Wearing lipstick is one of the most important things a girl can add to her daily regimen. It doesn’t matter if you are simply running errands on your day off, working a 9-5, or going on a hot date, by adding a beautiful hue or gloss to your lips, you will experience a whole new level of confidence.
Lipstick is a cosmetic product, that is applied to the lips but has the ability to decorate the whole face. They are produced by using a variety of waxes, oils (such as olive, mineral, caster, lanolin & petroleum), pigments and emollients. These ingredients are what help your lipstick to stay intact.
Lipsticks, personally, help me feel more “put together” and pretty. I know many women who will not even leave the house with out it on. If you are a newbie, I recommend using a gloss or sheer tone, and gradually work up to brighter colors and matte tones. Note: If you are going to be wearing a shade of lipstick that pops, then make sure to wear your eye make up on the neutral side.
Also, it is very important that you choose the right hue for your skin tone. Skin tones can either be Cool or Warm. A cool trick to determine your skin tone is, go into direct sunlight, look at the inside of your wrists. If your veins appear to be purple-ish, then you are a cool tone if you see, yellow or green-ish, then you are a warm tone. Pick your lipstick accordingly.
Spring and Summer Trends are pinks and corals. Winter trends are deep plums or rich mauve’s.
I highly recommended that you apply a lip stick or gloss before leaving the house, you will feel very presentable all day long.
