5 Reasons why lipstick makes life so much better

I don't know about you, but a bright shade of lipstick can really change my day around. I can't tell you how many times I've looked like a hot mess and classic red lipcolor came to the rescue. The truth is as annoying as applying, prepping, and reapplying lipstick can be, it's always worth it. It doesn't just make you look better, but it also affects you psychologically.

Despite what my fiancé thinks, women don't wear lipstick for men. In fact, most men don't even like it! We wear it because every time we do we look AND feel great. Don't wear lipstick? Here are a few reasons why you should!

It doesn't cost much: Doesn't matter what kind of financial troubles she's facing, you'd never catch my abuela without a tube of lipstick. She insists that when she's feeling down a bright lipstick instantly increases her morale—and it's so true! The best part is you can easily find yourself a great lipstick for less than 10 bucks. Way cheaper than it'd cost you to get a mani/pedi, facial, massage or blow out!

It instantly polishes up your look. I always have a tube of red or hot pink lipstick in my purse just in case I'm having a bad beauty day. If my hair is a mess and I had no time to do my makeup, a quick swipe of lipstick makes me look instantly put together.

It makes you look confident: There's a reason why red lipstick makes such a strong impression. It's because only a confident woman who wants to be seen dares to wear it. Plus, you just look sexier!

It's anti-aging: Ever notice how even viejitas wear lipstick? That's because lipstick isn't limited to any age. It makes everyone look fabulous young or old!

It's a source of strength: Lipstick, especially bright, bold shades like red tend to give off a powerful vibe. "Red lipstick is a source of strength," says Poppy King, creator of Lipstick Queen. "You put it on and suddenly you feel more capable than you did without it." Tell me that's not true!
