Every woman wants to walk into a room and feel like she owns it. Confidence– in my humble opinion (backed by copious amounts of research and really smart people)– is critical to success and paramount to achieving your dreams. Looking good means feeling good. A swipe of red lipstick and a pair of heels that make your gams go for miles will help even the most insecure feel like they can rule the world. Don't get me wrong, I subscribe to the belief that true self confidence comes from within. However, I'd also argue that only women with a healthy love for self would wear and can work (said with a head flip and finger snap) that red lip and those five inch heals. Point is, to those of you who judge the hours spent getting ready, the head tilts while styling our outfits in the mirror and our obsession with the "no makeup makeup" look- don't underestimate the power of primping or the power of ladies who primp. One could be the leader of the Free World someday and that beautiful red lip just might help get her there.
