Grace Coddington and the Lipstick

Acabo de leer esta historia de Grace Coddington y el pintalabios en Into The Gloss. Cuando le preguntan sobre el maquillaje, ella explica: “Tenía 14 años o así y un novio. A mi hermana mayor le decía ‘oh, estoy tan enamorada…’  Y ella me decía, ‘¿te ha besado ya?’  Y yo como ‘¿qué que?, ¿qué es eso?’  Y me dijo, ‘Bueno, ya sabes, si te pones más atractiva estoy segura que te besará. Te tienes que poner pintalabios.’  Así que me dejó el suyo. Probablemente era 1955 así que el color debía ser un rosa perlado. En cualquier caso, me puse el pintalabios y cuando llegó mi novio me dio mi primer beso. ¡Y me desmayé! quiero decir que no me llegué a quedar inconsciente pero me temblaban las rodillas. Sentí que me desmayaba. Obviamente ¡el pintalabios hizo el truco por mi!”

Si… un poco de pintalabios hace el truco.

I’ve just read this article at Into The Gloss about Grace Coddington and the lipstick: “I had this boyfriend and I guess I was 14 or something, and I had an older sister and I kept saying, ‘Oh, I’m so in love. I’m so in love.’ And she kept saying, ‘Has he kissed you yet?’ And I’m like, ‘What’s that? What’s that?’ And she says, ‘Well, you know, if you make yourself more attractive, I’m sure he’ll kiss you. You should put some lipstick on.’ So she lent me her lipstick. It was probably 1955, something like that. So the color might have been something like a pearlized pink. Anyway, I put this lipstick on, and my boyfriend arrived at the door, and I got my first kiss. And I fainted! I was so working myself up for it that… I mean I didn’t completely go unconscious, but weak at the knees. I felt that was fainting. But lipstick did the trick for me, obviously!”

Yes… a touch of lipstick do the trick.
