25 Lipsticks of December
I'm not sure if you know this but 2020 was tough. And like everyone else I've been trying to find ways to treat myself in small ways. Last year my Mum got me a beauty advent calendar (Makeup Revolution) and it was amazing - I loved opening all the doors each day to a tiny highlighter or lipstick or bronzer. So in an attempt to treat myself I started to look into beauty advent calendars again.
Now the thing is, I'm kind of not that into makeup. I buy palettes and never wear them, I don't really know how to use highlighter and I still can't do winged eyeliner at 30.
What I do like, really, is lipstick.
So I looked on the MAC website at their advent calendar, justified the price by "this year has been tough and I haven't been anywhere" and then decided to have a think first.
And this was where the idea for my lipstick challenge came from.
The original idea was to buy a wooden advent calendar and get Phil to put one of my many lipsticks in for every day of December. I'd open the door to a lipstick and I would wear it.
Eventually. however, I realised that with one day a week furloughed and weekends spent committed to sweatpants and no makeup, there was no way I was going to wear lipstick every day for all of December. And also some days I would want a bright lip and what if on those days I pulled out a nude?
So instead I wrote out a list of 25 of my lipsticks (yes, I own more than 25...) and allocated them a different day for all of December, and on the 30th December I wore my final lipstick of the month!
I documented my lipstick each day in a Twitter thread, but here they all are together...
