutes to get ready. This is what happens when you decide to sleep in that extra 15 minutes (haha). The trick in not looking like you were in a rush in the mornings is to wear a nice lip colour. You can also throw on some simple accessories, an easy trick to get people to think that you've put in the extra effort to style your outfit.
Ok, I know you're going to ask, “which brand and colour lipstick are you wearing?”. I'm wearing Lolita (Chestnut Rose) Everlasting Liquid Lipstick by Kat Von D here, which I had purchased at Sephora. It's always sold out and I was lucky enough to get my hands on this tube last week. It was the very last one too! Good luck on finding it at the store ladies, you can certainly order it online too! If you're reading this Kat Von D, please sponsor your girl.
