Lipstick Trick!

Lipstick Trick!

I love wearing lipstick! I have lots of awesome shades I would love to incorporate more into my daily looks – reds, purples, oranges, bright pinks, you name it! But I don’t think my bold hues are appropriate for the office environment I work in. This doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate lip colour and are bound to only wearing clear and nude gloss. Rather, it’s a matter of finding a creative way of applying lipstick such that you get the benefit of added colour in a way appropriate for casual wear, and the office. The solution?

Use your fingers! Why does this work? It gives you the flexibility to build the hue up as much or as little as you see fit. Below, I used my Annabelle Lipstick Crayon:

This colour can be quite dark if you apply it directly onto your lips. Below I start by not wearing anything on my lips at all, and move to 1 layer of this shade applied with my fingers. Next I build it up and add another layer. I would wear #1 and #2 to work, and save #3 for a night out.

Applying lipstick or lip stain with your fingers creates a more natural and long lasting effect too!

I have to tell you about this lipstick, or lip stain rather.
A friend told me about it a while ago. She claimed that it stays on all night. What are the chances of a color staying on your lips after you eat, drink, kiss, or whatever else you do? But I figured I’d try it. It only cost $12 so I didn’t have too much to lose but potentially a new favorite to gain!

This lipstick is available in 30 different wonderful shades (click on picture for link). The one I’m wearing is ‘Keep up the Flame’ #025, but I have a feeling I’ll be adding more to my collection. This lipstick has 2 sides to it. One is the actual colour, and the other is the hydrating balm. After applying the colour your lips will feel a bit dry but that’s ok. Make sure the color dries completely and then apply the balm, which will hydrate your lips and add shine.
