If red noses, daffodils and jeans just aren’t things you can get behind, we have the charity day for you… Friday September 20 2013 is the second annual Bright Pink Lipstick Day. By slicking on your brightest shade of pink, you’re promoting the importance that all women, everywhere, should be proactive about their breast and ovarian health by investigating their family history. (As an aside, coming from a family full of nurses I can say that this advice isn’t just good for breast and ovarian health, but for your health overall.)
To put it bluntly, knowing your family history can ultimately be the difference between life and death. With all the facts at hand you can make informed decisions, such as increasing the frequency of scans.
Bright Pink Lipstick Day is supported by Revlon who have released a limited edition lipstick shade called Pink Hope (above), available in stores now.
Not quite your shade? My pick of pink lippies for the day is below (I’ll be wearing Lipstick Queen’s Chinatown sheer lip pencil, shown below). Don’t forget to hashtag it up on the day using #brightpinklipstickday!
