I like lipstick. I like it a lot. I wear it all the time, usually in red; I get it from my mom she always wore red lipstick. I feel put together when I’m wearing lipstick. I could actually just be at home doing laundry, but my lipstick helps me do it better. ;) Don’t you feel like you can conquer the world with bold lips?
So how do I keep it from getting all over the place with two little ones? Well I won’t say that it doesn’t accidentally smear on their clothes sometimes or that the evidence of kisses on their heads doesn’t get on my cheek from time to time, but meh. I’m a mom. :) I don’t have the magic answer to keep it perfectly in place all day, but I have a few tips to help it stay on a little bit longer. I’m going to take you through my lipstick process. It’s so simple and so easy. :)
First set the ground work, exfoliate those lips! It will keep your lips from cracking and therefore flaking off that beautiful color. The color will instead go right on your lips instead of dead skin. Boo.
If you have naturally dark lips, like me, brush your foundation over your lips. It will make the color pop and be a proper rendering of the color profile.
Use concealer around your lips. It will keep the lipstick from bleeding. Bleeding lipstick makes me sad.
The most important rule… Know this, lipstick or makeup will not make you beautiful. You already are.
That’s all! Seriously easy right?
Next time shall I show you how to make that color more dynamic? :D Makeup is so fun! OK, now go strut your sassy self over to the makeup counter and pick up a red or a bright pink lipstick! Bold lips are no longer scary. :) Peace and love, my sisters. Xoxo
P.S. Excuse the unfocused points. That’s what happens when you only have 20 minutes to film! :D Go ugly early, right?
