Lipsticks Tips & Tricks

MAC Cosmetic Picture

There is many different ways to apply lipstick; with a lipsticks brush, some their middle finger or mostly used straight from the lipstick tube. Just use whichever one you’re most comfortable with.

The most flattering lip colors will be one or two shades darker than your natural lip color- According to MUA Bobbi Brown

Here are some Tips &Tricks to use/keep in mind when you’re applying your Lipstick.

·         Your lipstick will last longer when you apply your lip liner first and fill in your lips with it.

·         You can line your lips before or after you apply your lipstick. It really depends on your lip type, thin, full or somewhere in between.

·         Please ladies never use a dark liner with a light lipstick, make sure the liner matches the lipstick or gloss.

·         Never test lipstick on your lips, it’s just plain unsanitary and unhygienic. Test on your finger tip instead or the back of your hand. (keep it clean girls and guys)

·         Bought a lipstick you don’t like? or the colors off? Don’t trash it just blend it with another and make something new and fun!

·         Lick your lips before you take a sip from a glass to avoid lipstick getting on the glass.

·         After applying lipstick, take your index finger and pop it into your mouth, then pull it out, the excess lipstick will come off on your finger (make sure you wash your hands before and after)

·         Keep in mind that not every color works for everybody.

·         Oranges, browns, including corals look good on few people; also these colors tend to make teeth appear yellow.

·         To downplay yellow teeth, try lipsticks with bluish undertone. Shades that also works, plums, pinks, wines, and violets.

·         End of the tube? there is almost always more inside the bottom of the tube (so don't trash it!), but try using a  small clean cosmetic spatula or popsicle stick, and scoop the rest into a small jar to use with a lipstick brush. making sure you get every cent of your money!!!

Some Color Ideas for your Skin Color

Fair Skin: Look great in lipstick shades such as nudes in a slightly apricot shade, pinks, and light corals. Keep away from browns.
Medium Skin: looks hot in roses, mauves, dark apricot, and berries. Pass the bright reds and go for the goal with deep burgundy instead.
Dark Skin: Deep plums, chocolate, or reds, lean towards browns or purples.
