You know how I love red lipstick, high heels, and big hair–the mark of a true southern lady. My grandmother Norton must have put on her red lipstick every morning as she opened her eyes. I can’t remember ever seeing her without it. I just loved it then and I love it now.
When I first met Michael he was coming to Birmingham for the launch of his skincare and makeup line at a local department store. He was swamped like a rock star, as women were going crazy about his line of lipstick. Southern women love lipstick. It was a time when brown lipstick was the rage and the young girls had embraced it, but the women with a little more “maturity” were longing for color. I managed to reach through the crowd and hand him my business card and screamed, “let’s talk.” Of course he thought I was a crazy, but when we finally had a moment, I introduced him to Southern Lady Magazine, and discussed my thoughts on how his wonderful products were perfect for our readers.
Several months later, Michael introduced Southern Lady lipstick, which is still in his line today, along with Phyllis lipstick (a golden red/bronze). After all, we need many shades of red.
I spoke with Michael last week, and we were reminiscing about the past 15 years since that day. Michael was a featured speaker at our Southern Lady Celebration weekends and everyone adored him and the valuable information he shared about makeup and skin care. He has also written many articles for the magazine on beautiful makeovers. So, we are celebrating his international success today as well as our 15-year friendship, with Michael giving away 3 packages to 3 lucky Ribbon readers.
