Hi loves! I hope you all had a good weekend. There is nothing that helps me feel better about myself in the morning than lipstick. I am truly addicted.
Now, I was not always this way. I remember the first time I put on lipstick I thought I looked like a clown. But I just forced myself to keep trying it and WA-LA! I now think my makeup isn’t complete without something on my lips.
Now for those beginners, I know that putting color so prominently on your face can be scary. My first tip however is to start off safe and then work your way up to bold.
The nudes: This is the perfect baby step into lipstick. Finding the right nude for skin tone will change your life! I recommend going to a Sephora or any makeup counter and trying on lipsticks. Even if you can’t afford them, this will give you a good idea of what to look for at the drugstore!
The pinks: These can range anywhere from a natural lip color all the way to barbie doll or bubblegum bright pink. This is the next step on your lipstick journey. These are the shades that you can really start to play with and slightly break out of your comfort zone. Once you feel comfortable in a pink lip, you are ready to go bold!
The purples: The right shade of purple can be so pretty and high fashion. For the bold colors, it is more about the look you are going for. You can be vampy and dark with a deep purple or just a little daring with a mauve.
The reds: This is the ultimate in retro, classic chic. Whenever I put on my red lipstick I feel so timeless and chic. It is a great way to really ooze sexy confidence. Whether you save it for a special occasion or rock it everyday, you will definitely be a show stopper.
