Get Luscious Lips With Lipstick
Posted on April 11, 2012
A simple application of lipstick can take your entire look from drab to fab and make you look sexy, or fresh in a matter of minutes (depending on the lipstick colors you’ve used). Carrying your best lipstick with you in your handbag can be a life saver when you need to look and feel good about your appearance.
Choosing the right lipstick colors is imperative as there are a wide range of lipstick colors available in the market, there’s purple lipstick, red lipstick and even orange lipstick for the daring, you can opt for a nude lipstick if you’re into understated style. Choose the lipstick colors based on your skin tone. If you have light skin, go for light shades like pinks & Peaches. IF you are on the darker side of the skin shade spectrum, you can opt for a deeper wine color, but you can always mix things up, as long as you have the confidence to pull it off and are comfortable in your own skin.
Also be mindful that the finish of the lipstick works with your lip size, the finish is basically the way the lipstick looks on your lips. Different finishes are Shiny finish (this lipstick finish makes your lips look moist and is a lip plumper), matte finish (which is the basic flat color). If your lips are on the thinner side, you can opt for a shiny finish, in order to make your lips appear fuller and acts as a lip plumper. If you have medium sized lips, you’re lucky as you can look smashing in any lipstick finish!
Another factor to consider while choosing lipsticks is your lifestyle and how often you can touch up your lipstick colors. If you have kids or are working and cannot touch up your lipstick colors, you can opt for a lipstick from the many long lasting lipsticks in the market (some claim to stay on for 24 hours!). If you travel a lot and are exposed to the sun, you should opt for a lipstick that has a UV guard, as this will protect your lips, while making them look gorgeous! If you have super dry lips and live in an area that is cold, opt for one of the many ultra moisturizing lipsticks available (which act as a lip balm and lipstick at the same time).
