When I was a young woman waiting tables I received a bit of advice from the daytime, heavily-tipped, glamorous bartender. It was quite obvious by all the two-martini-lunch-businessmen showering her with their daily time and monetary affection that she was someone worth listening to… for beauty advice anyway. And she was beautiful.
Her advice?… “Never leave the house without putting on your lips. It shows you care about your appearance and makes a good impression.” If my memory serves me correctly, the advice came with a tube of lipstick (her not-so-subtle way of telling me to shut up and apply).
She was right. Lipstick is the icing on the cake, so to speak. It can take your look from business meeting to night on the town with a simple change in shade.
