WHY DO I READ LIPS?
I've had the privilege of bringing my Lipstick Reading art to many wonderful venues, from Bloomberg Summer Parties, to Cosmopolitan and Estee Lauder events...., I recently did the opeing of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel and I adore celebrations of all kinds.
Why do I read lips? The simplest answer is that I love to really connect with people. Reading faces and reading lip prints is all about connecting directly with another person, in a highly personal way, for just a moment. A real moment. One where everything is possible, where things that are known are sensed and brought to the intimate surface. Not the digital surface, for just a moment.
It's how I connected with my grandmother, who taught me how to read Tarot. It's how I connected as a young woman with my mother, sisters, and girl friends.
Reading lips is a bit of old-fashioned magic in the name of love, hope and positivity--in an age where we find it difficult to connect with the lightness of our inner being. Lipstick draws attention to the lips and makes them stand out, and the purpose for wearing it remains the same since it was first invented in 1884: to express inner beauty with outer self, to announce our uniqueness.
