I love my red lipstick but if you know me, you know it normally ends up anywhere but my lips.
Teeth, wine glasses, mugs…even on other peoples cheeks from time to time, lipstick is extremely hard to confine to the area it’s supposed to be in.
So when I read the story saying Holly Willoughby had breached ‘girlcode’ by not telling Jodie Marsh she had lipstick on her teeth on live TV I had to stop and think.
How would I feel in that situation?
Firstly, it’s not Holly Willoughby’s fault that Jodie encountered this make up fail and if she HAD pointed it out, it would have made people focus on it. Now, as a self confessed lipstick smearaholic, I don’t know if I would have appreciated another woman bringing awareness to my mistake on national TV.
Like Jodie, people have chosen to embarrass me in a public situation like this in the past – probably to be nasty and put me down in front of others more than anything.
Therefore, Holly could have looked like she was being bitchy.
On the other hand, if she HAD made Jodie aware of the situation, she could have fixed herself and made light of it, instead of leaving her to walk away feeling like an idiot.
However, I don’t think Holly breached ‘girlcode’ because either way…she was unwillingly subjected to a lose lose situation.
What would you have done? It’s an awkward one!
Either way, some poor make up artist has probably been handed their P45 today…
