National Lipstick Day is recognized annually on July 29. For some women, lipstick is the only makeup requirement. Whether sheer and light or dark or bright, July 29 is a day for all kinds of lipstick.
Throughout the ages, controversy has surrounded lipstick. British Parliament banned it in 1770 calling it a devilish attempt to trick men into marriage. They likened it to witchcraft. Lipstick has been known to contain poisonous materials.
It is said Sarah Bernhardt created a scandal by applying “lip rouge” in public. Queen Victoria considered it impolite, yet Winston Churchill thought it was an excellent morale booster during WWII and George Washington supposedly was a lipstick wearer.
Lipstick can change with moods or with the scenery. Need a little boost to your attitude? Punctuate it with your lipstick.
