14 Quotes About Lipstick Southern Women Live By
Southern women are a force to be reckoned with, and it’s all because our mamas taught us to be strong, just as their mamas taught them to be. We know our own self-worth and know the power of self-confidence. And although Mama stressed that beauty is within, and even the prettiest face can’t fix a bad attitude, she did teach us to look our best. Putting ourselves together isn’t about impressing anyone else—it’s about showing that we take ourselves seriously and have self-respect. One thing that Mama would never dare leave the house without is her lipstick. From the brightest reds to the palest pinks, there’s no confidence quite like the kind that a swipe of lipstick can grant, and these lipstick quotes sum up how Southern women feel about their lipstick. From some of our favorite Southern women like Dolly Parton and Reese Witherspoon to makeup masterminds like Coco Chanel and Bobbi Brown, these are true words of beauty wisdom. By the way, the next time Mama tells you to “add a little color,” you’ll know where that lipstick quote actually came from. Behind the Bible and Mama’s recipe cards (and advice), these lipstick quotes might be your new favorite words.
