I can’t claim any sort of expertise on the history of lipstick-wearing goalkeepers, so please help me out if I’m missing out on any trailblazers. But at this moment, South Korea’s goalkeeper Kim Jung-mi is wearing pinkish purple-like (OH GAWD, I DON’T KNOW LIPSTICK COLORS) lipstick during their group opener against Brazil.
That’s groundbreaking, I think, but still not the most important part of this breaking lipstick story. The most important thing? Her lipstick matches with her goalkeeper jersey.
That is so real. I look at the “Live Your Goals” patch on her shoulder and think, “Live that life, homegirl. Do you. I’m trying to be you when I grow up.”
Shout out to Kim Jung-mi for keeping it 💯 and not giving a damn, even though she just got scored on.
