MY LIPSTICK STORY”
Three years ago, comedian Franchesca Ramsey shared her lipstick story in an inspiring monologue. The video paints Ramsey’s insecurity about her lips growing up. To her, they looked like “identical burger buns” that didn’t need to draw any more more attention with colors. But one day, everything changed when a professional makeup artist at her photo shoot applied a lippie that boosted her confidence to wear bold lipstick everyday. She stated: “My lipstick story was inspired by the lovely Tracee Ellis Ross. Now of course I wanted to share my growing lipstick collection but more importantly, as a black woman I thought it was important to talk about self love and the journey to accept my full lips. So next time someone says black women can’t wear color, tell them they can’t write your lipstick story.” … Simply put, this story is touching and beautiful!
